Archipenko to shuttle
to Haras le Quebrada

GROUP 1 winner Archipenko has been leased by Lanwades Stud to stand the southern hemisphere season at Argentina's leading stud farm, Haras La Quebrada.

The stud, which has been crowned champion breeder in Argentina 17 times, also acts as the southern hemisphere base to American shuttlers El Corredor, Indygo Shiner and Mutakddim. It was previously the home of the ten-time champion sire Southern Halo.

Kirsten Rausing, the general manager of Lanwades Stud where Archipenko is serving his third season, said: "We are of course delighted to instigate this co-operation with one of South America's leading stud farms. Haras La Quebrada has been at the very forefront of the important Argentine thoroughbred industry for over 65 years, and it has bred the winners of more than 200 South American Group 1 races.

"Archipenko will be given excellent opportunities there, and we welcome this opportunity for two independent stud farms to co-operate at the very top level of International thoroughbred breeding."

Archipenko will enter quarantine in mid-June andwill return to Lanwades before Christmas.

The son of Kingmambo won six of 17 starts topped by the Group 1 Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Sha Tin and a trio of Group 2 races. He was also second in the Grade 1 Arlington Million.

Archipenko's first crop are yearlings. He is standing the current season at Lanwades Stud in Newmarket for £5,000.
