Dundeel Retired, to Stand at Arrowfield Stud

Stud fee for six-time group I winner to be announced.

The retirement of It's A Dundeel to Arrowfield Stud was announced April 21 by Arrowfield Chairman John Messara. 

He will be known at stud by his original New Zealand-registered name of Dundeel and his 2014 service fee will be announced shortly. 

The son of High Chaparral and Stareel (by Zabeel) ended his brilliant racing career by carrying Arrowfield's silks to a dominant championship victory in Saturday's $4 million ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes (Aus-I), earning the sixth group I victory of his career.

"Dundeel was a racehorse of the highest class, effective at the group I level from 1,600 to 2,400 meters, with immense natural athleticism, a high cruising speed, and a devastating turn of foot," Messara said. "These attributes, combined with his undaunted toughness and courage, make him this year's most exciting stallion prospect. We are delighted to offer him to Australian and New Zealand breeders."
