Victory Note to stand at Dairy House Stud

DAIRY HOUSE STUD in Wiltshire has purchased 14-year-old Victory Note to join Septieme Ciel, Baryshnikov and Crosspeace on its stallion roster.

The son of Fairy King from the immediate family of Prix d'Harcourt hero and sire Welsh Term won the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes and finished third in the Horris Hill Stakes at two, and improved at three to score in the Greenham Stakes and the Poule d'Essai des Poulains, in which he beat Muhthathir and Desert Prince into the places.

Initially retired to Coolmore, he has spent the past seven seasons at Haras de la Reboursiere et du Montaigu in Normandy. His best progeny include Lockinge Stakes runner-up Majors Cast and the smart sprinters Peace Offering, Philharmonic and Rockets ‘N Rollers.

He is also emerging as a useful source of jumping talent, having been represented by Imperial Cup hero Victram, as well as the promising novice hurdle winner Nictory Vote and last season's Cheltenham Champion Bumper ninth Pepe Simo, both trained by Paul Nicholls.

Kin Lundberg-Young, who owns Dairy House Stud with husband Robert, said: "Victory Note is an exciting addition to our stud. He was a high-classperformer himself, and has proved that he can sire high-class runners on the Flat.

"He has also done well in the National Hunt sphere, and I think it speaks volumes that Paul Nicholls has horses by him in his string."

She also had upbeat news about Crosspeace, who covered his second book of mares at Dairy House Stud this season.

"He was paid a huge compliment earlier this year," she said, "as he covered Irish Orchid, believed to be the last surviving sibling to the great Desert Orchid still being bred from."

Victory Note will stand as a dual-purpose sire at a fee of £1,750, with October 1 terms.
