Sweet Gentle Kiss also has a yearling colt by Camelot and is slated to visit Study Of Man.

Decorated Knight‘s first crop are two-year-olds and are already the subject of encouraging reports. He is represented in some of Europe’s top yards, notably John Gosden, Roger Varian, Roger Charlton, Marco Botti, Mark Johnston and Sir Mark Prescott.

An outstanding performer gifted with a brilliant turn of foot, Decorated Knight‘s career included three Group 1 victories – the Irish Champion Stakes, Jebel Hatta and Tattersalls Gold Cup.

He is also beautifully bred as a Galileo relation to three-time American champion sire Giant’s Causeway.

Decorated Knight stands at the Irish National Stud for €7,500 and anyone using him this season is entitled to a free nomination for 2022.
