In the footsteps of giants..

He is one of the top 15 National Hunt sires with only two crops of racing age.

This is no mean feat. Also, COKORIKO already boasts a number of Stakes horses, on the flat and over jumps, in France and across the Channel. His secret ? His offspring have precocity and a natural jumping ability. What more could you ask for? Why, to break the records!

And he has done so. COKORIKO was the most active sire in 2018, covering 234 mares, and in 2019, when he covered 211. Quality and quantity: he is following in the footsteps of the giants.

So young and already a leader… This is the paradox of the best and COKORIKO’s personal signature.
