Kingsbarns To Stand In South Africa
Gr1 winner winner Kingsbarns (Galileo-Beltisaal, by Belmez) has been sold to Drakenstein Stud in South Africa to stand alongside fellow former Coolmore sire Duke Of Marmalade, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. "It's extremely exciting for us and the South African breeding industry to be standing the first Group 1-winning son of Galileo," said Drakenstein Stud's Kevin Sommerville. Trained by Aidan O'Brien, Kingsbarns won 2 of his 8 career starts, including the Gr1 Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster, and was also placed behind Olympic Glory in the Gr1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot.
