First foal for Derby winner Pour Moi

Island Dreams (Giant’s Causeway), purchased for 190,000 guineas by Tony Nerses on behalf of Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar at the 2012 Tattersalls December Sale, foaled a bay colt by Pour Moi this morning at Blue Diamond South, the owners’ stud in Newmarket. “He’s a correct, quality foal; we’re very happy with him,” said Nerses. Pour Moi (Montjeu) was a dramatic last-to-first winner of the 2011 Epsom Derby providing André Fabre with his first success in the race and was favourite for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe until sustaining an injury during his preparation.
