Deauville Prix de Minerve 17th August 2014.An exciting &  Impressive win by Sharshana bred by the Prince Aga Khan’s Studs, owned by the Prince Aga Khan.  Trained by Alain Royer du Pre. Zarshana is a daughter to the celebrated  “Sea the Stars”. We were able to have a chat with Georges Rimaud, who joined the Prince Aga Khan 12 yrs ago,& who is the Director of the Bonneval Stud for the Prince, who has 4 studs in France. The Prince Karim Aga Khan continued the Family tradition of race horse breeding, that goes back at least a 100 years. Georges Rimaud joined the Aga Khan’s Stud operation in 2001 when its profile was quite reduced, & has built it up again. M. Georges Rimaud is a dedicated race horse breeder & under his direction the Aga Khan Studs are producing fine specimens.Breeding race horses is a true passion for these aficionados, as well as a dedicated investment.   Photo Courtesy Patrick McCann. & Racing Post.
