Group 1 Winner Triple Time Retired to Dalham Hall Stud

Neil Callan celebrates Triple Time's Queen Anne victory at Royal Ascot | Racingfotos

G1 Queen Anne S. winner Triple Time (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) is to join the Darley roster at Dalham Hall Stud from 2024.

Trained by Kevin Ryan, the four-year-old won four of his eight starts, including striking twice at two when he broke his maiden by nine and a half lengths and went on to win the Listed Ascendant S. at Haydock. 

Missing out on the following year's Classics with a setback, Triple Time returned in September to land the G3 Superior Mile, and posted his best performance this year, again on his seasonal debut, when beating Inspiral (GB) at Royal Ascot in the Queen Anne.

Bred by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, he is one of seven black-type performers and six black-type winners for the remarkable Mark Of Esteem (Ire) mare Reem Three (GB), herself a Listed-placed treble winner who was rated 97. Triple Time's half-siblings include the Gi Prix Jean Romanet winner Ajman Princess (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) and G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein winner Ostilio (GB) (New Approach {Ire}). The family has been boosted further still this season by the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere winner Rosallion (Ire), who is by Darley's first-season sire Blue Point (Ire) and out of Rosaline (Ire), a full-sister to Ostilio.

Sam Bullard, Darley's director of stallions, said, “Triple Time's victory in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot was the pinnacle of a superb career for this impeccably bred horse. He is from a truly outstanding female family and being an elite miler by Frankel, we think he will be very popular with breeders. We look forward to showing him at Dalham in the very near future.”
