Too Darn Hot's half-brother De Treville transferred to Mezeray
Son of Oasis Dream was an 850,000gns Book 1 yearling
De Treville – a son of Oasis Dream who was the first foal out of brilliant racemare Dar Re Mi, thereby making him a half-brother to exciting two-year-old Too Darn Hot – will stand at Haras du Mezeray in Normandy next year.
The six-year-old covered around 30 mares in his first season at stud in France in 2018.
De Treville was an 850,000gns Tattersalls October Book 1 yearling purchase and entered training with Andre Fabre, for whom he won and finished second in the Group 3 Prix des Chenes at two.
At three he finished placed in a further three Group 3 contests – the Prix de Guiche, Prix Paul de Moussac and the Prix de la Porte Maillot.
De Treville's principal appeal as a stallion is his pedigree, though.
Oasis Dream is a noted sire of sires, with son Showcasing ranking as one of Europe's most exciting young stallions.
Dar Re Mi, meanwhile, is a half-sister to three other Group 1 winners in Rewilding, River Dancer and Darazari, and as well as Too Darn Hot – an impressive winner of all his three starts and an odds-on chance for the Darley Dewhurst Stakes on Saturday – has also produced the high-class fillies Lah Ti Dar and So Mi Dar at stud.
A brother to Too Darn Hot – also by Dubawi out of Dar Re Mi – is expected to raise the roof when he comes under the hammer at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale on Wednesday.
De Treville is the second new recruit to Mezeray this year after Taareef, a dual Group 2-winning son of Kitten's Joy.
