Nom du Jeu to Stand in Queensland
Tara Madgwick - Sunday, 9 July 2017
Switched to the Chris Waller stable from New Zealand last year, promising four year-old Liapari scored a stylish win at Warwick Farm on Saturday providing a timely advertisement for his sire Nom du Jeu, who has relocated to Queensland.

Liapari wins at Warwick FarmLiapari posted his second metropolitan win from his past three starts when saluting by three quarters of a length in the Benchmark 93 event over 1600 metres as favourite.

"He's a consistent horse. Chris has found the key to him," said winning rider Hugh Bowman.

"He won a few in the off peak during the summer, he put him away when the better horses are around and he's brought him back and he's racing very well."

Liapari has already won over $300,000 in prizemoney and there appear to be many more wins in store.

His sire Nom du Jeu won the 2008 Group I ATC Australian Derby and initially stood at stud in New Zealand before transferring to Australia last year.

Nom du JeuFrom small books of mares, the top class son of Montjeu (IRE) has sired 42 winners from 105 runners headed by stakes-winner Alcaldesa, stakes-placed Athena and smart winners such as Luke, Bee Tee Junior, Victory Drive and of course Liapari.

Another bright prospect is lightly raced three year-old Ted, who won two of three starts including a seven length win at the Sunshine Coast before being sold to Hong Kong where he will join the stable of leading trainer John Size.

From Group I winner Prized Gem, Nom du Jeu is bred in the purple and is the only son of world renowned staying sire Montjeu (sire of leading NZ sire Tavistock) standing in Queensland and one of only two in all of Australia.

He stands at Raheen Stud at a fee of $3,300 with contact details below.
