Helmsman | Bay Entire (1992)
Sire of Tough Talented Winners
By the champion racehorse and successful sire EL GRAN SENOR, HELMSMAN proved to be a champion racehorse and successful sire in his own right.
A champion 2 year old in Ireland, HELMSMAN transferred those racing qualities to the USA where he became a Group One winner and was recognised by as one of the very best horses in training at the time.
At stud, HELMSMAN wasted no time in establishing himself as a sire of talented and durable horses.
HELMSMAN struck with his very first crop producing Champion Canadian 2 year old RARE FRIENDS as well as the Fort Erie champion sprinter SHIPMAN in his second crop.
Given his turf pedigree, HELMSMAN has received modest support at stud in the USA, despite this he has fashioned a solid record and is amongst those rare stallions who is able to upgrade mares bred to him.
His trademark is to leave tough durable horses who train on over many seasons of racing.
HELMSMAN has a pedigree that is particularly suited to the prevailing bloodlines in New Zealand and offers a wonderful opportunity to linebreed to BEST IN SHOW whose influence is widespread in New Zealand through sires such as O'REILLY, REDOUTE'S CHOICE, TOWKAY, SPINNING WORLD, MASTERCLASS and THORN PARK to name but a few.
HELMSMAN is a horse of size and substance siring impressive looking stock.
