Segenhoe’s Merchant Navy Takes the Diamond Jubilee Stakes

Segenhoe bred Coolmore Stud G1 winner Merchant Navy who will stand next to his father, super sire Fastnet Rock, at Jerrys Plains after being sold to global breeding powerhouse Coolmore for more than $30 million.

It is the first son of Fastnet Rock that Coolmore has decided to buy following his racecourse performances, and he is seen as having all the attributes of his famous father. He races on under the management of Coolmore.

Merchant Navy never looked troubled in the race and would have won by considerably more except for the Ward horse Bound for Nowhere hanging in on top of him.
