Haras d'Etreham Reveals 2020 Fees


Almanzor | Haras d'Etreham

Four stallions make up the 2020 Haras d'Etreham Flat roster, led by Wootton Bassett (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}) at €40,000, Jour de Galop reported on Tuesday. His son, Cartier champion sophomore colt Almanzor (Fr), commands €35,000 and has his first weanlings this year. The rest of the Flat roster is made up of new shooter MGSW & MG1SP City Light (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}-Light Saber {Fr}, by Kendor {Fr}) at €7,000 and reverse shuttler, GSW & G1SP Scissor Kick (Aus) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}) is at €5,000.

D'Etreham's Nicolas de Chambure told Jour de Galop, “After being full the last three seasons at €20,000 and then €40,000, Wootton Bassett should continue to progress as a stallion, especially as his progeny have show real ability to progress from two to three. Almanzor has already covered more than 40 Group 1 performers or producers. Indeed, the dam of Uni (GB) (More Than Ready) and that of Itsinthepost (Fr) (American Post {GB}) both gave birth to Almanzor colts in 2019.”

He added, “The syndication [of City Light] went well and City Light will receive tremendous support from his shareholders. He's a healthy horse with a good physique and a lot of quality. The first juveniles of Scissor Kick start in 2020. We are delighted with his production of very athletic yearlings, with substance and bone.”
