“Like many top sires, Curved Ball was probably best over a mile, scoring his biggest victory in the G2 Dingaans. He met and defeated such top-class performers as Bulsara, Exhilaration, Smanjemanje, Club Victor and Galileo’s Galaxy.
“Fastnet Rock, who entered stud in 2005, finished with 130 individual winners of 231 races, and 16 of his progeny won 31 black-type races, including 10 at group 1 level by four separate runners. The most striking point to come from Fastnet Rock’s title is the class of stallions he bested. Champions such as Lonhro, Redoute’s Choice and More Than Ready.” – Grant Knowles
