GRAND ECHEZEAUX
Zabeel - Richebourg (Vice Regal)

This Group 1 winning daughter of Pencarrow's fine and successful broodmare, Richebourg, was retired to the broodmare band in 2001 with a wonderful record of winning the Group 1 SAJC Australasian Oaks, as well as the Group 3 Lakewood Stud Stakes, and two other wins.

 

Grand Echezeaux's first foal was a bay colt by Danehill who sold at the 2004 Karaka Premier Sale for $1,100,000. He raced as Darci Brahma and with five Group 1 wins claimed the Champion Two- and Three-Year-Old titles and NZ Champion Sprinter title in 2007. He now stands as a stallion at The Oaks Stud. Her colt by Stravinsky was sold at Karaka for $2,200,000 in 2007 and, named Saperavi, now also stands at stud.

 

Her 2008 Redoute's Choice colt sold for $1,300,000 in 2010 at the Karaka Premier Sale, named Burgundy, he won five stakes races and was Group1 placed in the Telegraph Handicap and has been announced to stand his first season as a sire at Cambridge Stud in 2013.
