Old Chap Tame goes back to Normandy.

04 December 2019

Born at Denis Brohier's place, the Selle Français stallion Old Chap Tame (Carthago x Quidam de Revel x Lieu de Rampan) exploded onto the scene under the saddle of Eugénie Angot and joined the French team. Together, they won the Nations Cup in Aachen, finished second in the Hickstead Cup and the Nations Cup Final in Barcelona. The stallion then moved on to Edwina Tops-Alexander’s stables with whom he came second in the Shanghai Grand Prix. He then finished his career in the Emirates, before being bought by the Coata family a few months ago. At 17 years old, they decided to give him a nice retirement in Normandy in partnership with the Ibreed Agency and Stal de Muze. He will be stationed at the Haras de Circée, alongside Malito de Reve (Cavalor Cumao) and Querlybet Hero (Baloubet De Rouet).

His two maternal half-brothers, Plagiat (Elan De La Cour) and Rubis Tame (Diamant De Semilly), have also progressed internationally. It’s none other than the famous line of Narcos II, Quat'sous and Dictée.

Despite very limited progeny on the ground, several are already performing on the international scene, such as a certain Ballerina Tame, whose dam is none other than the other former star of Tammerville Stud, Parenthèse Tame, and Calgary Tame, son of the great international winner Davendy S, who was ridden by Eugénie Angot and then Jessica Springsteen.
