Nom Du Jeu transfers to Australia

Former NZ based stallion Nom Du Jeu has joined the Jindera Park roster in NSW.

Studmaster Brett Cavanough has installed the 11 year-old Group 1 winning son of Montjeu at his property which is situated 15km north of Albury-Wodonga.

Cavanough, who pre-trained for Peter Moody until earlier this year, will stand him alongside Fast ‘N’ Famous, Duporth and Illustrious Blue.

Nom Du Jeu won his only start as a two year-old at Pukekohe and returned the following season to claim the G1 AJC Derby (2400m) and G3 Waikato Guineas (2000m).  He was also runner-up in the G1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and G1 Caulfield Cup.

Nom Du Jeu retired to Fairdale Stud in New Zealand and sired his first winner when the Colin Little trained gelding Millau scored at Sale in March 2015.  He broke through in black-type ranks courtesy of Alcaldesa in the LR Wanganui Guineas earlier this season.

His stud fee has been set at $4,400 (inc gst) for his first book in Australia.
