The lamentable sale of Golden Horn to rebrand him as a National Hunt sire was immediately followed by an uplift in the stallion’s flat results. He sired the winner of the Galtres Stakes (subsequently second home in the St Leger), the winner of the Ebor and the second in the Melrose. There could hardly be a sire who better fits the profile of what we are trying to achieve, as he is proven and under-rated. The dam was rated around the mid 70s as was her first foal by Iffraaj. He won, or was placed on all five of his starts. 

This is a prolific, top-class family, nurtured by the Wildensteins, who have been leading French breeders for decades. The fourth dam is the great Allez France – follow this link

Allez France – WikipediaAllez France (24 May 1970 – 11 December 1989) was an American-bred, French-trained Thoroughbred racehorse and broodmare.Winner of the French 1000 Guineas, the French Oaks and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, she was one of the greatest-ever fillies in European flat

Daughters of broodmare sire High Chaparral have been responsible for Helene Paragon a top horse in Hong Kong and a range of winners from Royal Ascot two-year-old The Wow Signal to Melrose winner Dark Crusader. His stock is valued far more highly in Australia, where he has some sons who are popular sires.

This is a rangy, staying type who will be active towards the end of his two years old season. He qualifies for French premiums, so expect to see him across the Channel at some stage in his career. He is in training with Kevin Philippart de Foy in Newmarket.

The colt started his two year old season showing some promise in a Goodwood novice and to our eyes ran a very promising race at Newmarket a few weeks later, finishing 8th of 17 in a very competitive heat. We are confident this is just the type to progress over a trip as a three year old.
