WHAT might Delegator have achieved had he lived beyond the age of 10? Based at Overbury Stud for each of his four years at stud, his final crop are just two-year-olds. Though he failed to attract decent-sized books of mares, he has a record that few sires achieve in a lifetime. He is the sire of a Group 1 winner on the flat and a Grade 1 winner over jumps.

On the level his son Accidental Agent won the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, while it is another from that same initial crop by Delegator, Cornerstone Lad, who has become his star performer over jumps.
