Reliable Man | Alayna Cullen

MG1SW and Group 1 sire Reliable Man (GB) (Dalakhani {Ire}-On Fair Stage {Ire}, by Sadler's Wells) will return to Gestut Rottgen for the 2021 covering season, the German stud announced on Monday. The grey spent his first four years there, before standing for three years in France-a year at Haras du Thenney and two at Haras d'Annebault. A fee for the 12-year-old, who also shuttles to Westbury Stud in New Zealand, will be announced later.

A winner of the G1 Prix du Jockey Club and the G1 Queen Elizabeth S. in 2011 and 2013, respectively, the N. P. Bloodstock-bred has sired 13 black-type winners, seven at the group level, to date, including G1 VRC Oaks winner Miami Bound (NZ), G1 New Zealand Oaks heroine Miss Sentimental (NZ), and German group winners Akribie (Ger), Narella (Ire), and Erasmus (Ger).

“'We look forward to welcoming Reliable Man back to Röttgen,” stud manager Frank Dorff commented. “We shall certainly continue to support him with some of our best mares. In his first three years here we bred three group winners and a listed winner from only 13 foals. He consistently produces good looking, correct horses and they are able to run at two and then compete in the best races from 2000m-2400m at three.”
