State Of Rest | Scoop Dyga

Four-time Group 1 winner State Of Rest will stand for €25,000 in his debut season at Rathbarry Stud. He will also cover in the southern hemisphere at Henry Field's Newgate Stud. 

The Starspangledbanner (Aus) colt, who was bred by Tinnakill Bloodstock, won three Group/Grade 1 contests in as many different continents under the management of Joseph O'Brien. 

State Of Rest opened his account at the highest level when storming to Saratoga Derby glory in New York last year. He confirmed his reputation as a globetrotting superstar when taking the Cox Plate as a three-year-old.

Closer to home, he returned as a four-year-old to win the Prix Ganay at ParisLongchamp before beating Bay Bridge (GB) (New Bay {GB}) in the Prince Of Wales's S. at Royal Ascot. 

The five-time winner has been introduced at just €2,500 less than Acclamation (GB), who will lead the way at the County Cork stud once again at €27,500.

The son of Royal Applause (GB) has been a fantastic servant at Rathbarry Stud and has produced a number of high-class horses, including Dark Angel (Ire), Mehmas (Ire) Aclaim (Ire), Expert Eye (GB) and Equiano (Fr).

Heading the supporting cast is Kodi Bear (Ire), who will command the same fee as last year at €15,000, while James Garfield will stand for €4,000.
