First year at stud for Protectionist has been a success from what I've read. High fertility rate. Good book of mares including individual Group winners, dams of Group winners & half sisters to Group winners.

Good news. Protectionist is now officially a dad. Two fillies & one colt so far. More to come.

Some of Protectionist's first yearlings have recently been purchased at the Baden-Baden auction sales. And yes, some will be heading down-under.

2yo filly Milka became the first Black Type progeny for her sire Protectionist. Runner-up last month in the Listed Junioren-Preis in Germany.
