Territories New For Dalham Hall


Darley's Dalham Hall stallion roster for 2017 will include the former Andre Fabre trained Territories (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}–Taranto {GB}, by Machiavellian). A limited number of lifetime breeding rights will be sold in the 4-year-old, who won the G1 Prix Jean Prat in 2015 and was also second to Gleneagles (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in the G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Homebred by Darley, Territories is from the immediate family of Darley success stories Shamardal (Giant's Causeway) and Street Cry (Ire) (Machiavellian).

Sam Bullard, Director of Darley stallions, said, “Territories proved himself to be a miler right out of the top drawer with that impressive victory in the G1 Prix Jean Prat, as well as finishing best of all to take second in the 2000 Guineas. His juvenile form, too, was high class.”

Bullard continued, “He is a good-looking horse, very typical of the speedy Green Desert line, with a great walk. His sire Invincible Spirit has made a real impact on the breed, and Territories' relations Shamardal and Street Cry have been wonderful servants both to breeders and to Darley. He has a bright future and we are delighted to be able to offer breeders the opportunity to purchase lifetime breeding rights in him.”

A fee for Territories will be announced at a later date.
