Sire of Tatenen retired from stud duties
LOST World, sire of this season's exciting novice chaser Tatenen, has been retired by Harasde Victot from stallion duties due to health problems. However, he is likely to cover a small number of mares on a private basis.
The 17-year-old son of Last Tycoon, who landed the Grand Criterium during his racing career, has been represented by only four stakes performers on the Flat. However, he has enjoyed a successful career as a jumps stallion, with the likes of Nickname, Tatenen, Piraya and County Zen to his name.
Taking his place at Haras de Victot is Lost World's highest-rated jumps performer Nickname, who stamped himself as a leading chaser in France and Ireland with 18 wins from 31 starts including three at the highest level. The nine-year-old will stand his first season at €2,500.
