  • Dual-Derby winner Sinndar, who crowned his career with an historic victory in this month’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, has been retired to stud.

    Sinndar, the first horse ever to complete the Epsom Derby-Irish Derby-Arc treble, will stand at hisowner the Aga Khan’s Gilltown Stud in Ireland at a fee of £IR30,000.

    He joins other Aga Khan stallions Daylami and Darshaan for the 2001 covering season.

    Pat Downes, manager at Gilltown Stud, said: “We are very much looking forward to having Sinndar here. I have no doubt he will be a hit with the breeders. He was obviously a very, very good horse – a Group 1 winner at two and three as well as winner of the Arc.”

    Sinndar, who is by Grand Lodge, was beaten only once in eight starts. He was successful twice at two, including the Aga Khan Studs National Stakes.

    After failing narrowly first time out he got better with every race, reaching the ultimate in Paris earlier this month (October).
