The news


L’ALLIER passed away.


Our first mare, thanks to whom we started breeding, died peacefully at the age of 28.

Born and bred at Haras du Bois Aux Proux by Daniel and Martine Chassagneux, this filly by Rose Laurel was quite honest as a racing mare: 6 wins and 11 places (Craon, Le Lion d’Angers, Corlay…).

She was very lucky, for example at Pau first time out, at the last fence she was in fifth position when the first four fell and…..she won! Same scenario at Corlay during the Grand Chase, the two favourites fell…and she won!

The prize money won by her progeny is stunning: 1.155.450 euros! Especially when you know that she had only four of her progeny who ran: Gondleen, Chriseti, Kusea and L’Artiste Français.


On the photograph we are all quite young, it was when she won at Corlay in 1991.
