Reliable Man | Alayna Cullen

Group 1 winners Reliable Man (GB) and Protectionist (Ger) will each be available at Gestut Roettgen in 2021 for €6,500 free return.

Reliable Man returns to Roettgen after two years in France. In four years with runners Reliable Man has left 22 stakes winners, headed by the Southern Hemisphere Group 1 winners Miami Bound (NZ) and Miss Sentimental (NZ). His best Northern Hemisphere runners is the G2 Diana Trial scorer Hypnos (Ger).

Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist is the sire of two stakes-placed horses from his first crop of 2-year-olds this year, headed by the G3 Preis der Winterkonigin third and Winterkonigin Trial second Amazing Grace (Ger).

Multiple group winner Millowitsch (Ger) (Sehrezad {Ire}) stands his second season for €1,111.

“We are delighted to welcome back Reliable Man and look forward to seeing his 94 2-year-olds, by far his biggest crop to date, run for him next year,” said Roettgen Manager Frank Dorff. “Protectionist’s first 2-year-olds have shown great promise and should be a different proposition as 3-year-olds. We believe Millowitsch offers breeders both an outcross and a horse who had real speed and was a consistent group performer through three seasons. Roettgen will be supporting all three of our stallions in 2021 with our own mares.”
