This just in from our man in Argentina, Diego Mitagstein: Darley will shuttle King’s Best from Haras du Logis in Normandy, France, to Damasia Lottero’s and Pablo Zabaleta’s Haras Vacacion in San Antonio de Areca, Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the 2009 Southern Hemisphere season. The horse made the same trip to the same farm for the 2007 SH season.
The 2000 Guineas winner in 2000, King’s Best is a 12-year-old son of Kingmambo from Allegretta, by Lombard. His half-sister, Arc winner Urban Sea, is the dam of this season’s 2000 Guineas winner Sea the Stars and Epsom Derby and Irish Derby winner Galileo, one of the best young stallions in Europe.
King’s Best is the sire of 25 black type winners, including 14 group winners. His three Group 1 winners are Creachadoir, Dubai Surprise, and Proclamation. He stands for 15,000 Euros in France.
