Dollar du Rouet joins Gregory Wathelet

03 November 2021

It was planned, and now it’s done! Trained under Gilles Botton's saddle, the Selle Français stallion will now be ridden by Grégory Wathelet. It’s a well-known pathway which has already produced results, since it was also the one followed by Conrad and Corée de Hus before him.

Eight-year-old Dollar du Rouet (Chacco-Blue x Quaprice Bois Margot) is a grandson of the full sister to the iconic stallion Baloubet du Rouet. After making a strong impression at six, the imposing bay devoted himself to breeding at seven. He has just made his return to competition with his long-time rider, Gilles Botton. The new pair is making their mark in Vilamoura, with a view to having a career at the highest level.
