Montjeu’s brilliant Epsom Derby-winning son Pour Moi will stand at Grange Stud for the 2017 season under the Coolmore N.H. banner. With his first crop just turned four, Pour Moi has only had a handful of runners under National Hunt rules but is already sire of two smart hurdle winners in recent weeks. Coeur de Lion has won twice for Alan King and is Cheltenham bound either for the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle or the Grade 3 Fred Winter while Quids In was a 13-length winner of a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter for up-and-coming trainer Oliver Greenall. Purchasers of his stock at the Horses-in-Training Sales last Autumn included Harold Kirk/Willie Mullins, Tom Malone, Philip Hide and Highflyer Bloodstock.
A son of Montjeu out of a daughter of Darshaan who produced another classic performer in Gagnoa, Pour Moi is bred on a similar cross to the recently deceased Fame And Glory. A fee will be announced at a later date.
