Australian sires covered more than 23,000 mares during the 2009 breeding season.
The Blood-Horse has learned that the search for the stallion Dubai Excellence, a half-brother to Dubai Millennium, has turned to Ukraine, the former Russian territory which is an independent country.
The horse believed to have been Dubai Excellence when sold to stand at stud in Australia has been identified as Samood.
DNA testing has confirmed that the horse sent to stand at stud in Australia is not Dubai Millennium's half-brother, Dubai Excellence.
