Irish 2,000 Guineas Winner Native Trail To Stand At Kildangan Stud

Native Trail | Tattersalls

Irish 2,000 Guineas winner and unbeaten European Champion Two-Year-Old Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) will stand at Kildangan Stud for 2024. 

Trained by Charlie Appleby, Native Trail carried the Godolphin blue throughout his career, which featured a stellar unbeaten juvenile campaign in 2021 which culminated with spellbinding performances in the G1 Goffs Vincent O'Brien S at the Curragh followed by the G1 Dewhurst S. at Newmarket. 

After landing the G3 Craven S. on his seasonal return at three, he found only stablemate Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) too tough in the 2,000 Guineas, but made the Classic breakthrough in the Irish equivalent. 

Sam Bullard, Darley's director of stallions, commented, “What a horse. He never failed to take the eye, and when you watch those big wins of his, across two demanding seasons, it's very impressive.”

He added, “We are privileged to be standing a champion like him at Kildangan Stud. It's a while since our first Champion Two-Year-Old who went on to win a Classic retired to stud at Kildangan; that horse was Shamardal, and who's to say Native Trail won't do just as well?”
