“I think Byword has a huge shot to make a major sire in South Africa – It’s rare to see a Southern Hemisphere stud which can afford the ‘complete package’. Byword is by the scintillating Arc winner and very successful sire, Peintre Celebre, out of a woodman mare from one of Price Khalid’s best families. I really rate him” – Bill Oppenheim
Byword is one of 12 Gr1 winners sired by Prix de’l Arc de Triomphe winner Peintre Celebre (sire of over 60 stakes winners).
Out of English Broodmare Of The Year Binche (dam of multiple Gr1 winner Proviso by Dansili), Byword is from the “Peace” family (responsible for successful SA sire Peacetime) and Byword shares his broodmare sire, Woodman, with world leading sire More Than Ready.
