Freshman sire Scissor Kick will travel to France for the northern hemisphere season after he completes serving his first book of mares this spring.
The Arrowfield stallion is a son of champion sire Redoute’s Choice who stood two seasons in France.
Nicolas de Chambure, general manager of Haras d’Etreham, negotiated a deal to shuttle Scissor Kick to France during a recent visit to Australia.
“Redoute’s Choice was really well received when he spent two years in France and I think French and European breeders were very impressed by the quality of his stock,” de Chambure said.
“I was therefore very keen to find one of his sons and Scissor Kick has everything I was looking for.”
Scissor Kick won two Group Three races during his 13-start career and finished a close second in the 2014 Group One Golden Rose.
