This particular eventer had an advanced mare who she bred to Kauto Star, but it did not make it to birth.
Please explain. Kauto Star is a gelding.
Garde Royale is the sire of the excellent National Hunt cross-country specialist Garde Champetre, who's won a number of times at the Cheltenham Festival. That said, IIRC, Garde Champetre was a very high-priced youngster at the sales -- JP McManus paid something in the high six-figures for him -- so he's not exactly made his money back.

Dirk Schrade rides a horse named King Artus, who is by King Milford xx, a TB standing in Germany. King Milford is by Milford, who is by Mill Reef. Nine stallions by Mill Reef have descendants who have produced eventers, many in Germany.
Ghareeb has Shirley Heights by Mill Reef as damsire, and so does Painters Row--although I'm not suggesting Painters Row who has proved himself to be pretty much a sport horse bust to date. Shirley Heights is also the sire of Golden Heights, a lovely TB who stand.stood for both racing and sport in the UK, but has not had get who've made to the 3* and above levels. However, he has/had an OTTB daughter in a top class sport horse breeding program--ie Future Sport Horses. And he's got some 2*s and below who have done well--Euro Champs for YR, for example. Then there's Dashing Blade (TB stallion in Germany) who is a sireline grandson of Shirley Heights and he's got more than a few licensed stallion sons all over Europe. The Mill Reef descendants come from all over the world, but there are fewer in the English speaking countries, excluding Ghareeb. There is one New Zealand Thoroughbred descendant, but he's eventing in Sweden. Personally, I believe that Mill Reef is still so potent in racing that his best just haven't trickled down to sport yet.
He (Kauto Star), BTW, has Mill Reef tail male sire and dam, along with Relic twice. Nice representation for the old style US TB, I'd say.
