GROUP 1 WINNING SPRINTER by Wootton Bassett.

HIGH CLASS SPRINTER, WINNER OF THE PRIX DE L’ABBAYE Gr.1 & Prix Texanita Gr.3 at 3 years old, and a multiple Group performer at 2.

THE ONLY FRENCH-TRAINED 3-YEAR-OLD COLT to win the Prix de l’Abbaye Gr.1 of recent times. A sprint Gr.1 winner at 3 years old, WOODED follows in the steps of great sires of this era such as Danehill, Pivotal, Green Desert.

A SON OF SIRE SENSATION WOOTTON BASSETT, out of the prolific family of Firm Friend. 


Wooded stood out from the day he arrived for his good looks and ability. He’s always been very sound, never missing a day’s work. As a racehorse he had so many qualities, class, courage and speed and he fully deserved his Group 1 win this year.”  

Francis-Henri Graffard,

“As a sprint Group 1 winner at 3-year-old, Wooded follows in the steps of great sires of this era such as Danehill, Pivotal, Green Desert.

He is an athletic mover of 1m67 (16.2 hh) with outstanding looks, and is a very balanced and correct horse with great depth.”

I'm very pleased with both my Wooded yearling colts at Maulepaire. Powerful without looking heavy, with good strong points and an even growth, they impress me with their balance both physically and mentally. They're decisively shaped for speed.

Wooded already striked me by his oustanding conformation and his excellent temper when I had him in pre-training. I've used Wooded since he's retired to stud and he brings exactly what I had hoped for to his progeny. I'm really glad I bought into him recently as it will allow me to use him even more.

Wooded is the legacy of the Ballymacoll family lines which I'm well familiar to. We can find in his progeny all the distinctive traits of this family with mental & physical abilities as well as toughness.

Our yearling by Wooded has fantastically progressed from foal to yearling. She's let down and gained scope and depth, she's full of class.  We're eagerly awaiting the foals to be born this season and will continue to support this stallion!

 We’re delighted with our Wooded foal out of Cry Baby, he is a powerful colt with quality and an exceptional mover!

We won’t hesitate to return to Wooded who seems to be great value for money.
