Who is he?


He was the last reported son of Northern Dancer still standing at stud - a G3 winner. Here's the link from The Bloodhorse:

England needs Leroi badly. I dont see how they arent already backed into a corner with inbreeding.

I agree with you, Calypso, that Leroi' will now get a better book of mares in England than he was getting in Florida. I just wish that he had been supported like that here. Tough being a "grass" sire in the States, and I guess even siring a Derby winner didn't change that perception of him.

I'm still shocked and amazed that El Prado ever got enough mares to prove he was worth the shot in Ky. An Irish bred, turf raced son of Sadler's Wells.....

Just imagine what some other stallions may have done given a slightly better chance.

I don't think North Light or Silent Name got enough of a shot in KY. Silent Name did race in the US, though. But he's doing well as a sire in Canada, so perhaps he's where he belongs. And he's not particularly good looking :D North Light, on the other hand, is gorgeous.

Has he lost a bit of weight?

I just posted the picture to some friends along with saying that he looks better weight-wise than I've seen in years... Sure wish he was still breeding, especially with the loss of Pulpit...

Reliable Man(GB), G1 winner in both hemispheres, will shuttle from New Zealand to Germany next year.
He is a fine-looking grey horse.
