Montjeu

Montjeu

Montjeu, the highest-rated racehorse ever by the great Sadler’s Wells has died this morning at Coolmore Stud after a short illness which was due to complications from an overwhelming septicaemia.

The sire of three Epsom Derby winners including last year’s brilliant winner Pour Moi, as well as Camelot, the favourite for this year’s edition, Montjeu was one of the best stallions in the world and in 2011 he sired 15 individual Group/Graded winners in the northern hemisphere, which was the equal of Galileo.

Montjeu will best be remembered for his incredible wins in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes as well as his runaway victories in the French and Irish Derbies.
