Success to crow over
He is knocking on the door of the Top 5 leading jumps sires currently active in France, with only three generations of racing age!
His roll of honour increases in stature each year: In 2020 three more individual Group winners joined POLIRICO, in France (FLYING STARTANDCO) and also across the Channel (FIVE O’CLOCK, FAKIERA). Earlier this year, 2021 Thyestes hero COKO BEACH went on to win the Grade 2 Novice Chase at Navan a month later.
On home soil, JE DEVIENS MOI (L) as well as the four-year-old GRATOS DE L’ISLE (Gr.3 2nd at Auteuil) and HIGHLANDS D’ALLIER (Listed winner over fences) also added their names to the list of black-types.
His winners’ count continues to grow, as does the promise of his three-year-olds such as HADALINE, HOMME PUBLIC, HASHTAG VAL, HIDEO… Impossible to keep quiet about the success of COKORIKO!
