WHEN Douvan won the 2015 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle it was the first time that racing and breeding fans really started to take note of his sire, Walk In The Park. Later that year another of his sons, Min, started to make an impression in novice hurdles.

In January 2016, Coolmore Stud announced it had acquired the son of Montjeu from France for stallion duties at Grange Stud. Since then, the Walk In The Park success story has developed at a rapid pace, both on the racecourse and in the sales ring, with more Cheltenham success provided by his sons Jonbon and Facile Vega.
