UNDER THE LOUVRE retires to stud with nine wins and 14 placings and more than $1.8 millions in prize money. Incredibily, from 22 starts in black type company.
Under the Louvre either won or placed in 15 races, including 1st in the BRC Stradbroke Handicap (Gr.1) and 2nd in the MRC Oakleigh Plate (Gr.1) and SAJC Goodwood Stakes (Gr.1)

Under the Louvre is the best performer by Gr.1 winner EXCELLENT ART, who stood a few seasons in Australia, and he is, in turn a son of the outstanding speed influence PIVOTAL.

Another interesting aspect of Pivotal is that matched up with DANEHILL, he is running at a massive 18% Stakes performer to runners. So, being totally free of Danehill, Under the Louvre offers a rare outcross for breeders.
Under the Louvre is a serious horse and is not only a coup for Queensland but for all breeders.  When his progeny is up for sale, buyers in other states will remember his performance.
