Equiano, the dual Royal Ascot G1 Winner, will repatriate to the Irish National Stud for 2021, to continue his highly successful stud career.
Equiano is a prolific source of high-class racehorses with 30 Graded stakes performers to date, including the triple Group 1 winner, The Tin Man and the Group 1 Breeder’s Cup Sprint and multiple Graded stakes winner Belvoir Bay. He is the highest rated son from the exciting Acclamation sire-line of Dark Angel and first season champion Mehmas at stud.
Cathal Beale, INS CEO said, “we are delighted to offer Equiano to the Irish market at a time when solid, proven speed influences are ever more valued by breeders. He is an imposing individual with a great walk and being completely free of Sadler’s Wells and Danzig blood, he is a great outcross option. Standing alongside Invincible Spirit, Equiano’s addition to our roster will mean we can offer Irish breeders two of the most prolific sources of speed available in Europe.”
