Bigstone to stand in China.

BIGSTONE, winner of five Group 1 races for Elie Lellouche, is to become one of the first major stallions to venture into China.

The nine-year-old son of Last Tycoon and Batave has stood chiefly at Ireland's Coolmore Stud, which has agreed an offer from Y P Chen.

Chen has a band of broodmares in China, where the racing and breeding industries are striving hard to upgrade. The potential for growth and commercial openings has assured interest from the world's major racing nations.

Trained by Elie Lellouche, Bigstone's major victories included the Sussex Stakes and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes in 1993, and the 1994 Prix de la Foret.

nA yearling by Pentire, who stands in Japan, is to appear at the Houghton Sale at Tattersalls in September. In the consignment from Ballyhimikin Stud, the colt is out of the Mr Prospector mare Lay Claim, a winning half-sister to Grade-1 winners Time For A Change, Adjudicating and Dispute. It will be the first yearling by the King George winner to be offered at auction outside Japan.
