Group 1 Stradbroke Winner

UNDER THE LOUVRE is a Gr.1 winner from the powerful PIVOTAL sire line.

He was an exceptional racehorse on the track retiring with more than $1.8 million in earnings.

Incredibly, from 22 starts in black type races, UNDER THE LOUVRE either won or placed in 15, including victory in the Gr.1 Stradbroke Handicap where he defeated 8 Gr.1 winners. He was one of the fastest horses of his generation with exceptional closing sectionals.

UNDER THE LOUVRE offers an outcross to DANEHILL line mares. He is the best performer by Gr.1 winner EXCELLENT ART and grandson of outstanding speed influence PIVOTAL. Matched up with DANEHILL, PIVOTAL has produced a consistently high ratio of Stakes performers to runners.

From two crops to race, UNDER THE LOUVRE has produced 2yo and 3yo winners including Cadboll, Under The Dunes, Honkytonk Diva and the multiple-winning Art By Concorde.

His yearlings have also been well supported at the sales with a 90% clearance rate from the past two Magic Millions QTIS March Sales (18 sold from 20).
