Unique to WA, Saxon's pedigree combines Australia's most influential sire line with the UK's most influential sire line.


The world’s best modern sire was Champion Australian sire nine times, Champion European sire three times, Champion British sire twice, Champion French sire, Champion Australian Juvenile sire six times and Champion European Juvenile sire five times. With so many accolades, progeny earning in excess of $380 million and with over 340 Stakes winners to his credit, it is perhaps Danehill’s inherent ability to sire successful sires that will be his greatest legacy.  They include Champion sires such as Redoute’s Choice, Fastnet Rock, Flying Spur, Rock of Gibraltar, Commands, Danzero and WA’s ill fated Danetime to name but a few. It is likely the sun will never set on the seemingly endless phenomenon that is Danehill.


Sadler’s Wells was the high class racehorse that his form merited but his place in history was to change as he went on to become a phenomenon in the world of breeding. He was recorded as a Champion Great Britain sire fourteen times and has been a Champion broodmare sire five times in that country. His prowess as a sire of sires was first and best highlighted to Western Australian breeders through the deeds of his Champion Australian sire son, in Scenic. That same influence now dominates the leading Australian sires tables once again through his Champion leading sire son, in High Chaparral, sire of modern day hero So You Think.
