Mungrup Stud shuttler Dick Turpin has just finished his latest book at the English National Stud and staff at the Newmarket property have also been welcoming his second crop of foals.
Dick Turpin won his first four races as an early two year old including the G2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. He returned at three to win the G3 Greenham Stakes and followed up with seconds in the G1 English 2000 Guineas, G1 French 2000 Guineas and G1 St James Palace Stakes before delivering a four length victory in the G1 Prix Jean Prat (1600m) at Chantilly.
In Australia, the first Dick Turpins arrived last spring and Sunspeed breeders rebooked to the stallion on the back of the appearance of his first crop of foals.
Mungrup Stud will stand Dick Turpin for an $8,800 (inc gst) service fee in 2014.

Dick Turpin gives Zietunzeen every chance to upgrade her pedigree with this bay colt for owner-breeder Brendan Boyle. The mare comes from the family of Victorian based Bullarook Stud sire Monde Bleu (Last Tycoon).
