Dual Gr.1 winning miler by sire of sires GALILEO.

From the family of leading sire GREEN DANCER.

One of the fastest Sussex Stakes winners in recent years, quicker than SOLOW, KINGMAN and both of FRANKEL’s wins.

The Gurkha’s impressive win in Sunday’s Poule d’Essai des Poulains upheld the rich tradition in the race of his extended family. Out of [2YO] Group 3 winner Chintz, The Gurkha is a direct descendant of Green Valley, dam of the 1975 winner Green Dancer, and from the further family of Grey Dawn, who was placed in the 1965 renewal. Source: Nancy Sexton, Racing Post 19th May 2016
