Gelding by Rip Van Winkle out of unraced Green Desert mare Amallna, a half brother to dual winning filly Lady Perpignon. He is a very exciting prospect and has thrived, a yearling of immense size who we have high hopes for.

Boreas Duke made his debut over hurdles at Hexham in June 2019 where he finished third.
