Coolmore in the past has stood such stallions as Danehill, Spinning World, and Thunder Gulch on lease arrangements in Japan.
Coolmore stallions Desert King and Entrepreneur, both of whom are European champions, will stand in Japan in 2002 on a one-year lease arrangement. A champion in Ireland, Desert King (Danehill--Sabaah, by Nureyev) will stand at East Stud for ¥2 million (approximately $16,000). Entrepreneur (Sadler's Wells--Exclusive Order, by Exclusive Native) was a champion in England. Both are 7-year-olds, and their first foals are running as 2-year-olds.
