He is also the sire of the Neville Parnham trained Platoon, who ran third in the Group 3 WA Sires’ Produce Stakes, second in the Listed Perth Stakes and fourth in the Listed Magic Millions.
He is also the sire of the promising Playing Marika (2 wins) and Pletto (1 win), as well the placed gallopers Son Of Bacchus, Hotham Valley, What About Moses and God’s Land.
