The famous stud was put up for sale by the Niarchos family.

The well-known French stud Haras de Fresnay-le Buffard has been put up for sale by the Niarchos family.

The late Stavros Niarchos purchased it from Marcel Boussac in 1979. No asking price has been set, but it is anticipated that many people from all over the world will be interested.

The family is still completely committed to its worldwide breeding and racing operation, which includes South Africa, Europe, the United States, Australia, and Japan.

The stud’s famous light and dark blue Niarchos silks were worn by Miesque, Kingmambo, Sulamani, Hernando, and Six Perfections on the racetrack.

At some point in their lives, the farm was home to 45 European Classic winners, seven winners of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, and seven winners of the Breeders’ Cup.

Alan Cooper, racing manager to the Niarchos Family, said: “It is emotional for the family to say goodbye to Fresnay, but as our racing and breeding interests have evolved over the years, we now have horses in a variety of international locations, which makes this the right move for us at this time.”
