Le Sancy









Sire Line


Buzzard





Le Sancy gr c 1884 (Atlantic - Gem Of Gems, by Strathconan). Sire Line Buzzard. Family 4-h.

Bred at Haras De Martinvast, near Cherbourg, Normandy, by Baron Arthur De Schickler (1828-1919), Le Sancy was one of his best. Baron De Schickler won the Prix Du Jockey Club with Suzerain (br c 1865 The Nabob), Chêne Royal (b c 1889 Narcisse), Ragotsky (b c 1890 Perplexe) and Palmiste (gr c 1894 Le Sancy), and shared another win in a dead heat between his horse Sycomore (b c 1883 Perplexe) and Count Berteux's Upas.
 

Le Sancy as an older horse
 
Le Sancy was a half brother to the Prix Royal Oak winner Escarboucle (b f 1882 Doncaster), the dam of Poule D'Essai Des Poulains and Prix De La Foret winner Fra Angelico (b c 1889 Perplexe). His grandsire, the Derby winner Thormanby (ch c 1857 Melbourne or Windhound), was most likely a full brother to his 3° dam, Lady Hawthorn (b f 1853 Windhound).

Lightly raced as a two and three year old, he won one race each year, the Grand Prix de Dieppe and the Prix Daru respectively. In 1888 he won six, including the Prix D'Apremont at Chantilly and the Prix De Bois-Roussel at Fontainebleau. That year he also travelled to England where he finished third for the Lancashire Plate at Manchester. In 1889 he won ten, including the Prix D'Apremont for the second time, the Prix D'Ispahan, the Grand Prix De Deauville and the Prix D'Octobre. In 1890 he won nine, including the Prix De Deaville, the Grand Prix Du Sart and the Grand Prix De Deauville for a second time. Over the course of 1889 and 1890 he won nineteen consecutive races. In all he won 27 races from 43 starts, being placed nine times, and earning 365,137 French Francs.

Sources conflict and it is as yet impossible to confirm his turf record. The difficulty may be that he had 4 walkovers which are seemingly unreported.

In 1886 he started 4 times, winning the Grand Prix De Dieppe, finishing 2° for the Grand Criterium at Paris, and 3° in a small sprint.

In 1887 he won the Prix Daru at Paris, finished 2° for the Poule D'Essai Des Des Poulains at Paris and 2° for the Prix D'Octobre at Paris.

In 1888 he won the Prix De Courbevoie at Paris, won the Prix D'Apremont at Chantilly, won the Prix De Lonray at Paris, and won the Prix D'Escoville at Paris, he finished 2° for the Prix De Seine-Et-Marne at Fontainebleau, won the Prix Guillaume-Le-Conquérant at Deauville, finished 2° for the Grand Prix De Deauville, won the Prix De Bois-Roussel at Fontainebleau, and finished 3° for the Lancaster Plate at Manchester.

In 1889 he finished 2° for the Prix Des Sablons at Paris, won the Prix De Courbevoie at Paris, won the Prix D'Apremont at Chantilly, won the Prix De Lonray at Paris, and won the Prix D'Escoville at Paris, won the Prix D'Ispahan at Paris, the Prix Guillaume-Le-Conquérant at Deauville, won the Prix Des Dunes at Deauville, won the Grand Prix De Deauville, won the Prix De Bois-Roussel at Fontainebleau and won the Prix D'Octobre at Paris.

Le Sancy retired to stud at Haras De Martinvast perfectly sound and healthy. His stud fee, at 500 guineas, was equal to that of St. Simon (br c 1881 Galopin) in England. His best son may have been Le Sagittaire (ch c 1892), winner of the Grand Criterium, Prix Ganay, Prix Greffulhe, Prix Lupin and Prix Morny, and a champion sire in France in 1906. His most influential son was Le Samaritain.
 
Le Samaritain (FR)
gr c 1895 (Le Sancy - Clementina, by Doncaster). Family 2-h.
Le Samaritain was also bred at Haras De Martinvast. He was a full brother to Hebron (gr c 1900), winner of the Criterium De Maisons-Laffitte.  His 2° dam, Clemence (ch f 1865 Newminster), was also the 2° dam of the mighty New Zealand-bred, Carbine (b c 1885 Musket). Less successful than his sire, he won 6 races, for about 10f to 16f, including, at 3 years, the Prix Daru, Prix Des Acacias, Grand Prix De Deauville and Grand St. Leger De France. He ran in England as a 3 year old, going unplaced for the Duke Of York Stakes, and as a 4 year old, going unplaced for the City And Suburban Handicap. In the stud he got Roi Herode (gr c 1904), who in turn sired The Tetrarch (gr c 1911). Noted French bloodstock dealer Cheri Holborn arranged his sale to Señor Carlos Reyes and he was sent to Uruguay and Argentina. He died in 1920.

Le Sancy also sired another horse called Le Samaritain (gr c 1893, from Sister To Distingue, by Rosicrucian). This horse was owned by Benito Villanueva and was first called Leopard. He was sent to Argentina in 1895. He appears in the pedigrees of Manantial (br c 1955 Gulf Stream) and I'm Glad (bbr c 1978 Liloy). He died in 1913.
 
  Le Justicier (b c 1892, Le Sancy - North Wiltshire, by Parmesan), bred and owned by Baron De Schickler, won a number of races in France, including the Prix Des Chênes, Prix De Conde, Prix Du Cedre, Prix De Seine-Et-Marne, Prix D'Hédouville, Prix D'Escovil, Prix de Bois Roussel and Prix Guillaume-Le-Conquérant. His finest victory was probably the 1895 10f Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park, in which he defeated Mr Russel's Whittier (br c 1892 Laureate) and Lord Ellesmere's None The Wiser (ch f 1891 Wisdom) by 3 lengths.
 
Le Sancy also got two Prix Du Jockey Club winners, Ex Voto (b c 1900) and Palmiste (gr c 1894) a champion sire in Russia, two Poule D'Essai Des Pouliches winners, Xylene (b f 1901) and Semendria (gr f 1897), the latter the winner of the Prix De Diane as well, and one Prix Royal Oak winner, Chambertin (gr c 1894). His daughter, Toison D'Or (gr f 1901) was the dam of Alcantara (b c 1908 Perth), winner of the Prix Du Jockey Club, Prix La Rochette and Prix Lupin, and a very good stallion. Le Sancy died in 1901.
