|Name:||Empire De Maulde (FR)|
Spanish Moon (FR) – Ondine de Brejoux (FR) by Murmure (FR)
The hunt far and wide for the next equine talent is never at a standstill and we are always searching. The little island of Corsica is one of our most recent and more unusual hunting grounds. Empire De Maulde arrived in November and has settled in to our routine well. He is a nice looking scopey horse who is very professional to work with and whose biggest asset looks to be his jumping, a real natural over obstacles, accurate and clean.
In Corsica - 6 starts 4 wins placed in all Flat starts (3-11211) winnings of £17,487.19 (biggest win £7,230.77)
By Spanish Moon who is the only son of El Prado (Sadler's Wells) standing in Europe, he was a Group 1 winner of the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (12f) and is sire of black-type horses under both codes under rules in England, Ireland and France. He had a relatively small pool of mares prior to last year’s successes and it's great to see him with a full book of mares which includes our own Mon Ammie.
Dam Ondine de Brejoux has produced seven foals who have amassed eight wins and 16 places to date. Grand Dam Tinkerbell produced 8 foals with 5 wins.
His form will be hard to equate over here having only run on a small island with a limited pool of horses so it will be interesting to look at how he progresses but you can't fault his achievements to date.
