Four American-based stallions-Cuvee, Yonaguska, Lion Heart and Dehere–and Irish-based Powerscourt are scheduled to arrive in Turkey this week to stand at stud as the property of the Turkish Jockey Club.
According to Kentucky-based bloodstock agent Ric Waldman, who advised and assisted the Turkish Jockey Club in the acquisitions, Dehere is being leased while the other four stallions have been purchased by the Turkish Jockey Club. Dehere and Lion Heart previously stood at Coolmore/Ashford Stud in Kentucky, while Powerscourt was scheduled to stand at Coolmore in Ireland after beginning his career at Ashford. Cuvee was at Gainesway, while Yonaguska stood at Elite Thoroughbreds in Louisiana after previously standing at Vinery in Kentucky. The American-based horses are expected to arrive Wednesday with Powerscourt due later in the week.
“All stallions are already extremely popular with Turkish bfreeders and are expected to stand to full books of mares,” Waldman said.
