It’s not a lot of French horses we’ve had in our stable. But the two that stand out are Indigo and Lariyda. Both owned by Shaker Stable and both bought at auction in France.
Lariyda (Dr. Fong-Luriyva) was first in the stable and was a horse we all liked immediately as was the case with Indigo (Falco-Blanche), when she came along later.
Both Ladies unfortunately had issues that made a continuation of their racing carreer impossible. The good part of this is, that both mares have come to good homes as broodmares.
Lariyda has found a new home at Hjortebo Stud and is now in foal with Center Divider (USA). As you can see, she looks fabulous and the word has it, she’s the leading lady in the paddock. We’re very pleased as she is greatly missed, as is Indigo. We knew from the beginning where Lariyda was going, so no big deal to check up on her.

It was quite a diffrent story with Indigo. She was the favorite of one of the girls at the stable (Bechmann Racing) and she loved her dearly and still misses her a lot, as do I. She was determind to find out, what had happend to her. Only yesterday did she find her, after quite the detective work.
Indigo is in Ireland and is in foal by Camelot (Montjeu – Tarfah). Just for your information, one covering is 25,000 Euro! We couldn’t be more pleased for our lovely horse, that she has a good home, where she is valued.
We’re looking forward to seeing both mares foals, when that time comes. And if you’re lucky you’ll get to see them too – watch this space.
As an afterthought, I wonder why the name of the buyer (new owner) is not put into the sportssystem, when the horse is in there anyway and it states they have been exported to…..If you started why not finish, and I’d think the whole deal is in the system anyway since they need the passport and everything. Maybe someone can answer why not+ Not a lot of extra minutes to put the rest of the info.
