Epsom Derby hero Pour Moi has arrived at his new Coolmore Stud base in Tipperary as he prepares to take up stallion duties.
The Andre Fabre-trained colt was retired last month after suffering a leg injury.
“Pour Moi is all class and quality – no doubt the best stallion prospect to come to Coolmore since Galileo,” Coolmore manager Harry King said.
Pour Moi’s victory at Epsom in June saw him sweep from the rear of the field to beat Treasure Beach, also in Coolmore ownership and subsequent winner of the Irish Derby, by a head, with young jockey Mickael Barzalona famously standing up in celebration before the line.
He had been favourite for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe before injury cut short his racing career.
