Royal Gem | Bay Entire (1999)
Stakes Winning Son by Tried and True Stallion ROYAL ACADEMY - a Sire Of Sires
ROYAL GEM has a Stallions pedigree, with NIJINSKY, SECRETARIAT, and a double cross of BOLD RULER close up. The NIJINSKY Sire line is thought to cross so well with the other strains of NORTHERN DANCER, lines that are abundantly available to breeders.
His Sire, ROYAL ACADEMY is also the sire in Australia, of hotly-demanded stallion BEL ESPRIT ( himself the sire of current World Champion Horse BLACK CAVIAR ).
ROYAL GEM won 4 times on turf from 1300 metres to 1900 metres including victory in the Grade 3 Bay Meadows Derby, after racing three wide for most of the journey and beating graded Stakes winners ALY BUBBA and CENTURY CITY. Milers tend to make the best Sires at Stud.
He also won the Listed Santa Anita Academy Road Stakes at only his second start, storming home from last place, coming eight wide on the final turn. Perhaps one of his best achievements was his meritorious 3rd behind JOHAR, running home well in the Grade1 Hollywood Derby ( 9 furlongs, turf ).
ROYAL GEM'S dam TIFFANY'S GEM performed from 1200 metres to 1600 metres winning 5 times including the Listed Golden Gate Luisant Hcp and the Camilla Urso Hcp
An imposing bay horse standing 16.3h, and with a powerful physique and extremely correct confirmation, ROYAL GEM'S first crop are now 2 year olds and his very first runner, CHEONJAE BOGO , has already been a race winner over 1000 metres in Korea.
From limited numbers to date in New Zealand, ROYAL GEM has been represented by 7 individual winners from only 19 starters, a key feature as a Sire at the lower end of the market.
ROYAL GEM is a genuine Stallion for any Stud farm wanting great Bloodlines and will now allow a suitable breeding farm, a nice opportunity to continue breeding.
