BLUE POINT TO STAND AT KILDANGAN STUD

BLUE POINT TO STAND AT KILDANGAN STUD

Blue Point, who was retired last month after taking Royal Ascot by storm with two Group 1 sprint victories, is to commence his stallion career at Darley’s Kildangan Stud in County Kildare next year.

It had initially been stated that the son of Shamardal would stand at the operation’s Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket, but it was confirmed at Darley’s annual stallion parade on Thursday that he would in fact take up covering duty alongside his sire in Ireland, rather than in Britain.

An 11-time winner, Blue Point is poised to join another son of Shamardal on the Kildangan Stud roster, in French Navy, as well as a champion son of Lope De Vega in Belardo.
