Knightsbridge Stallion Honorius standing privately at Larneuk and Bloodstockauction.com have been successfully raising money for Ronald McDonald House Westmead. Over $5000 has been raised so far and there is still plenty of time to make a donation and secure a service to Honorius.

The only way the public can secure a service to Honorius in 2020 is to buy it via Bloodstockauction.com via a donation to Ronald McDonald House Westmead.

Issaree Suwunnavid CEO of Knightsbridge said “we are very pleased with how well the donations are progressing.”

Bred to be a Champion Honorius is an impressive stallion with an impeccable pedigree and strong racing credentials that will prove to be popular in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Europe, UK and Singapore, a strong turf stallion that performed at the highest grade Honorius is set to be a future star. He is by proven sire in both hemispheres, HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR, a Coolmore owned sire of ten individual Group 1 winners in seven different countries.
