Nicknamed Ian Botham for the way he used to bash the Aussies, he beat Takeover Target, Nicconi, Gold Trail and Magnus in winning the Group 1 King Stand Stakes, twice, at Royal Ascot.  From an emerging sire line by Acclamation, and from the family that produced Anabandana and Kings Rose, The King of Speed always raced on pace.
  • Dual Group 1 winner of the King's Stand Stakes (1000m).
  • The son of Europe's hottest sire, Acclamation.
  • Emerging dominant sire line with Acclamation's first son to stud, Dark Angel a leading sire.
  • Excellent out-cross to Northern Dancer mares.
  • Athletic and well balanced.
  • Oversubscribed at stud in the Northern Hemisphere.
  • From the family that produced Anabandana and King's Rose.
  • Very intelligent, placid, with distinguishing features he is throwing to his progeny.
  • Requires extra pages in his passport because he will be shuttling for a very long time.
"Already a successful sire of sires, there can be no more promising sire son of Acclamation than dual Group One King's Stand Stakes winner Equiano. He has great credentials; speed, looks and commerciality." Bill Oppenheim - Bloodstock Consultant
"Equiano has a great sire line as Acclamation is building a reputation as a sire of sires." Shane Anderson - International Racing and Breeding Commentator
"The criteria for a successful commercial sire are speed, excellent conformation and an attractive, fashionable pedigree- Equiano fills all three admirably." Paul Thorman - Trickledown Stud
