‘He is all Lonhro. His size, his shape, his length. In fact, Lonhro, Vain, Marscay are all there when you look at him. Denman has a kind head and an honest way about him. He is a little bigger than average, has a good front leg and moves very well. He is striking but not flash. A very good looking horse.’ Olly Tait

His Progeny


His best yet – 2021 Hong Kong sprint Champion Hot King Prawn – has amassed $5.9m and is rated even higher than he was. His 2021 yearling average – $59k with a $160k top lot – shows he remains in demand with trainers and owners.
