The son of Ideal World is trained by Dean Kannemeyer and is bred by Riethuiskraal Stud. He is named after Lou Lou Lamusse, who was present to lead him in.

Lou Lou The Legend went on the grass on Monday.  He is starting to show improvement, as when he arrived they mentioned that he was a bit backward and immature, but he seems to have found his strength and is doing well.  I predict he will probably have his first run towards the end of September and I won’t be surprised to see him go over ground.

LOU LOU THE LEGEND is purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the BSA 2021 August sale – Lot 26. The Ideal World colt will be trained by Dean Kannemeyer.
