In The Wings is a stallion whose line is very successful in Germany. Full article

Keen Ice, for whom the triumph in the Travers Stakes after previous places in the Haskel Invitational and Belmont Stakes was the first victory in a black-type race, deserves attention not just thanks to the beating of the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 but also thanks to his pedigree which is exceptional in some ways.

The Saturday triumph in the Eddie Read Handicap (Gr.1) in Del Mar made the five-year-old Gabriel Charles the third Gr.1 winner whose dam was sired by Nureyev’s son Atticus.
