"With the incredible success of Acclamation and his leading first season sire son, Dark Angel, Equiano's sire line is on fire at the moment and as the fastest and highest ratedhorse from this sire line, it is no surprise that Equiano has yet another full book in 2012."
Equiano has just returned to Newsells Park Stud after shuttling to Swettenham Stud in Australia, where he covered nearly 100 mares. Hewill be on parade at the TBA Stallion Parade at Tattersalls on Thursday February 2, as will Newsells Park Stud's other resident sire, dual Group 1 winner Mount Nelson.
Equiano stands for £8,000 while Mount Nelson, whose first crop are two-year-olds, stands for £6,000.
