Esoterique To Visit Top French Sire
Triple Gr1 winner Esoterique (Danehill Dancer-Dievotchka, by Dancing Brave) will visit top French sire Le Havre this year, reports Racing Post. Trained by Andre Fabre, the Irish-bred Esoterique retired last year after winning 6 of her 22 starts, highlighted by top-flight wins in the Gr1 Prix Jacques Le Marois, Gr1 Prix Rothschild & Gr1 Sun Chariot Stakes. Le Havre (Noverre), a winner of the French Derby, stood his first four seasons at Haras de la Cauviniere in Normandy at a fee of just €5,000. But after producing dual Classic heroines Avenir Certain and La Cressonniere in his early crops, he is standing at €60,000 in 2017.
