Spring carnival raider Vadamos (Fr) has been purchased to stand at Tally-Ho Stud in Ireland.
He will cover his first northern mares next year after returning from Australia where he holds a nomination for the G1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on November 5.
The Andre Fabre-trained stallion was last seen finishing a distant fourth to Winx in the G1 Cox Plate after carving out some quick sectionals in front at Moonee Valley.
Vadamos (5h Monsun – Celebre Vadala by Peintre Celebre) has been a model of consistency throughout his career, winning 8 times in 19 starts. The highlight so far has been the Group 1 victory in the Prix du Moulin at Chantilly, defeating the likes of Zelzal, Zarak and Dutch Connection.
“Vadamos has always impressed me with his raw talent,” Fabre said. “It’s well documented that no other horse in my yard could beat him in the mornings and his final furlong time in the Moulin of 10.47s is absolutely top-class.”
Bred by part-owners Haras de Saint Pair, Vadamos is one of 21 top-level winners by deceased German sire Monsun and comes from a female family of high-class horses nurtured by the Aga Khan, Jean-Luc Lagardere, and Haras de Saint Pair.
His current owners Andreas Putsch and John Camilleri of Fairway Thoroughbreds will both retain shares and support Vadamos. He will join a Tally-Ho roster that includes Mehmas, Kodiac, Sir Prancealot and Zebedee.
