Champs Elysees Sires First Winner
Impeccably-bred Gr1-winning stallion Champ Elysees (Danehill-Hasili, by Kahyasi) sired his inaugural winner when juvenile filly Avenue Gabriel (Champs Elysees-Vas Y Carla, by Gone West) won by a neck in a 7 furlong 2YO Maiden at The Curragh in Ireland. A son of Juddmonte Farms' champion broodmare Hasili (who has also produced the Gr1 winners Intercontinental, Heat Haze, Cacique & Banks Hill, as well as Gr1-performed leading sire Dansili & Gr1-placed Deluxe), Champs Elysees was crowned Horse of the Year in Canada, and retired with 3 Gr1 wins & 5 Gr1 placings.
