King Of Change Will Be Retired To Stud At The End Of The 2020 Flat Season

King Of Change

The breeding industry will receive a great boost following the announcement that King Of Change will be retired to stud at the end of the 2020 flat season. The stud where he will stand will be announced in the coming weeks.

The son of top sire Farhh is a half-brother to recent Celebration Mile and multiple Group-race winner Century Dream. King Of Change announced himself at the top table when finishing second to Magna Graecia in last year’s 2,000 Guineas and confirmed this form when running out a ready winner of the Listed Fortune Stakes at Sandown. His imperious performance when winning last October’s Group-1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day at Ascot signalled King Of Change as one of Europe’s top milers, amassing just under £1million in career earnings.

His trainer Richard Hannon added, “He is without doubt one of the best milers that we have ever trained. His second in the 2,000 Guineas was an outstanding effort and he then went on to win the QEII on Champions Day with a performance that I can only describe as impeccable.

His obvious ability is matched by his physical stature and I am sure he is extremely well equipped to make it as a stallion.

I would like to express my thanks to the Belhab Family for allowing me to train a star like him. It has been a wonderful opportunity and a great pleasure. He will be sorely missed by everyone here when he leaves to do his new job and we look forward to following the paths of his offspring for years to come.”
