Miesque: the multiple Group 1 winner is the dam of Mingun


Mingun to stand at York Stud in Denmark

KENTUCKY-BASED stallion Mingun has been sold to stand in Denmark at York Stud.

The ten-year-old son of A.P. Indy is a daughter of champion racemare Miesque, therefore a half-brother to top-class stallion Kingmambo and fellow sire Miesque's Son.

Mingun this year completed his sixth season at Lane's End. He retired to stud at a fee of $7,500, reduced to $5,000 for his last two seasons there.

He had his first stakes winner last month courtesy of the three-year-old Gunner, who took the Governor's Stakes over a mile at Indiana Downs.

He has sired two British winners: Mingun Bell won two races as a juvenile last year, and Avow has won twice this season.

Mingun was trained by Aidan O'Brien for the Niarchos family, who also bred him. All three of his wins came as a three-year-old, a maiden race and a Listed over a mile, followed by the 1m2f Group 3 Meld Stakes at Leopardstown.

His half-sisters include multiple Group 1 winner East Of The Moon and Monevassia, dam of dual Group 1-winning juvenile Rumplestiltskin.

"Mingun has been sold privately through Tiranga Bloodstock, UK and Scandinavian Raceweb, Denmark, to a syndicate of Danish horse owners. He will stand with us in 2011 and beyond, but his stud fee is yet to be decided", said Alexander Elsass, director of York Stud.
