Irish-Indian connection pays dividends; Sohna Stud shines

  1. Another filly vs. colt showdown in an exotic foriegn land. I am so tuning in this Sunday!

    I wonder how English Channel’s full brother Siegfield is doing in India?

    Another bonus for those doing business with India’s racing and bloodstock scene in person- medical tourism while you’re there! Honestly, the more tapped in segment of our society can take advantage of everything from India’s expertise in heart work to ultra cheap braces and dental. Distant shores may offer hopes of maintaining medical freedom along with further expanding ties with their breeding operations.

  3. A good list. Just the other day it seemed Phoenix Tower was starting a comeback, after being retired to stud, how thing’s change. We’ll have some of his foals here in the US too at least.
    Sid, you might want to check out Zipseatthetrack’s blog about the infancy of horse racing in Belize.

  4. Sid,

    That list clears up the whereabouts of a couple of good old horses, such as major winner Tejano and English Derby winner Oath.

    Very interesting ….


  5. Oath was previously in Japan before returning to the UK and then being bought by Rajendra Singh Idar for his Pratap Stud in Himmatnagar.

  6. Sohna Stud farm!!

    What a wonderful powerpacked producers of horses. Thanks a ton for Jacqueline who proved that history is there to be beaten.

    Please send me any information about upbringing of Jacqueline and other horses to look out for in the coming seasons.

    Thanks again!!
