Blue-blooded Rich History to stand at Kedrah House Stud as a dual-purpose sire
The son of Dubawi is out of Moyglare Stud's brilliant producer Polished Gem
The regally bred Rich History has been bought to stand as a dual-purpose sire at Kedrah House Stud in south Tipperary, joining a roster that includes Well Chosen and Berkshire.
Rich History was bred by Moyglare Stud Farm and is out of the operation's superstar producer Polished Gem, making the son of Dubawi a half-brother to Prince of Wales's Stakes scorer and Irish National Stud sire Free Eagle, plus the two-time Irish St Leger heroine Search For A Song,
He is also a half-brother to the prolific multiple Group-winning Custom Cut, Group 2 winner Sapphire, the Listed-winning Chester Cup scorer Falcon Eight plus stakes scorer and Blandford Stakes runner-up Amma Grace and Australian Group 3 winner Valac.
Another half-sibling in the lightly raced four-year-old Kyprios, Moyglare's dual winning son of Galileo who reportedly stays in training with Aidan O'Brien.
The eight-year-old Rich History initially raced for Dermot Weld before being sold to the Middle East, where he acquitted himself well for owner Hamad Ahmed Hassan Al Malki Al Jehani.
Tom Meagher of Kedrah House Stud said: "We are delighted that Rich History is joining Well Chosen and Berkshire. He was acquired from the Middle East, where he won twice and was placed 11 times, but it is his unique pedigree that makes him such an ideal stallion.
"Rich History is a big 16.2 hands, very-good looking, athletic horse. His pedigree has incredible depth, being out of Moyglare's Danehill blue hen Polished Gem and a son of the world's leading sire Dubawi. This surely makes him the most desirable dual-purpose stallion standing for this first season at the reasonable introductory fee of €3,500."
Rich History will be available to view for breeders at the ITM Irish Stallion Trail, which takes place on Friday and Saturday. Kedrah House is due to open on Saturday from 11am to 3pm.
