Vadamos joins Coolmore's NH roster
on 15 January 2021
The son of Monsun has a very similar profile to Maxios, who has proved such a hit with NH breeders

Vadamos has been purchased by Coolmore from Tally-Ho Stud and will stand under the N.H. banner at Grange Stud for the 2021 season at a fee of €6,000.

The French-bred has a very similar profile to the popular Maxios, who joined the ranks at Castlehyde last year, being a winner of the Group 1 Prix du Moulin de Longchamp and a son of leading NH influence Monsun.

Racing for owner/breeders Haras de Saint Pair, Vadamos is out the listed race winner Celebre Vadala who ran in the colours of the Aga Khan as did her half-brother Valixir, winner of the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes and the Group 1 Prix d’Ispahan.

In addition to winning the Moulin, Vadamos won the Group 2 Prix du Muguet and was a comfortable winner of the Group 3 Prix Messidor, all these wins coming over a mile.

“Vadamos always impressed me with his raw talent,” said his trainer André Fabre. “It is well documented that no other horse in my yard could beat him in the mornings and his final 200 metre time in the Moulin of 10.47secs is absolutely top-class.”

The first crop of Vadamos have just turned three and include no less than 14 individual winners at two years. Amongst the higher-profile performers is the Karl Burke-trained Spycatcher who was a half-length second to subsequent Group 1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Gear Up in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes at York.

Joseph O’Brien’s dual winner Messidor holds an entry in the Irish 1000 Guineas while other first crop juveniles scored for the likes of Andrew Balding, Henry de Bromhead, Stan Moore, Ralph Beckett, Jamie Osborne and Richard Hannon.

Second crop yearlings by Vadamos at the 2020 sales realised up to 220,000gns.

“Vadamos is a smashing looking horse who has made an excellent start with his first runners and we’re delighted to get him,” said Grange Stud Manager Albert Sherwood.
