Almanzor Leads Haras d'Etreham 2021 Roster

Champion and MG1SW Almanzor (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}), who will have his first 2-year-olds in 2021, leads the Haras d'Etreham roster at €30,000, the French stud announced on Sunday. Also a shuttle stallion to Cambridge Stud in the Southern Hemisphere, a 1/50th share in the Cartier champion 3-year-old colt of 2016 was bought for €310,000 at the Arqana Online Sale this past Wednesday and his yearlings have been well received, selling for up to €280,000.

Joining him at €30,000 is  Persian King (Ire) (Kingman {GB}-Pretty Please {Ire}, by Dylan Thomas {Ire}), who will cover his first mares in 2021. A winner of the G1 French 2000 Guineas, G1 Prix d'Ispahan and G1 Prix du Moulin, the 4-year-old's final race was a good third in the G1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Another new stallion at d'Etreham is MG1SW Hello Youmzain (Fr) (Kodiac {GB}), who will also shuttle to Cambridge Stud in New Zealand alongside Almanzor. Successful in the G1 Betfair Sprint Cup and G1 Diamond Jubilee S., he will command €25,000.

Second-season sire City Light (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) will remain at €7,000 after receiving 137 mares in 2020, over one-third of them black-type performers or producers. The Flat roster is rounded out by Scissor Kick (Aus) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}) at €5,000. His oldest foals will be 3-year-olds in 2021.

In the National Hunt sphere, Haras d'Etreham boasts a quartet in 2021 led by established sire Saint des Saints (Fr) (Cadoudal {Fr}) at €15,000. Haras d'Etreham will also stand a jumps trio at Haras de la Tuilerie– Masked Marvel (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}) at €5,000, Goliath du Berlais (Fr) (Saint des Saints {Fr}) at €7,500 and new stallion and G1 Irish Derby hero Latrobe (Ire) (Camelot {GB}-Question Time {GB}, by Shamardal) at €4,000.

“I would like to take advantage of this announcement of our stallion feed to reconfirm our policy of limiting our sires to 140 mares,” said d'Etreham's Nicolas de Chambure. “This seems to us to be the best way to respect and support breeders who place their trust in our stallions. This allows them, during this uncertain period, to be assured of a certain exclusivity and value of their progeny on the market. In a competitive context, pricing policy does not suffice. Breeding and stallion management are activities which must be considered with a long-term view.”
