Hey Gaman, the Group 3 winning son of New Approach who finished a neck second in the French 2,000 Guineas, has retired from racing and will stand at Haras du Taillis.

Owned and bred by Sultan Ali from his Dubawi mare Arsaadi (which is the same Galileo – Dubawi cross as exciting new sire Night Of Thunder), this tough genuine colt showed consistent high-class form for three seasons.

As a juvenile, he won three times including the Listed Denford Stakes as well as finishing second in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.  As a three year-old, the highlight of his season was finishing a neck second behind Olmedo in the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains at Longchamp.  Then at four he won the Listed King Richard III Stakes and the Group 3 Prix du Palais-Royal before finishing second to Romanised and Sir Dancealot in the Group 2 Minstrel and Lennox Stakes.

The five-year-old will stand for a fee of just €2,250 at Haras du Taillis, which looks very competitively priced.  Hopefully his offspring will inherit his both ability and his attitude!
