So why the mention of Starynessey? Starynessey has been retired to the Pratap Stud Farm which is now the home of the Epsom Derby winner Oath (by Fairy King) whom she visited for the 2008 season. Starynessey is by the Nureyev horse Concordial. This mating combines Nureyev and Fairy King(sire of Oath) who is a full brother to Sadlers Wells resulting in a 2x3 inbreeding to three parts brothers Nureyev and Fairy King. As in the case of Henrythenavigator, we also find balanced linebreeding to Native Dancer.
After the phenomenal success of Henrythenavigator, and the highly successful sons of Fairy King in India, namely Royal Kingdom and Burden of Proof, Gainsville eagerly awaits the produce of this mating to come into training.
