  1. John Clarke, director of the Irish National Stud, emailed me with a poignant comment about the stallion: “. . . his biggest plus is that the trainers love his produce as they are so honest.

    European pedigree consultant Clive Webb-Carter tweeted another important 2009 fact that puts the success of Verglas vs. price in context. Clive said: “Verglas sired 4 Eur 2yo SWs. Only Oasis Dream sired more with 5. Galileo, Danehill Dancer & Invincible Spirit also had 4 SWs!”

  2. He is a very interesting stallion, as he responds very well to one or two specific ancestor groupings or “units” which have become very pervasive in the modern thoroughbred.

    I did an in depth study on him a while ago

    and he’s added some more stakes winners since, most of which had the same strains prominent in their pedigree. With his affinities so marked he could do very well over the next few years.
