Attendu To Stand At Du Quesnay

By Daithi Harvey

Acclamation (GB) is already the sire of one stallion sensation in Dark Angel (Ire) and French breeders will now have domestic access to one of his sons with the news that Attendu (Fr) (Acclamation {GB}-Gwenseb {Fr}, by Green Tune) will stand at Haras du Quesnay in 2018. Trained by Carlos Laffon-Parias for the Wertheimer brothers, Attendu holds the distinction of being a group winner at 2, 3 and 4 years of age. He landed the G3 Prix La Rochette at Longchamp in 2015 and closed out his juvenile campaign with a third placing in the G1 Criterium International at Saint Cloud. Attendu added to his stakes tally in 2016 when accounting for Group 1 winners Esoterique (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}) and Territories (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) in the G3 Prix du Palais-Royal at Deauville over seven furlongs and he again showed his class earlier this year over a mile, also at Deauville, when he won the G3 Prix Quincey Barriere in August.

Attendu is the first son of Acclamation to stand in France and his dam Gwensab was a stakes-winning 2-year-old who has also produced the dual Group 2 winner Impassable (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), the stakes winner Foreign Tune (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and Spotify (Fr) (Redoute’s Choice {Aus}) who finished fourth in the G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains earlier this year. Attendu will be offered to breeders at a covering fee of €5,000 and will join the existing roster of Anodin (Ire), Dunkerque (Fr), Motivator (GB) and Youmzain (Ire) at Haras du Quesnay.
