Le Havre is probably the best young stallion in France and one of the best in Europe. He is already the sire of over 40 Stakes performers, headlined by the two dual Group 1 winning fillies of the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and the Prix de Diane Longines: AVENIR CERTAIN and LA CRESSONNIERE. Read his full stallion biography here: http://www.montfort-preaux.com/en/etalons/havre-thoroughbred-bay,76535.html

We are huge fans of this stallion's progeny having had considerable success with our own TIGRE DU TERRE (sold for a considerable sum last year) and Listed winner BOITRON. We have been very lucky to be able to purchase this stunning filly, with both a fantastic pedigree and a superb conformation, through the skill of ace bloodstock agents Peter and Ross Doyle. Her pedigree is sensational given she is by a Champion young sire out of a Sadler’s Wells mare. He was in fact Champion brood mare sire from 2005 to 2010 inclusive and he looks sure to remain amongst the most successful in this sphere for at least another decade. Some examples of Sadler's Wells brood mares with Group 1 winning progeny are Soviet Moon (Workforce), Well Head (Conduit), Sequoyah (Henrythenavigator), Maryinsky (Peeping Fawn and Thewayyouare), in fact, the list is endless.

She is from one of the very best French families, that of Whakilyric, Hernando and Johann Quatz (Tigre Du Terre was out of a daughter of Johann Quatz). Other than the Miesque line, it's just about as good a family as you will get in France. In addition, though, our filly is a robust and strong individual.

There was a feature on LE HAVRE in the Racing Post, which also mentions our own Tigre Du Terre. You can read it here: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/bloodstock-world/how-breeders-and-buyers-have-made-le-havre-their-first-port-of-call/314489.

Syndicate manager update (April 2020): She is a gorgeous and really well bred daughter of the fabulous Le Havre, out of a mare by Sadlers Wells. She has yet to live up to her pedigree, but she is improving all the time. Finished 3rd last time out and is destined to win her first races very very soon, God willing. She’s the perfect horse for a first time owner and should run regularly.

Here she is on April 8th:
