GRADE 1 winner Discreet Cat will move from Darley's Jonabell Farm in Kentucky to the operation's stud in Japan for the 2017 breeding season.

Under the care of Saeed Bin Suroor, the 13-year-old son of Forestry won five races including the Group 2 UAE Derby, the Grade 2 Jerome Breeders' Cup Handicap and the Grade 1 Cigar Mile as a three-year-old.

Retired to stud in 2008, he is the sire of the Grade 1 winners Dads Caps, Discreet Marq and Secret Compass.

Harry Sweeney, president of Darley in Japan said: "We are very excited to be standing Discreet Cat in Japan from next year.

"We think his progeny will be well-suited to Japanese races and he already has some very promising runners in Japan, including Grade 3 Negishi Stakes winner Air Khalifa and proven open class performer Qismah.

"His sire, Forestry, is by Storm Cat and will be an interesting mating for Sunday Silence-line mares. We look forward to showing him to breeders in the coming weeks."

A fee for Discreet Cat will be set at a later date.
