The winner of the 150th Melbourne Cup achieved a Timeform rating of 127 before embarking on his stallion career in Calumet farm.
Calumet owner Mr. Brad Kelley who will strongly support the highest earning son of Dynaformer said ‘This world champion will produce champions and we want him to become a world class sire’.
John Osborne said ‘the handsome Americain will be popular on looks alone and his first foals have his strength and quality. He will bring balance to our roster which is dominated by speed influences. Americain’s pedigree has class in every generation and his sire was revered in America and a classic sire in Europe. Americain can emulate that given the support his race record deserves. Mr. Kelley will be keen to race his stock.
Americain will stand at €5,000.
