AL Adaayit’s former Dubai champion, Asiatic Boy (blue cap on photo), has made a superb start to his stud career. The former Mike de Kock-trained UAE Triple Crown winner has been represented by just five 2yos from his first crop this season – and has already had three winners.
Asiatic Boy’s latest winner was the impressive Galicado, who recently scored an eye catching eight length win on debut at Palermo. His previous other scorers include facile debut winner Egyptian Queen and Entrelineas.

Asiatic Boy was an outstanding racehorse, who competed successfully around the world. A high-class juvenile in Argentina, Asiatic Boy won Dubai’s Triple Crown in 2007 – landing the Gr3 UAE 2000 Guineas by 4.5 lengths, the Al Bastikiya by seven, and the Gr2 UAE Derby by a whopping 9.5 lengths. Later runner up (to champion Curlin) in the Gr1 Dubai World Cup, the very versatile Asiatic Boy also won the Gr3 Al Shindagha Sprint (over 1200m) and the Maktoum Challenge (Round 3) over 2000m.

Asiatic Boy is my all time favourite Mike de Kock trained-horse. I’m really happy that he’s proving his worth at stud as well.
That’s great news … please keep us posted if you can.
