Bloodstock: High Estate back to stand at Newmarket.

High Estate, former European champion two-year-old and sire of Derby winner High-Rise, is to return from Japan to stand at stud in Newmarket for the forthcoming breeding season.

David Allan, of Allan Bloodlines, has acquired High Estate -whose Group winners also include State Crystal, Close Conflict and High Baroque-and the horse will stand at Collin Stud.

High Estate, a half-brother to King's Theatre, is a son of Shirley Heights, himself a son of Mill Reef. His son, High-Rise, will stand in Japan in 2001.

A successful sales stallion in his pre-Japan years, High Estate was trained by Henry Cecil to gain championship honours with victories in the Coventry, Solario, Vintage and Royal Lodge Stakes in 1988.

Robin Sharp, of Collin Stud, said he was delighted to be standing the horse in England for the first time, having expressed interest in him before.

"It's not surprising that a top two-year-old from this sire line also has the quality to sire a Derby winner," he added. "With Shirley Heights sadly gone, High Estate can carry on his and Mill Reef's tradition at a fair fee."

High Estate will stand at a fee of pounds 4,000 (October 1 terms). He leaves a large crop of yearlings in Japan this year, having previously stood for two years as a private stallion.
