Group 1 winner Onesto (Ire) (Frankel {GB}–Onshore {GB}, by Sea The Stars {Ire}), who is bound for the Breeders' Cup next month, will stand at Haras d'Etreham in 2024, the French stud announced on Tuesday.

Bred by Diamond Creek Farm in Ireland, the Fabrice Chappet runner was a debut winner at Chantilly in September of his 2-year-old year and won the G2 Prix Greffulhe in his second start at three. Fifth in the G1 Prix du Jockey Club, he claimed the Grand Prix de Paris last July and the colt was second in the G1 Irish Champion S. that September. Currently racing for Gerard Augustin-Normand, Jean-Etienne Dubois, Ecurie Hunter Valley, Haras d'Etreham, Ecurie Billon, Ecurie Elag, Chappet, and Hubert Guy, the 2023 G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe third is poised for a GI Breeders' Cup Turf bid at Santa Anita in less than a month, having exited the Arc in good order. His record stands at 12-3-2-1 and $1,327,473 in earnings.

Haras d'Etreham's Nicolas de Chambure said, “Selected by Hubert Guy at the breeze-up sales in America, Onesto has always shown great speed for a Classic horse. He possesses a most remarkable pedigree, which is why we acquired him as a 2-year-old. He was a magnificent colt and has become a very handsome horse with the conformation of a miler and a strong physique. Our hopes of seeing him becoming a stallion prospect have been realised thanks to his high-class performances at the top level. In addition to his natural speed, he boasts a rare capacity of acceleration and the mentality of a warrior.”

The 185,000gns Tattersalls October Book 1 yearling turned $535,000 OBS Spring Sale 2-year-old is out of the unraced mare Onshore. She is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Jet Away (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}), while her Kahyasi (Ire) dam Kalima (GB) is a full-sister to the tremendously influential blue hen Hasili (Ire) and her brood of top-level winners.

“His racing career has been a wonderful adventure alongside a group of enthusiastic associates and we are delighted to welcome Onesto to stud as he represents a unique opportunity for us, and a first-rate profile for French breeders and the French stallion ranks,” Chambure added.

A syndicate will be created for Onesto's stallion career, with some shares available. His stud fee will be announced in due course.
