Perennial French Champion sire and current third in the European standings, SIYOUNI will be made available at the Haras de Bonneval during the second semester of 2021, to cover mares on a Southern Hemisphere schedule at a fee of €100,000.
The Aga Khan stallion is notably sire of St Mark’s Basilica, Champion European juvenile last season and winner of the Poule d’Essai des Poulains on his seasonal debut earlier this month. The colt is one of three winners of the French Guineas sired by SIYOUNI alongside DREAM AND DO, winner of the French 1,000 Guineas last year, and ERVEDYA, winner of three Group Ones including the French 1,000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Among the progeny who played a part in SIYOUNI’s phenomenal ascension feature SOTTSASS, hero of the 2020 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Prix du Jockey Club in record time, as well as six time Group 1 winner and Prix de Diane heroine LAURENS.
SIYOUNI has already made a promising debut with his first runners in the Southern Hemisphere, as from only six runners to date, he counts four black-type performers and these include the Listed-winning juvenile See You In Spring. His progeny have proved popular in the sales ring in Australia, with his yearlings selling for up to Aus$550,000.
Out of a Listed-winning Danehill mare hailing from a talented Lagardère/Aga Khan line, SIYOUNI is by Pivotal, whose son Addeybb is the winner of three Group 1 contests in Australia as well as the Champion Stakes at Ascot in the United Kingdom.
