Dairy House Stud recruits Prince Flori

DAIRY House Stud in Wiltshire has a new recruit for the 2012 breeding season: German Group 1 winner Prince Flori.

The eight-year-old son of Lando entered stud in his native Germany at Gestuet Ohlerweiherhof this year but has moved to stand alongside Crosspeace and Septieme Ciel.

Prince Flori was sent off at odds of 40-1 when beating Oriental Tiger into second by three lengths in the Grosser Preis von Baden at three.

He won f0ur other Pattern races, including the Group 2 Grosser Mercedes-Benz Preis, in which he had Egerton and Schiaparelli behind.

Prince Flori is out of the winning Nebos mare Princess Liberte, making him a half-brother to Listed-winning hurdler Prince Nico.

"This is very exciting," Dairy House Stud owner Kin Young said, "since I have always been a fan of the German blood and especially Lando ever since we saw him in France."

Prince Flori's fee has been set at £2,000 with concessions will be offered to approved mares and to breeders sending more than one mare to the stud.

"We will be having an open day in the new year but we always welcome visitors to view the stallions," added Dairy House Stud's Rob Young.

Prince Flori's  purchase was arranged by Richard Venn Bloodstock.
