Winner of the 2010 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (FR-I), Workforce is kissing the European grass goodbye for a less hectic life in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Royally bred and sure to land a high stud fee once he’s settled in for 2012, the son of King’s Best romped by a record 7 lengths in the prestigious Epsom Derby (IRE-I) in course record time for owner Juddmonte Farms. Finishing seven starts out of nine in the top two, he will stand at Shadai Farm in Japan.
I wonder if Workforce has the ability to be as big an influence in Japan as American horses like Sunday Silence and Silver Charm? Japan has some excellent horses standing there already, but this is one announcement their horse industry is bound to celebrate.
