RATHBARRY STUD ANNOUNCE ACQUISITION OF STATE OF REST
Rathbarry Stud, in conjunction with Newgate Farm Australia & Partners, are delighted to announce the acquisition of Sunday’s impressive Group 1 Prix Ganay winner STATE OF REST.
“We are delighted to have purchased such an elite and unique international racehorse to join our stallion roster when he completes his racing career,” said Rathbarry Stud’s Paul Cashman.
A debut winner as a two-year-old over six furlongs, and placed in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes, STATE OF REST has gone on to win three Group 1 races across three continents in his last three starts, including the prestigious Group 1 Cox Plate in Australia and Group 1 Saratoga Derby in the USA.
This extremely talented young horse is trained by Joseph O’Brien, who has several Group 1 targets in mind for STATE OF REST for the remainder of the season before retiring to stud.
