Grade one winning Desert Blanc (GB) has been sold to Jean Maxime Jarlan to take up stud duties at Haras du Hoguenet in France for the 2013 breeding season. Desert Blanc will stand at the same farm as his sire Desert Style. Bred by Haras du Mezeray, the horse is out of the half-sister to Group 2 winner, Signe Divin. Desert Blanc hails from the family of Group one winners Satwa Queen and Spadoun.
Desert Blanc proved his versatility by winning from 8 to 10 furlongs. From seven starts Desert Blanc was only off the board once, finishing his career with four wins, a second, and a third and earnings of $428,133.
“I fell in love with Desert Blanc from the first day I put tack on him. He was a true competitor and had he not been retired he may well have been the best turf horse in the U.S.A. this year. I think this horse has the potential to make a stallion”, said trainer Chad Brown.
Desert Blanc was the first G1 winner for Bradley Thoroughbreds Racing Ventures. He is a very special horse and we will never forget the thrills he gave our group of owners.
