Probably the most famous resident of The Nunnery Stud was the now sadly deceased GREEN DESERT; a son of DANZIG born in 1983, he is widely recognised to be one of the most influential sires of modern times.
During his career, he has produced no less than 19 individual Gr. 1 winners and world class sires such as OASIS DREAM, CAPE CROSS and INVINCIBLE SPIRIT.
Other famous stallions to have stood at the Nunnery Stud include 1989 Epsom Derby winner NASHWAN; high-class performer UNFUWAIN and 2001 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner SAKHEE.
