Nicks & Breeding Recommendations


Brave Tin Soldier by Storm Cat

His pedigree spoke of Emperors and Excellence.
Now he’s doing exactly what it said on the ‘Tin’.

We've dubbed him the "4 B's". BIGBRAVEBRILLIANT and BRED.

BRILLIANT because he levelled a quality field over 6 furlongs at Stakes level as a 2YO in class record time.

BRAVE because his racing career was severely compromised by a stress fracture suffered in the French Guineas at 3. It plagued him until the end of his 4YO career, yet under the tutelage of Mike de Kock and John McVeighBRAVE TIN SOLDIER came back to display not only his courage but his class at 5, winning 3 races in Dubai and the United States, including an "impossible-come-from-behind" victory in the Cliff Hanger Stakes (Gr 3) in the United States.

BIG and beautiful enough to command a $3million price tag as a foal.

And finally, BRED, because he's the son of the world's most expensive stallion of the modern era, out of a Mr Prospector own sister to one of the Kentucky Derby's most famous winners in history. For good measure, his second dam is by the legend Danzig, while his third dam is the daughter of the Dual American sire, Halo. They don't come much better than this. And then you have to see him walk, that would explain why YouTube was so quick to post his effort in the Cliff Hanger.

Our panel of experts are able to provide a formal mating recommendation for all of Summerhill's resident stallions, embracing an evaluation of the physical compatibility of your mare with the stallion of your choice, an appraisal of relevant elements such as soundness, durability, speed, stamina, athleticism, temperament and courage a record of duplicated ancestors (and where applicable the reasons for duplicating) and the prospective matings aptitude profile.

Should you wish to avail yourself of this comprehensive service, please contact Stallion Bookings Manager, Linda Norval.
