European Champion Older Horse of 2008, Duke Of Marmalade, is a 5 time Group 1 winning son of the late Champion Sire, Danehill, out of the Group placed Love Me True.
Group placed at both two and three years of age in the very best of company, including 2nd to European Champion Dylan Thomas in the Irish Champion Stakes Gr.1, Duke Of Marmalade would go on to record 5 consecutive Group 1 victories culminating in the defeat of European Champion 3 year old New Approach in the Juddmonte International Stakes Gr.1.
