Dundeel (NZ) x Mokoro
Trainer: Marc Chevalier (Hawkesbury)
TBB Racing are pleased to team up with Marc Chevalier Racing again to offer this lightly-raced Dundeel mare Moremi. We are rapt to be a part of the Chevalier Stable, based at Hawkesbury, and have found the ownership experience since being involved in his stable second-to-none.
TBB Racing currently has Pitavago with Marc Chevalier who unfortunately has been sent to the paddock for a minor issue after her impressive debut for the team after also being purchased online.
Moremi is such an exciting proposition. She is by star sire Dundeel, who is the sire of top-class performers such as Castelvecchio, Super Seth, Yourdeel, Atyaab, Victoria Quay and Ain'tnodeeldun just to name a few.
She has only had 8 starts for 6 placings as well as her last start fourth over 1900m. It is all ahead of her and all the waiting has been done.
Marc says "We were delighted to secure her for just $27,500 as we were prepared to go much higher than that for her."
"We are looking for the right horses to help build the profile of the stable since we started out on our own and we believe that this mare will not only provide plenty of win's on the track, she holds a lot of residual value with her pedigree page."
TBB Racing have backed Marc in right from the start and believe he has the experience and knowledge to really make the grade as a trainer. Marc has set up a base at Hawkesbury on a beautiful little property with excellent facilities backing onto the track.
"We feel as though we are really starting to gain some momentum with the small amount of horses we have on the books and we have been working hard to get some of them back to the races in excellent condition."
Marc Chevalier has only had the three career starters so far with Tri Nations finishing a close second on his debut for the new stable. Further proof that Marc is on the right track when selecting these tried horses.
Marc Chevalier grew up in France and worked for some of the most famous names in the thoroughbred world globally. He spent time at Sheik Hamdan's Shadwell Stud in England before returning to France to break in yearlings for HH The Aga Khan. The Aga Khan Stud is home to some of the best bloodlines and pedigree's in the world.
He made the move to Australia to work at Arrowfield Stud in what was meant to be a six month working holiday. It is now 10 years later.
Marc was always more interested in training but it was important to have a complete understanding of the horse before doing so. He left Arrowfield and took an opportunity to be Assistant Trainer to Gary Moore at Rosehill. Together they tasted Group 1 Glory with Takedown in the Winterbottom Stakes in 2016.
He then spent time at Lloyd Williams' state-of-the-art Macedon Lodge before being poached by Danny O'Brien to head his Flemington stable. Marc played an integral part in arguably the most in form stable in Victoria, if not Australia.
He has now made the bold move to set out on his own and TBB Racing are backing him right from the word go.
We have taken a share in Moremi, and have partnered with Marc Chevalier Racing. We would love for you to join us.
