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 finish the season on a high with a very pleasing second at Kempton. Having to deal with very uncompromising, wide draw, he travelled smoothly throughout the race and looked like he was going to grab the win coming to the line. With 100 yards to go, he was swallowed up and mugged on the line but at odds of 40/1 it was an extremely pleasing result. Tahitian Prince has an exciting future ahead of him as a three year old for us and Richard Hannon.
