E Dubai to shuttle to stud in Argentina

PENNSYLVANIA-based stallion E Dubai will stand his first season in the southern hemisphere this year when he shuttles to Argentinean stud La Mission.

The 13-year-old son of Mr Prospector was relocated from Darley’s Jonabell Farm in Kentucky to Tarry Bratton’s Ghost Ridge Farms in Pennsylvania for the current northern-hemisphere breeding season.

La Mission's managing director Nicolas Quintana said: “At La Mission we are proud to offer the very best stallions in the southern hemisphere and are delighted to have this sensational son of Mr. Prospector.”

E Dubai has sired 41 stakes performers, 21 of them stakes winners including Desert Code, Once More Dubai and Skysurfers. His progeny have earned in excess of $17.6 million in prize-money.

E Dubai won two Grade 2 races on the Belmont Park dirt – the O’Dwyer Stakes and Suburban Handicap – and also ran second in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes and Super Derby.

He is a half-brother to Del mar Oaks winner No Matter What, later dam of Fillies’ Mile and Matron Stakes scorer Rainbow View. His dam, stakes-winner Words Of War, is a sister to Miesque Stakes winner Ascutney, dam of Breeders’ Cup Classic hero and Kildangan Stud resident Raven’s Pass.
