Owned by Maria Westmann, Charming Knight is the first foal out of the BDS-bred Charming Loza, a Lawman half-sister to the stakes-placed Bournemouth Belle. Further back, it is the family of Classic winner Just The Judge.

Decorated Knight made a brilliant start to his stud career when his very first runner, Silver Bullet Lady, made a winning debut in a hot conditions race at Salisbury for Roger Charlton.

Another daughter, Dominanta, is a winner in Poland.

A select group of first runners also includes the placed fillies Lady Fantasia and Mezannotte.

There are plenty of well regarded two-year-olds waiting in the pipeline as well. John Gosden’s yard houses Sobegrand, a half-brother to Group 2 winner Aljazzi, Damaar, a relation to Order Of St George, and a colt out of the Group 1 two-year-old Princess Noor.

Roger Charlton also trains Amjad, a colt out of Group 3-winning two-year-old Shaden, in addition to Silver Bullet Lady while Roger Varian trains Kind Gesture, a filly out of our Group 1 performer Dawn Of Hope.

Decorated Knight two-year-olds are also in the yards of Marco Botti, Sir Mark Prescott and Mark Johnston.

Decorated Knight was a brilliant multiple Group 1 winner who enjoyed his finest moments when successful in the Irish Champion Stakes, in which he beat a star studded field, Tattersalls Gold Cup and Dubai Sheema Classic.

He is also beautifully bred as a Galileo son of Pearling, a sister to multiple champion sire Giant’s Causeway.
