What People Are Saying…

"You are unlikely to find newcomer to stud anywhere with a stronger pedigree”

James Thomas

"Decorated Knight standing at Irish National Stud - 3x Group 1 winner and top-class pedigree. Great value at €15 000”

Gary King

"In Decorated Knight the Irish National may just have clinched the deal of 2017. The horse has serious stallion credential; three-time Group 1 winning son of Galileo out of full sister to both Giant’s Causeway and You’resothrilling, who just happens to be the dam of Galileo's Group 1 winners Gleneagles, Marvellous and Happily. If that wasn’t enough Decorated Knight stands for covering fee of €15,000 - who says there is no value out there?

Daithi Harvey

"Decorated Knight is out of full sister to the teak tough Group 1 star and multiple US champion sire Giant’s causeway (by Storm Cat) and slso to sprinter and multiple Grade 1 sire Freud. Now the likelihood that he will sire at least a few Group 1 winners goes to odds on, making him one of the most exciting new recruits in recent years”

Dr Sieglinde McGee

"Decorated Knight hails from one of the best international stallion making pedigrees around’

"Two furlongs out I was very confident it was going to take a decent horse to beat him today. He’s very brave, he’s got a big heart”

Andrea Atzeni

"The Galileo - Storm cat cross has proved one of the most potent nicks of recent times having also been responsible for talents such as Churchill, Clemmie and Misty For Me - The Dam Of US Navy Flag and Roly Poly"

James Thomas

"Decorated Knight possesses a world-class pedigree, impressive acceleration, exceptional looks and performance.

He was a breathtaking winner of the Irish Champion Stakes"

Tony Nerses

"I knew how well Decorated Knight was travelling.He produced an amazing turn of foot and ran to the line. He’s so tough and to keep going all season is a tribute to this horse"
