Star stayer Subjectivist (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}–Reckoning {Ire}, by Danehill Dancer {Ire}) will stand at Alne Park Stud in 2024, the stud posted on X. The two-time Group 1 winner's fee will be £4,000.

Alne Park Stud director Grace Skelton, wife of National Hunt trainer Dan Skelton, said, “The addition of Subjectivist to our stallion roster is a huge leap forward for Alne Park Stud. To stand a stallion of this calibre is an immense honour.

“We firmly believe that keeping this exceptional stallion in the UK is a real boost to British breeders and we hope that he will see plenty of support in his debut season.”

Bred by Mascalls Stud, he was purchased for Marc Chan by former trainer Mark Johnston for 62,000gns out of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. A juvenile winner, his 3-year-old season was highlighted by a score in the G3 March S. at Goodwood prior to winning the G1 Prix Royal-Oak later that year. He resumed at four with a tally in the G2 Dubai Gold Cup and delivered a tour de force in the G1 Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in 2021. Returning to the racecourse this year after recovering from a tendon injury, he made three starts, with his two final starts resulting in a pair of thirds in the Dubai Gold Cup in March and the Gold Cup at Ascot in June for Mark's son Charlie. Subjectivist's record stands at 20-6-4-4 and $1,191,024 in earnings. He was retired earlier this year after his Royal Ascot run.

Mark Johnston added, “I always say that, when placing horses, the opposition trumps all other factors. But, very rarely, you come across a horse where the opposition isn't a factor at all. Subjectivist was such a horse.

“In 2021, I truly believed that there wasn't a horse in the world that could beat him at two miles or more, in any ground.”

Out of a multiple stakes-placed half-sister to GIII My Charmer H. second Hope Cross (Ire) (Cape Cross {Ire}), Subjectivist is a half-brother to multiple group winner Sir Ron Priestley (GB) (Australia {GB}) who was second in the G1 St Leger and third in the G1 Goodwood Cup; and G2 Rockfel S. third Alba Rose (GB) (Muhaarar {GB}).
