“Impressive winners Cadboll and Under The Dunes have a great future in front of them, both highly regarded in one of Australia’s leading stables.

“It won’t be long before we see many more winners from this Group 1 winning stallion going by the reports we are receiving from stables and bloodstock agents.

“Under The Louvre is producing athletic, strong and powerful types with good actions and importantly terrific attitudes to their training.”
