Horse Racing: Jockey-Club hero Canari to stand in Switzerland; BLOODSTOCK DESK.

Byline: Rachel Pagones, Amy Bennett and Nancy Sexton

BLUE CANARI, winner of the 2004 Prix du Jockey-Club, will stand his first season at Gestut Sohrenhof in Switzerland for SFr3,000.

The stud bought the five-year-old for 90,000gns at the Tatter-salls December sale last week.

Winner of the last Prix du Jockey-Club to be run over 1m4f, Blue Canari also beat the subsequent smart stayer Reefscape to win a 1m1f event as a two-year-old.

The son of Acatenango was also placed twice in Listed company, and retires as the winner of more than EUR720,000 in prize-money.

A EUR135,000 yearling, he is a half-brother to the Listed winner Blue Ksar and the Group 3-placed colt Crabapple, from the immediate family of Mtoto and Mutamam.
