One of only four stallions standing in the UK to sire Grade 1 or 2 winner over jumps in UK or Ireland this season.
Alne Park Stud
Welcome to Alne Park Stud, the home of Dink, the only breeding son of champion sire Poliglote and sire to the 2020 Desert Orchid Chase winner, Nube Negra. A ten-time winner himself, Dink won the Spanish 2000 Guineas and placed third in the Spanish Derby.
“We have closely followed Dink and his progeny for the last three years and have been impressed by Nube Negra’s ability and looks for some time. I have previously purchased Dink’s progeny to come into training at my own yard because of their exemplary conformation and strength.
We have a number of young horses by Dink on the farm and all possess great presence, with plenty of size and scope. When the opportunity to buy Dink arose, I jumped at the chance and I am delighted that he is now standing in the UK. He is now one of only four active sires standing in the UK to have produced a Grade 1 or 2 winner over jumps in the UK or Ireland this season.
He only has a limited number of runners as he has not previously had the opportunity to cover many mares however, he has a high fertility rate. We fully intend to make use of him on our own mares and very much believe in his potential as a sire. I consider him to be a very exciting prospect for all breeders.”
