Resplendent Glory to Walton Fields Stud

RESPLENDENT GLORY, the Group 3-winning sprinter, will stand at Walton Fields Stud in Leicestershire next season at a fee of £2,000. The son of Namid stood his first three seasons at Benson Stud.

Purchased by John Warren as a yearling for 120,000gns and trained by Terry Mills, Resplendent Glory won six of his seven races as a three-year-old over five and six furlongs.

Unfortunately, his career was shortened by injury, and on his only two outings as a four-year-old he was unable to show his true form.

His first crop will hit the track next year.

Wayne Hutchinson, owner of Walton Fields, said: "He's a nice, strong, powerful sprinting type and would have gone on to better things if it wasn't for his injury. He has a good temperament and has a good number of two-year-olds going into training for 2010. He has been well-supported by his owners."

Resplendent Glory will be joined by another new addition to the Walton Fields ranks inGrade 1 winner Prince Arch, another whose first crop will race next year. They will stand alongside with FirstTrump, Shahrastani and Samraan.

Former Walton Fields resident Deportivo, whose best produce to date is the Listed-winning juvenile Senor Mirasol, has completed his move to France where he will stand at Haras des Faunes at a fee of €2,200. The Group 2-winning sprinter will replace the recently deceased Indian Rocket at the stud.

Deportivo's first crop, which also includes Senor Mirasol as well as the multiple winners Taurus Twins and Shadow Bay, will turn four next year.
