Breeder: N.Z. Stud Co.
At the end of his race career he was purchased by the New Zealand Stud Co. to replace his deceased sire Musket. He was an immediate success as a stallion and was rated an outstanding sire. He left the NZ Derby winner Medallion (later a good sire) in his first crop. Unfortunately just as he was reaching his peak at age 8 he was sold to Australia for the large sum of 5,600 guineas following the breakup of the New Zealand Stud Co.
Foaled 1882 in NZ, the first NZ-born foal of Onyx (by Angler-Chrysolite by Stockwell) who had previously left the good broodmare Sardonyx while at stud in Australia.
