Kingman’s champion miler Palace Pier has been retired to stud and will stand at Dalham Hall for Darley 2022.

Purchased for 600,000 guineas at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book One from the Highclere Stud draft by his trainer, Palace Pier ran for Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum and was the Champion 3YO Colt of 2020.

Sam Bullard, Director of Stallions at Darley, said, “Palace Pier is a wonderful horse to look at – and he’s even more impressive in full flight. He’s dominated the hugely competitive mile division for two seasons. He’s a very rare talent and we are privileged to be standing him.”


A stud fee for Palace Pier will be announced at a later date.
