OLD Persian has been acquired by Rathbarry and Glenview Studs for stallion duties. The son of Dubawi won almost €4 million in a career that saw him win at the highest level in Dubai and Canada, as well as winning at Royal Ascot.
Following a deal brokered by Stroud Coleman Bloodstock, Old Persian will join the National Hunt roster of Blue Bresil, Malinas, Shirocco, Sholokhov and Youmzain.
Paul Cashman of Rathbarry and Glenview said: “Old Persian is an outstanding looking individual with plenty of size and substance. He will be an exciting prospect for National Hunt breeders.”
