Ruler Of The World arrives at Bouquetot

October 30, 2019


Al Shaqab Racing & Coolmore Stud, joint owners of Epsom Derby Gr.1 winner and Group 1 sire RULER OF THE WORLD, are pleased to announce his relocation to Haras de Bouquetot, France.

RULER OF THE WORLD, an impeccably-bred son of Galileo and Love Me True (Kingmambo), was named European Champion 3-year-old after an undefeated streak of three victories, winning on his debut at The Curragh before taking the Chester Vase Gr.3 and the Epsom Derby Gr.1, on his third career start only.

On his autumnal return RULER OF THE WORLD was a close runner-up in the Prix Niel Gr.2 at Longchamp, before reaching his best Timeform rating of 128 when third in the Champion Stakes Gr.1 at Ascot. At 4-years-old, he went on to win the Prix Foy Gr.2 in race record time at Longchamp - faster than Waldgeist, Postponed, Sarafina or Montjeu.

From a first crop of only 45 live foals, due to an injury during the breeding season, RULER OF THE WORLD sired the triple Group 1 victrix IRIDESSA, winner of the Fillies Mile Gr.1 at 2 as well as the Pretty Polly Stakes Gr.1 and the Matron Stakes Gr.1 at 3. He has also produced the 2-year-old blacktype filly The World Is Your as well as Czech Stakes winner ALBATROS.

The sire of 14 winners from 37 runners in 2019, RULER OF THE WORLD currently has one of the highest rates of prize money per runner within the list of leading 2nd crop sires in Europe.

Benoit Jeffroy, Stud Manager at Haras de Bouquetot, says:

« We are delighted to welcome an Epsom Derby winner by Galileo, the sire of multiple Gr.1 winner Iridessa from a very small first crop, here at Haras de Bouquetot. It’s a great opportunity for breeders to have access to a Group 1 producer by Galileo in France. »

RULER OF THE WORLD will be standing at a fee of €6,000 Live Foal in 2020. He will be available for viewing at Haras de Bouquetot, France during the Deauville Arqana December Sales.
