Fee £3,000 Oct 1st SLF
A champion 3yo sprinter in Ireland, he was a Royal Ascot two-year-old winner himself and is the only son of Zoffany at stud in the UK.
Washington DC is at an early stage in his stud career but he has already demonstrated that he can get black type performers and tough, durable sprinters that thrive on racing.
Many of his yearlings have gone to trainers renowned for getting two-year-old winners.
