UK Gr1 Star Silver Patriarch Retired From Stud Duty
In the UK overnight, the National Stud announced triple Gr1-winning 15-year-old stallion Silver Patriarch (Sadler's Wells-Early Rising, by Grey Dawn) has been withdrawn from covering duties "due to declining fertility". Silver Patriarch has been standing at Bill Bromley's Wood Farm Stud in Shropshire for the last 2 seasons. On the track, Silver Patriarch notched 8 wins (including 1997's UK Gr1 St Leger & both 1998's UK Gr1 Coronation Cup & Italian Gr1 Gran Premio del Jockey Club, plus runner-up in 1997's Gr1 English Derby) from 24 starts.
