Purchased at the Osarus Breeze Up Sale in France, this colt is FRENCH OWNER PREMIUMS QUALIFIED and will stay in France, to be trained by Simone Brogi - trainer of our 10-time winning Mensen Ernst.

By RECORDER, the leading French 1st crop sire. Owned by Her Majesty The Queen, read a story the son of Galileo and his move to stud duties in France, here:

Watch his breeze here:

We really loved his breeze, still showing a little greenness to be fair, a breeze, in which, he covered so much ground with his huge stride, and where he looked to have a great head carriage. The photo of him, in his gallop, really stretching out, shows both his physical and mental prowess. He hails from one of the top Breeze Ups consignors in France, so he comes from a very good nursery indeed.

He’s a strong and robust looking individual, qualified for French Owner Premiums (FOP), of course, which are a real bonus to such horses racing in France. Now here is an example of how lucrative these premiums are for owners: Mensen Ernst has won €88,200 of race prize money with €43,188 of FOP on top of that! (In the gallery you can see an example of the prize money and premiums earned in a Maiden on May 3rd at Chantilly.)

He looks like he’ll be perfect for the 2nd half of the French Flat season when 2yo racing in France only really gets going, proper. Distances of 7f and a mile ought to befit him perfectly. He looks like he could be a high-class prospect. It is our understanding that he timed joint 15th fastest performer of the 60 odd horse cohort of breezers, on hand timings, finishing very strongly. It is some achievement to finish so close up on the times, for a horse with a 7f-1m2f pedigree and a large frame to get going with in the early part of the gallop.

Given the successes of Mensen Ernst and Fighter In The Win, we thought there was no more suitable candidate to train him than Simone Brogi, who trains at Pau, near Toulouse and not far from Cagnes Sur Mer.

Son of Galileo, Recorder wouldn’t be the most fashionable of all stallions, but he was a high class 2yo himself from July onwards and the mare of this strong and athletic colt has already produced 2 black type performers including 4 winnings 2yo’s. We’ve made a bit of a career of racing horses by less fashionable stallions, so this fellow sits perfectly well with our MO. He’s very well bred indeed, when you factor together, both sides of his pedigree.

He’s a welcome addition to our 2yo ranks.

Training Update (21st May): He has settled into Simone's yard very well and has already caught up with Simon's 2-year-old string in his routine. He sent us some videos of him at gentle (see the gallery.) He is indeed a good moving and handsome colt.
