Brazilian-bred US star Leroidesanimaux (Candy Stripes-Dissemble, by Ahonoora) sired his 1st winner when Marfach (runner-up in his penultimate run) won by 1.5-lengths in County Roscommon, Ireland. The winnner was trained by Jim Bolger & is a half-brother to multiple Gr1-winner Gourmet Girl. At one stage slated to shuttle to Australia, Leroidesanimaux has just completed the 2009 breeding season at Stonewall Farm Stallions in Kentucky where he stood for US$17,500. According to thoroughbredtimes.com, Leroidesanimaux has 71 2YOs in his first crop. He won 9 of his 13 starts, including 2 Gr1s & earned the Eclipse Award as champion turf male.
