The racehorse that was, and the super sire that is, KINGMAN needs no introduction. Outstanding in his Champion 3yo miler’s career, he’s just about the best young stallion out there. Read about him here:

Couple that with a Selkirk dam, who has already produced a 100 rated horse, from a family littered with Group 1 performers (the 2nd dam is the mighty MY BRANCH.) Two of the top seven Kingman progeny, are out of Selkirk mares: KING OF COMEDY and KINROSS, so that's a good 'nick' from a breeding perspective.

He possesses plenty of size and substance; he won’t just be a 2yo who doesn’t train on, given his imposing stature. In a market where the bidders were lining up left right and centre at Tattersalls, we were delighted to bring him in, precisely on the Kingman nomination budget at the time, of 100,000.

Initially he was a very pricey yearling by Middleham Park standards and, to be fair, it took us a while to work him out - he’s an out and out sprinter. For all that he’s quite ambivalent with regards to underfoot conditions, the fact that he revels in soft and heavy ground, affords him an unbelievable advantage over his rivals on those such days.

A strapping son of one of the World’s finest stallions, whose nomination price is set at £125,000 for 2024 and from one of Bjorn (Stradivarius) Nielsen’s finest families.

Racing update (March 27th): Already 2 from 2 in 2024, with a career best last time, who knows how high he can rank in the Sprint division? He hails from a Bjorn Nielsen family of blue bloods, so there could be no ceiling, given the right set of conditions. TIMEFORM RATED: 97. He is DECLARED for a £65k race at Lingfield on Good Friday and is going for the hat-trick. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
