WHAT a wonderful start to his stud career for Night Of Thunder, the 2000 Guineas hero of 2014 who began his career at Dalham Hall and now stands at Kildangan. He ended 2019 as the champion first crop sire in Europe by earnings and by races won, with 28 winners of 45 races and over €1,000,000 from 48 runners.

He sired three group stars with Night Colours in the Group 2 Premio Dormello in Milan, Pocket Square in the Group 3 Prix des Reservoirs at Deauville and Under The Stars in the Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot.
