Darley’s Librettist shuttles to New Zealand

Group 1 winning miler Librettist will shuttle to Westbury Stud in New Zealand for the forthcoming southern hemisphere season.

The Danzig stallion, who is currently based at Haras du Logis in France, stood his first southern hemisphere season at Darley Kelvinside last year.

Librettist was a top-class Godolphin two-year-old winning two of his three starts.  After injury saw him miss his three-year-old season, Librettist returned to his winning ways with a run of five increasingly impressive front-running victories, including the G1 Prix Jacques le Marois and the Prix du Moulin over a mile.

Librettist is a half-brother to Dubai Destination and stood his first two seasons at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket but was transferred to Haras du Logis this year, where he stands for 7,000 euros.  His first northern hemisphere crop are yearlings.

Westbury Stud also stands Captain Rio (Pivotal), Cecconi (Encosta de Lago), Faltaat (Mr Prospector) and Great Britain (Green Desert).
