International star Sulamani, who exited racing with a score in the Oct. 24 Pattison Canadian International Stakes (Can-IT), will enter stud at Dalham Hall Stud near Newmarket, England. Dalham Hall, which is operated under the direction of Sheikh Mohammed's Darley, will stand for £7,000 ($12,800). Sheikh Mohammed raced Sulamani in the Godolphin silks after purchasing the son of Hernando following his 3-year-old campaign in 2002.
Bred by the Niarchos Family, Sulamani won major events in all five of the countries in which he raced. He not only won the Pattison Canadian International, but also the Arlington Million (gr. IT, after a disqualification), Turf Classic Invitational Stakes (gr. IT), Juddmonte International Stakes (Eng-I), Prix du Jockey-Club (Fr-I, the French Derby), and Dubai Sheema Classic (UAE-I).
A champion in France and Dubai, 5-year-old Sulamani retired with nine wins from 17 starts and earnings of $5,252,368. He is a half-brother to Irish champion Dream Well, and is out of the Alleged mare Soul Dream.
Darley also announced a fee of £25,000 ($45,800) for Red Ransom and one of £20,000 ($36,500) for Dubai Destination and Fantastic Light. Darley's Irish stallion station, Kildangan, announced fees (all in euros) of 50,000 ($63,700) for Cape Cross, 35,000 (44,500) for King's Best, and 20,000 ($25,400) for Refuse To Bend.
