OSARUS APPOINTS ARNAULT LERAITRE AS BLOODSTOCK DIRECTOR

Posted on | Posted in news

After working for Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard for over twenty years, Arnault Leraitre has been appointed Bloodstock Director at Osarus. His role will be to strengthen the existing team and to enhance the activity of French and foreign vendors and purchasers.

Arnault Leraitre : « After helping the bloodstock team in 2016 to select yearlings for the La Teste September sale, I am very pleased to join the team permanently. I was immersed from an early age in harness racing before discovering thoroughbreds during an internship with Dr.V.Pouret. At the same time, I learnt to observe young horses for two years alongside Dominique Sepulchre. At the beginning of the 90’s, I joined Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard, and gained invaluable breeding experience with Tim Richardson. The experience gained through holding many positions of responsibility at the Niarchos Family’s operation is an important asset when dealing with breeders, consignors, agents and trainers.
Through my regular presence on the European market and in Kentucky, I have been able to establish strong working relationships within the industry. After twenty-three years spent alongside horses having won the Arc de Triomphe, Jockey Club, Prix de Diane, Poules d’Essai, Grand Prix de Paris, Jacques Le Marois, Breeder’s Cup and many more, I am very eager to participate in the development of Osarus. »
