THERE are few guarantees in life, but it is hard to imagine Gleneagles failing to become the sire of at least a few Group 1 winners. He was a top-class performer at both two and three years of age – which attracts breeder support – he is a son of the greatest living European stallion who has a double-digit tally of sons with at least one top-level to their name, and he is out of a talented full-sister to a multiple champion sire.
