Trained by David Wachman, He's A Decoy captured his first two starts including the Listed Rochestown Stakes by five lengths.

Despite never standing for more than €8,500, He's A Decoy's half-brother Danetime sired seven Group 1 performers during a truncated stud career including last season's Middle Park Stakes and Prix Morny hero Bushranger.
