A FANTASTIC DEBUT

All that we had been impatiently waiting for, COKORIKO provided with style ! His first crop are lighting up the racetracks, even where unlooked for! How else to describe the performances of Lisa de Vassy on the flat, with a Listed place (3rd in the Prix Rose de Mai L.)? On the jumping scene, he already has a classic performer with POLIRICO, who was his first runner and first winner (Prix d’Essai à Compiegne), before taking the Prix Congress Gr.2 and the Prix Général de Saint-Didier Gr.3. Several of his offspring have shone at Auteuil, such as FLYING STARTANDCO (Prix Finot L.) and PAT DU PONT (Prix Paul’s Cray). These excellent results have shot COKORIKO to the top of the list of first season sires. Fantastic! The jumping gene: it is one to be believed in and the supporters of COKORIKO has plenty of reason to do so!
