First mares confirmed in foal for Derrinstown's King Of Change
The son of Farhh struck in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day
Queen Elizabeth II Stakes winner and Derrinstown Stud's newest recruit King Of Change has had his first mares confirmed in foal.
The son of Farhh, who enjoyed his finest hour when defeating a host of big names in the mile showpiece at Ascot on Champions Day in 2019, is standing his first season at the County Kildare operation for a fee of €7,000.
Among the mares confirmed in foal to the five-year-old are Table Forty Six, a seven-time winner who is out of Tashreefat - a Danehill half-sister to Listed scorer and Oaks third Mezzogiorno - and Ramamara, a dual winner and half-sister to the winning and stakes-placed Trinity.
King Of Change, who was bred by Rabbah Bloodstock, also finished runner-up to Magna Grecia in the 2,000 Guineas.
He is a half-brother to high-class miler Century Dream - who was third in the QEII in 2018 and landed the Group 2 Celebration Mile Stakes at Goodwood last term - and two further winners.
The Richard Hannon-trained colt also struck in the Listed Fortune Stakes at Sandown and finished in the first two on all six career starts.
