A stallion who can reproduce himself and put winners on the racecourse has the right combination to be a great success. French stallion Motivator has a handle on throwing just such fine victors. His babies are winning and have made Motivator greatly sought after. He stood the 2013 season for €7,000 or $9,640 (in United States funds) at Haras du Quesnay in France. For the 2014 breeding season, Motivator will increase his fee to €15,000 or $20,665 (U.S. funds). He will remain at Haras du Quesnay.
Motivator is a leading sire in Europe where his youngsters represent him well. One horse in particular has promoted the sire prowess of Motivator and that is the gifted Treve who is noted to be one of the best three-year olds in Europe and is the winner of this year’s Fr-I Prix de Diane Longines French Oaks, Fr-I Qatar Prix Vermeille and Fr-I Qatar Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe.
A notable race for Motivator himself was the Eng-I Racing Post Trophy at 2 years old and the Eng-I Epsom Derby at 3 years old.
Motivator sired the winner of the 2012 Fr-I Prix de l'Opera Longines Ridasiyna. He also has 18 stakes winners to date. Among his seven 2013 added money winners are group winners Felician, Ferevia and Daytona Bay.
