Classic-winning miler Dubawi (by Dubai Millennium) is well-established as being one of the world's leading sires, and although he has not yet made the sort of impact with his stallion sons as his great rival Galileo has done, there is no reason why some of his sons should not go on to become important sires.
Group 1 Deutsches Derby winner Waldpark is standing for a €3,000 fee, which suggests that the Haras du Thenney team member has some way to climb, but he is a well-bred horse – as one might expect – and he looks likely to get most of his flat blacktype horses in the mile to 14-furlong range.
Waldpark is out of dual joint-champion German runner Wurfaube (by Acatenango), whose string of blacktype wins featured the Group 2 Gerling Preis over 12 furlongs and the 14-furlong Group 2 Deutsches St Leger, in which she beat Night Petticoat by 11 lengths.
The mare's stakes-placed half-sister Wurfspiel (by Lomitas) is the dam of US Grade 1 scorer Wake Forest (by Sir Percy), her siblings also include Group 3 winner Wurfscheibe (by Tiger Hill), and her offspring include Group 2 Falmouth Stakes runner-up Waldmark (by Mark of Esteem).
That half-sister to Waldpark is the dam of Group 1 St Leger hero and Haras d'Etreham stallion Masked Marvel (by Montjeu), of mile listed race winner Waldnah (by New Approach), and of Walderche (by Monsun), the Group 3 Prix Penelope-winning dam of classic-placed Group 1 star Waldgeist (by Galileo).
