This gorgeous horse was bought at the Arqana-Deaville Breeze Up Sales with Peter and Ross Doyle and is by the leading French based sire, SIYOUNI who is standing at the Aga Khan Stud. Tahitian Prince is out of a winning mare and is a half-brother to a black-type winner Art Of Raw who was sold for good money to Hong Kong. Siyouni, was the best French two-year-old of his generation and is the sire of the brilliant multiple Group I winner Laurens and the Jersey Stakes winner, Le Brivido. This horse is over 16 hands, has plenty of scope, a really good walk and did a very nice breeze.
Tahitian Prince will be trained by Richard Hannon in Collingbourne Ducis, Wiltshire. Richard’s father, Richard Hannon Snr trained some of Thurloe’s best horses including Nanoushka, Baltic Knight and Song of Passion. We are delighted to have such a nice horse to go into training at the historic Herridge.
