He never finished further back than third at Auteuil. Not just in two or three starts but in fourteen! Auteuil was Tunis’ playground. He was the main rival to MASTER DINO in 2018 amongst the 4 year old generation. TUNIS remains the only horse to have finished in front of him on four occasions, in the first half of the season: the other champion trained by Guillaume Macaire. We have here a performer of the highest level, yet atypical. His pedigree, a mix of German and Polish bloodlines, guarantees a new and different option to other French sires. His maternal bloodline has produced numerous stallions, the ultimate form of selection. Here is a demanding line that is both strong and eclectic. With TUNIS, one needs to think big, to look beyond the norm, and to cross the boundaries of the French breeding norm. From this angle, TUNIS is a jewel, unlike any other.
