Frankie Dettori after partnering Calyx to a runaway success in the Commonwealth Cup Trial- Gr.3 at Ascot

“For me Calyx is one of the most exciting young sires to go to stud this year... Speed is the Holy Grail and he’s got this in abundance. He was an unbelievably talented horse with a lot of speed... Myself and my clients we’ve sent 5 mares to him... I think down in Australia he’s going to really take off because not only was he a very good 2-year-old, he’s got a lot of speed and he’s a very good-looking horse and he looks like a sprinter.” Leading bloodstock agent Hubie de Burgh

Time to lead.

On the field of battle Winston Churchill distinguished himself as an officer. His equine namesake did likewise, becoming a Champion 2YO and a dual Classic winner. Then in his second career, as a politician, he was Prime Minister when leading Britain to victory in World War II. Our Churchill is in his second career and it could now be his time to lead, as a sire. He has what it takes. He’s one of the very best sons of the world’s best sire Galileo .


“A five-time stakes winner at two, Churchill is the fastest and most precocious Danehill ( Danzig ) outcross son of Galileo and he added to his success as a juvenile by winning both the British and Irish 2,000 Guineas as a three-year-old”

❝ Churchill was a good winner of the 2000 Guineas...and his two-year old achievements, including a Royal Ascot win and two Gr.1s, will add to his appeal to commercial breeders who look certain to give him strong support in an era when the fashion in the stallion market is for sires likely to produce winning two-year-olds and sprinter/milers. ~ Timeform Racehorses of 2017 [His fee] seems generous for a horse with Churchill’s pedigree and credentials and he is certainly among the better racehorses to shuttle here. “ “ CHURCHILL was a very impressive winner of two important sire-making races, the

Mark Bird, Irish Turf Club Handicapper and delegate at the European two-year-old meeting, said: “… the progressive nature of his form allied to his obvious physical scope and impressive pedigree give rise to hope that his early career may be just the launch pad to greater success as a three-year-old.

… Recently, he continued to assert his dominance when Sherwood Forest became the 38th Group 1 winner worldwide [in the New Zealand Derby] for the powerhouse stallion… thus edging his sire one clear of Redoute’s Choice in the battle to become the most prolific international source of Group 1 winners by the great Danehill. Moreover, it looks like an honour he’s unlikely to relinquish given that he has plenty of young stock in the pipeline... … just like his brilliant sire Danehill , who produced Group 1 winners from 1200 metres to 3200 metres, Fastnet Rock can provide class at a variety of distances, something many other sires simply could not manage. … His 117 Southern Hemisphere stakes winners puts him in fifth place on the all-time leader board among Australian sires and he’s the most accomplished stallion in this regard standing in Australia today. His 76 Australian-conceived Group winners have been produced at a rate of 5.7 per cent to runners, which is ahead of expectations, given the quality of mares he’s been bred to. Likewise, his 7.6 per cent of Group winners from elite mares is comfortably ahead of what they have achieved with other sires – a sure sign of a dominant stallion. … All of the above should also be considered in the light of the fact that he’s by Danehill and therefore unable to access hundreds of stakes-winning mares carrying Danehill blood. … His sire sons Hinchinbrook, Smart Missile and Foxwedge have all had success at stud. Perhaps a so-far-unproven candidate, like Merchant Navy … can go some way to matching their sire’s outstanding achievements. John Boyce , 11th March 2020 Fastnet’s continued success


JUST unbeatable on the track JUST a great physical specimen The only American Triple Crown winner to retire to stud undefeated. 6 wins (4 Gr.1s) by nearly 24 lengths and earnings of nearly US$3,800,000. JUST a world-class sire prospect It would entail a lengthy search to find a better representative of the Thoroughbred breed… Justify exudes power… In action, he brings the entire package: speed, stride, and stamina.

He was so much the best in winning the Derby it was ridiculous. He disputed a very fast pace on a sloppy, unbiased surface, and three of the four horses who were involved with him early finished a badly beaten 12 th , 13 th and 15 th . Yet despite being under that sort of severe early pace pressure, he still drew away from his field through the stretch. “ “ Mike Watchmaker ,

A lasting imprint.

Magna Grecia was the name given by the Romans to the coastal areas of Southern Italy extensively populated by Greek settlers who began arriving in the 8th century BC. They brought with them their Hellenic civilization which was to leave a lasting imprint on Italy.

Just like his paternal half-brother, I Am Invincible, he could have a lasting influence too!

The perfect blend.

On the track he was a Gr.1-winning 3YO sprinter, just like his sire Fastnet Rock and grandsire Danehill . In fact he was a Gr.1-winning sprinter in Australia, and then, despite unfavourable weight-for-age terms, at Royal Ascot. He’s definitely Fastnet Rock’s fastest son and is bred on the same Danehill / Snippets cross as Snitzel and Hinchinbrook .

That’s a lot of sire potential to blend with your mare!

THE win of the Spring Carnival – simply awesome Tony Thomas , The Sportsman, after the Coolmore Stud Stakes- Gr.1

“… the time beat the standard by half a second… Still classed as a 3YO in the southern hemisphere, he has now won at the top level in both Australia and England and will be a hugely valuable stallion prospect. ” RACING P O ST , after the Diamond Jubilee Stakes- Gr.1 Gr.2 winner ADRIFT was purchased in foal to him at the 2020 Inglis Chairman’s Sale by Belmont Bloodstock, on behalf of Fairway Thoroughbreds, for $700,000 .

“Outstanding Fastnet Rock colt Merchant Navy left Australia earlier this year as the best three year-old sprinter in the country and is now one of the best in the world after capturing the Group I Diamond Jubilee Stakes (6f) at Royal Ascot overnight for Coolmore.” Despite being weighted as a northern hemisphere 4YO while still being a southern hemisphere 3YO Merchant Navy shows his class and toughness to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes-Gr.1 at Royal Ascot in a fast time. It’s no surprise then that Timeform rated him 126 .

I am sending Delaluna back to Merchant Navy this season along with her half-sister Miss Marilyn. I am very excited with Merchant Navy’s prospects for the future.” Senga Bissett , Ashleigh Thoroughbreds

Filly ex. Blue Sky Baby , owned by Denis and Claire O’Brien

The Cornish family and I have always been huge fans of Merchant Navy, and we sent a vast array of mares by sires that included Stravinsky, Street Cry and High Chaparral. Our first crop has not disappointed and the quality we have on the ground has exceeded expectation, especially from our maiden mares. We are going to send another group of quality mares to him this season. Melissa Copelin , Stud Manager at Torryburn Stud

In fact, you could say that Danehill set the standard: his stock won Group 1s from 1000 metres to 3200 metres. In Pierro , Australia has found another such sire. Even though it's near impossible to match Danehill’s exploits, the fact that his stock are showing a similar versatility will stand him in good stead. Pierro, the sire flying high

A major indicator

This century has seen the likes of General Nediym , Redoute’s Choice , More Than Ready , Choisir , Exceed And Excel , Stratum , Written Tycoon , Northern Meteor and I Am Invincible all become the Leading First Crop Sire in Australia. More recently, the table has been topped by Hinchinbrook , Zoustar and a certain Pierro . In other words it’s a major indicator for long-term sire success.
