Sir Prancealot retired to Tally-Ho Stud
THIS season's Flying Childers Stakes winner Sir Prancealot will begin his stallion career at Tony and Roger O'Callaghan's Tally-Ho Stud in County Westmeath next year after sustaining a training injury that has ended his racing career.
The son of leading first-season sire Tamayuz made six starts for trainer Richard Hannon and owner Andrew Tinkler. He also won the Listed National Stakes, finished second in the Prix Robert Papin and was fourth in the Coventry Stakes and Prix Morny.
Richard Hannon jnr said: "Sir Prancealot has a great attitude and an awful lot of ability and is a gentleman to deal with. It’s a great pity that his racing career has ended with a training injury, as his performance in the Flying Childers Stakes over 5f was a really stunning performance.
"He was brilliant at 5f and was undefeated at that trip. He’s a very good-looking, athletic individual with a high cruising speed”
Sir Prancealot was bred by Dermot Cantillon and Forenaghts Stud out of the Listed-winning Catrail mare Mona Em. He was bought by Peter and Ross Doyle for €140,000 from the 2011 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale, having been bought as a foal in the same ring by Gormanstown Stud for €52,000.
Sir Prancealot will stand at Tally-Ho alongside Baltic King, Bushranger, Kodiac and Zebedee.
