After a brilliant siring career at Cre Run Farm, Nivour de Cardonne has gone to Texas in summer of 2012. We thank his owner HH Sheik Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum, Shadwell Stud, and Race Street Management for allowing us the opportunity to host Nivour at our farm. The daughters we have from Nivour at Cre Run, A SECOND WIND, Finest Our and LATER ALA GATOUR and others, will continue to carry on his legacy for us in our own breeding program, as well as his son OUR MACHINE with his 3rd crop of foals already on the ground and first of racing age coming 2013.
de Cardonne first was an outstanding racehorse. His record is
4/17(6-5-2), $302,000. His biggest win came as a 5-year-old
when he won the richest, most prestigious Arabian race in the
world, the Kahayla Classic run on Dubai World Cup Day. Then
to further prove his durability, he finished second in the same
race as a 7-year-old.
He has brought some of the best available French lines to American breeders. He is by the foundation race sire of France, Manganate, sire of many stakes winners, including VANESSA DU LOUP (California
Champion), DORMANE (1st Dubai S., etc.), DJENDEL
(1st Emirs Cup, etc.), MADJEL (1st Polish Derby, etc.).
is out of an unraced daughter of Baroud III and from one of
the finest French female families. She is the dam of French
stakes winner, BAROUR DE CARDONNE and granddam of JEHOL
DE CARDONE. His dam is a half-sister to RUBIS DE CARRERE.
From his first 2 foal crops, NIVOUR DE CARDONNE sired 2 Darley winners: OUR MACHINE (Darley Champion 3-Year-Old Colt of 2007), and DIXIES VALENTINE (Darley Champion 3-Year-Old Filly of 2008). NIVOUR DE CARDONNE has also sired other stakes winners including LATER ALA GATOUR (winner of the Dr Sam Harrison Distaff), A SECOND WIND (winner of the Yellow Rose Arabian Stakes), A LADYS MAN (winner of the Delaware Park Arabian Cup Juvenile).
