Flag Of Honour to stand at National Stud in Newmarket
on 07 November 2019
A week after landing the speedy Advertise, the National Stud in Newmarket has added another Group 1 winner to its roster for 2020

FLAG Of Honour will stand as a National Hunt stallion at the National Stud in Newmarket next year.

The son of Galileo won the Group 1 Irish St Leger in 2018 for trainer Aidan O'Brien. He also won at Group 3 level as a juvenile and won the Group 2 Curragh Cup. This season he finished second to world-class stable companion Magical on three occasions.

At the National Stud he will stand alongside another new stallion recruit in Advertise. That three-time Group 1-winning sprinter was added to the roster a week ago. The stud also stands Aclaim, Rajasinghe and Time Test.

Flag Of Honour was rated 122 by Timeform after his classic win at the Curragh.

National Stud director Tim Lane said: "We are delighted to offer Flag Of Honour as a National Hunt prospect on behalf of Trevor Hemmings’ Gleadhill House Stud. He showed tremendous class, toughness and consistency throughout his career. We feel there is definitely a gap in the market in Britain for a horse of his calibre.”

Out of the winning mare Hawala, Flag Of Honour is a half-brother to Group 1-placed sprinter Air Chief Marshall and Irish 2000 Guineas runner-up Foxtrot Romeo. His fee has yet to be announced.
