We purchased him for €23,000, from the Arqana Lumet Show Sale. There can be no denying the prevalence of the French bred horse in British and Irish National Hunt racing. Ever since the turn of the millennium, more and more of our top races are being dominated by the French bred horse.

Our gelding hails from the Grade 1 and Grade 2 French winning family of LOUPING D’AINAY and SIRENE D’AINAY, and being by Montmartre, the sire of Labaik, Bigmartre, Petite Parisienne and Capitaine, he is bred to excel over hurdles and fences. Read about his sire here: https://www.agakhanstuds.com/Horse/200500303/en

He has been schooled over numerous obstacles at home, both loose schooling (without a jockey) and with a jockey on board too. At 17hh, he is a big, imposing, chasing type, who is destined for fences.

Racing Update (May): A giant of a horse, weighing in at over 17 hands. Ready to do, what he was always destined to do, i.e. go chasing. It looks like his best trip is 2m4f to 3 miles so there’ll be plenty of options for him going forward. He’ll have a busy, and hopefully productive summer. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.

Here he is enjoying himself at home!
