High-class German colt Savoir Vivre given stud berth in France
Son of Adlerflug was just touched off in the German Derby
Having already welcomed more than 20 names to its ranks for 2018, France has yet another new stallion in the shape of the high-class German runner Savoir Vivre.
The five-year-old son of Adlerflug joins Haras de l'Abbaye near Limoges, once the home of the late Denham Red - whose son Un De Sceaux won his third Clarence House Chase at Ascot on Saturday.
He will stand at a fee of €1,500 for thoroughbreds or €1,300 for non-thoroughbreds.
Savoir Vivre was trained by Jean-Pierre Carvalho for owner-breeder Georg Baron von Ullmann.
He outran huge odds to be just touched off into second by Isfahan in the 2016 German Derby and showed that was no fluke when defeating Siljan's Saga, Erupt and Garlingari to take the Grand Prix de Deauville, before a very creditable eighth to Found in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
Savoir Vivre was not quite as good at four last year, but put up some decent performances when fourth in the Grand Prix de Deauville and Preis von Europa and second in the Gran Premio del Jockey Club.
He is a half-brother to Listed scorer Sussudio out of the Listed-winning Monsun mare Soudaine, a half-sister to the dam of the brilliant Stacelita.
