Deputy Minister – Rose's Cantina, by Naskra
Mickey is a stunningly gorgeous stallion, by a G1 winner out of a G1 winner. Bred by the legendary Calumet Farm, Minister General is the result of breeding the best to the best.
Mickey's sire, Deputy Minister, was Horse of the Year in Canada, and was twice ranked as the Leading Sire in North America. Loaded with names like Awesome Again, Ghostzapper, Dehere and Touch Gold, the Deputy Minister sire line is increasingly sought out by breeders around the globe.
His dam, Rose's Cantina, has a legacy of her own to add. From a female line loaded with blacktype, Rose's Cantina was herself a multiple G1 stakes winner of $723,139.
While Mickey's racing career was cut short by an early injury, we are fortunate that he found a new career as a sire. With exceptional conformation, movement and temperament, Mickey is truly a classic hunter type sire. He is a great choice for adding refinement to heavier mares.
Minister General's first foal crops include:
Don't overlook this boy as a sire for racing foals. He may be pretty, but he's bred to run!
