Decorated Knight settling in well at the Irish National Stud
Decorated Knight looked a picture at the Irish National Stud on Thursday.
Part-owner Imad Al Sagar, who bred the colt with Saleh Al Homaizi, took time to visit his homebred multiple Group 1 winner, who will stand his first season at the Irish National for €15,000.
Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar bred Decorated Knight out of Pearling, a sister to champion American sire Giant’s Causeway bought by Tony Nerses at Tattersalls in December 2011.
Decorated Knight won eight races including the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes, in which he beat Churchill and Eminent, Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and Group 1 Jebel Hatta. The son of Galileo retires to stud as the earner of over £1.3 million.
