ABOUT US

Who we are

French Bloodstock agent Gérard LARRIEU was born in 1956 in Pau, South West of France, at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains, a French region well known for its racing, breeding and....gastronomy.

After serving in the Pau training center as an assistant trainer to the leading jumping trainer Jean Couetil, Gérard Larrieu moved north to Chantilly in the mid seventies to fill the same position with French leading trainer François Boutin. In 1981 and 1982 he worked in New-York for leading trainer Mackenzie Miller before returning to France where he decided to launch his bloodstock agent career.
