WITH the limited opportunities he has had to date, Finsceal Fior has certainly shown that he is well capable as a sire. Sadly he did not get an opportunity to race, and this was not ideal when he first went to stud.

On the plus side of things, he is bred in the purple, is a son of two champions, a half-brother to a Group 2 winner and his dam is a half-sister to another classic winner.
