Author of a remarkable season on the slopes thanks to his production, the horse from Quesnay Intello completed his superb form with a second Gr.1 winner. Former “Wertheimer”, the famous Adhamo was much needed on the American turf of Monmouth Park for Chad Brown and Flavien Prat, after having made it through a real phase across the Atlantic.
Adhamo, new Gr.1 winner for Intello
The winner of the Prix la Force (Gr.3), placed in the Prix Eugène Adam (Gr.2) and a candidate for the Poule d’Essai des Poulains, Adhamo used to be one of the good 3-year-olds of his generation in 2021 at Freddy Head. Reasonably coveted to sell Arc, it joined the boxes of Chad Brown, American turf genius, after being bought for 250,000 euros by Hubert Guy. Very prominent since his arrival in the United States, with several podiums in the Gr.1s, the former “Wertheimer” won the United Nation Stakes (Gr.1) yesterday on the turf of Monmouth Park, being ridden by Flavien Prat. It’s a good wink, as Flavien has been Wertheimer’s 2nd jockey & brother stable for a while, especially associated with good Indonesian in his success in the Prix Marcel Boussac (Gr.1) in 2013.
Chad Brown and Flavien Prat, architects of Adhamo’s success in Monmouth Park
The maid’s son Foreign tunesMatron’s grandson GwensebAdhamo was clearly born very well, and crowned his father’s Wertheimer crossbreeding Nerd. Currently a full-time fighter at Haras du Quesnay, after the match between France and Cheveley Park Stud in England, the white and blue shirt champion is making an impressive comeback in 2022, crowned with this second success. at the top level for one of the products. He launched his first production good Intellogent, winner of the Jean Prat Prize, and is still on the radar of people with major disabilities in the UK this year at just 7 years old.
In our ranking of French stallions, Intello is in 5th place, and has already ranked among the winners this year. His production was counted as 10 in July, including this Gr.1 in the US with Adhamo. Above all, Intello has come back strong with very good horses like in his youth Junko and French DJ, both winners at the team level for the first time this season. Regal Reality, Brainy Dawn, Smart Bubblesor Pao Altoare all horses of his age from his works that continue to shine at the highest level throughout Europe.
The great feature of Intello is to provide the last ride horses, that is all terrain and distance. He himself showed this extreme versatility in the race. A group winner over 1600m, but also placing two Gr.1s in the same distance, he was of course impressive in the Jockey Club over 2000m, and 3rd in the Arc over 2400m. At age 3 on his flagship flight propelled him to Haras, but as we look back at his children’s generation, we tell ourselves that being 4 years old can be something extraordinary. However, Intello got off to a good start at Haras, before going through a slow couple of years. Since last year, he has slowly regained the pace that has allowed him to become one of the most established sires in France.
Intello has covered about 60 mares over the past two years and next year will be represented by a large generation of 2-year-olds, formed when he finally returns to Quesnay in 2020. Son of Galileo, being prolific, and still young at 12, it is certainly not too late for the stallion from Quesnay to establish itself as one of France’s finest breeders.
