At stud she has produces 4 to race for 4 winners, including 12 times winner Tableaux (a full brother to Pixerecourt) and recent winner Northern Bliss (with Nigel Blackiston). This is the female family of stakes winners LEE'S BID (grand dam), ULTRA SOUND, TARTAN TIGHTS & SEQUEL SOUND.

Pixerecourt has a wonderful temperament and has no vices. Not served last year due to a late foaling she is a trouble free breeder and ready for an early cover this year. Her foals have her great temperament, size and are impressive. Her last 2 colts will be given every chance (by ARTIE SCHILLER & SWIFT ALLIANCE).

For those who like pedigrees, Pixerecourt has a double cross of the blue hen mare Eight Carat (a much sort after ancestor that goes with eg SHOOTING TO WIN, DEEP FIELD admirably. Duplications of Eight Carat have produced an excellent number of stakes winners).

This mare deserves your attention.
