Bred by Lady Yule, England. Imported from England to Australia in 1947 by Mrs. A.D.D. Maclean, Fenwick Stud, Victoria, Australia. See Hanstead Horses by RJ Cadranell A brown horse foaled 1936, and already a show winner as a yearling. He matured to 16 hands and a quarter inch. Because most of his Hanstead career took place during the war years, his opportunity at stud was limited, but true to the Hanstead pattern, he achieved much with his few foals, which included Oran. In 1947 Mrs. Maclean bought him and the young mare Carlina for her stud in Australia. Riffal became a major influence there.
