Windmill View Stud blows into the new season with Gladiatorus and Nocturnal Fox
Both sires available at €1,000 for 2021
Gladiatorus and Nocturnal Fox will continues their duties at €1,000 in 2021 at Windmill View Stud in Galway.
The former has had impressive results in Italy from small books of mares at Allevamento di Besnate, continuing when daughter Lucky Diva landed a newcomers' event in Naples on Monday.
Gladiatorus, a son of Silic from the family of Al Bahathri, began his career in Italy but is best remembered for a spectacular victory in the 2009 Dubai Duty Free at Nad Al Sheba.
He won a second Group 1 that October on his return to Italy, where he had scored six times as a juvenile, four of them at Listed level at distances varying from six furlongs to a mile.
He spent one season at Withyslade Farm in Britain before being purchased by John Lynch of Windmill View in Galway to cover mostly National Hunt mares last year.
Lynch said: "National Hunt mare owners love him, not just for his size and amount of bone, but he has a super temperament and is a glorious mover. His appearance matches his race record. He will put size and speed into his foals."
