De Gaulle (AUS)

2014 Exceed And Excel (Danehill) x Response (Charge Forward)
de gaulle

Impeccable breeding! A son of Champion Sire & Sire of Sires in Exceed And Excel (205 stakes winners of $250 million), De Gaulle is a half brother to Group 1 Golden Slipper winner Estijaab, while another half brother sold for $2,250,000 million to Coolmore at Easter '22. Although showing immense talent in the stables of Peter & Paul Snowden, De Gaulle was sadly unraced due to a tendon injury. De Gaulle is the ideal opportunity for the 'breed to race' : high class blood lines at a very reasonable price.

Smart Debut Winner for De Gaulle

De Gaulle


De Gaulle


De Gaulle

Quilly Park’s Richard Anderson is having success in Macau with two horses, including three-year-old Aeroport which is by the stallion De Gaulle that he part-owns.

Anderson bred Aeroport which is out of Quilly Park’s mare Varone (Holy Roman Emperor x Sorren Tessa).

After five starts in South Australia for a second, Anderson decided to try his luck in Macau.

But it’s been four-year-old Yuanno (Pierro x Volted) that has been the star for Anderson and majority owner Yuan Wenzhong.

The four-year-old won a 2000m maiden at Ararat for Cranbourne trainer Trevor Rogers who raced the horse seven times.

“In Australia, we need the speed on all the time,” Anderson said.

“They stack them up here and because he had a few knee issues, if he is striking the ground hard, he jars up.

“But if he is free-flowing and rolling, he doesn’t feel it so we thought we’d send him up there to Macau and have a go at the Macau Derby.”

Since arriving in Macau last year, Yuanno has so far raced six times for three wins, one second, one third and a fourth and has collected more than AUD$120,000 in prizemoney.

And Yuanno is set to tackle some rich races after his recent victory in the Macau Derby Trial (G3).

The gelding’s next target races are the Macau Guineas on 18 June and the Macau Derby on 17 July.

Yuanno’s Derby Trial victory secured the gelding’s place in the G1 Derby (1800m) which carries prizemoney of around AUD$400,000.

Anderson said Aeroport won his maiden and beat two horses that had won a million dollars in local money.

Aeroport gave De Gaulle, which stands at Bombora Downs, his second winner.

“Madame Du Gast gave him his first winner (in January) at Flemington, so the stallion has had seven runners for two winners and three placegetters,” Anderson said.

“I decided to send Aeroport to Macau because he is a front-runner based on all his track work and everything he was doing. When he was with Jon O’Connor (Morphettville trainer) he had to lead or had to be sitting up on the speed and he just wants to go one speed this horse.”

Anderson said all the attention had been on Yuanno who had become something of a superstar since arriving in Macau.

He said they had to make sure he acclimatised to the conditions and luckily he did.

“If there is a chance of winning the Macau Derby then there is the chance of going to Hong Kong to race because you’ve raced and won,” Anderson said.

“And that’s the dream of Mr Yuan (Wenzhong).”

Anderson is hopeful that Aeroport’s win will attract some local interest in the stallion’s progeny in Macau.

And he said that Warrnambool trainer Symon Wilde had bought Madame Du Gast’s full sister for $115,000 at this year’s Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

Anderson said it was a great return on a $5500 service fee.
