Hallowed Crown (Street Sense) will relocate from Darley to Twin Hills­ Stud for the 2020 season, where he will stand for a fee of $11,000 (inc GST).

Hallowed Crown has sired 32 winners from his first two crops, including stakes-performers Big Hearted and The Perfect Crown, while his progeny also include last week's impressive Sandown two-year-old winner Crown Mint as well as the James Cummings-trained Colette - who many rate as a genuine contender for the ATC Oaks (Gr 1, 2400m). 

Bred by Gooree Park Stud and trained by Bart and James Cummings, Hallowed Crown was a talented juvenile. He won on debut at Randwick before taking out the Kindergarten Stakes (Gr 3, 1100m). 

As a three-year-old Hallowed Crown took out the Golden Rose (Gr 1, 1200m) and Randwick Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) and also scored victories in the Hobartville Stakes (Gr 2, 1400m) and Run To The Rose (Gr 3, 1200m), proving himself to be one of the very best of his generation. He retired from racing having won six of his nine starts and almost $1.4 million in prize money. 

"Hallowed Crown was an outstanding racehorse for whom big things are in store," said Twin Hills' Olly Tait. 

"His first runners are only three-year-olds and there are a number of his progeny who are showing terrific potential. This quality is backed up by his winners to runners ratio, which is outstanding. 

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to stand another stallion of this quality on behalf of Mr Eduardo Cojuangco Jr, who owns Smart Missile. Smart Missile has had a huge influence on the development of Twin Hills and we hope that Hallowed Crown can have a similar impact."

Hallowed Crown is out of Group 3 winner Crowned Glory (Danehill), making him a half-brother to Group 3 winner and now sire Needs Further (Encosta De Lago). His third dam is Lady Giselle (Nureyv), and of eight winners headed by breed-shaping sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram) as well as Group 1 winning sire Baryshinkov (Kenmare).
