Sales-topping Galileo son to stand in Limerick
on 12 May 2017
Hydrogen, a three-parts brother to Authorized, will stand at Ringwood Stud

HYDROGEN, a three-parts brother to the Derby winner and successful sire Authorized, has been retired to stand at Ringwood Stud, Co Limerick.

A son of Galileo, Hydrogen was handsome enough to be the highest priced yearling in the world in 2012 when sold at Tattersalls for 2.5 million guineas to Qatar Racing.

Put into training with Authorized’s trainer, Peter Chapple-Hyam, an injury as a two-year-old robbed him of the chance to show his true worth on the track.

His three-parts brother Authorized has established himself as a successful and versatile stallion. His progeny include Hartnell, multiple Group 1 winner in Australia, the Group 1 winning fillies Ambivalent and Seal Of Approval, and Grade 1 winning hurdler Nichols Canyon.

Authorized was responsible for another Cheltenham Festival winner in Tiger Roll, winner of the Grade 2 National Hunt Chase, and his other jumps winners include Zubayr, a short-head runner-up in the Grade 2 Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr.

Peter Leonard, owner and manager of Ringwood Stud in Newcastle West, said: “One would be optimistic that Hydrogen will appeal to breeders, being a son of Galileo and so closely related to a successful sire in Authorized, especially in light of his success under both codes at stud. It is clear Hydrogen has a good temperament too,.”

Hydrogen’s stud fee is available from Peter Leonard of Ringwood Stud (087 2631337) or Peter Molony of Qatar Racing (086 8238611).
