Talking Turkey!

Sire of Aussie champions

Gr1 Epsom Derby winning stallion Authorized (Montjeu-Funsie, by Saumarez) is the latest high-profile sire sold to Turkey.

According to the Racing Post, the Turkish Jockey Club are looking to reinvigorate their stallion ranks for the 2020 season, and debatably Authorized is their most significant purchase yet.

Trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam in the UK, the 15 year old Gr1-producer sired Australian champions Hartnell, Complacent and Pounamu, yet his fame in Turkey has preceded his purchase, including local champions Toruk Macto and Bici Bici.

He will join stallions Bodemeister and Super Saver from North America and Myboycharlie from France.
