The news


The old lion passed away


On December 11th , BACARELLO, aged 25 died in Normandy where he had been spending a happy retirement with his pals for the last 13 years.


BACARELLO was one of our best jump horses: 45 races, 33 times in the money including 7 wins at Auteuil.

He started his career in 1992 finishing modestly 4th in a flat race at Savenay and concluded it in 2001 by winning a chase at Auteuil at the age of 12.


He was a very attractive horse, with an independent and keen temperament. He was feared by the morning riders as he carried them away every morning.


Farewell champion.
