Gelding by Archipenko, he is a half brother to winner California Lad. He has been given plenty of time to grow and develop and will be a nice long term prospect. En Couleur ran very well on his debut, finishing third at odds of 50-1.

En Couleur is now novice hurdling and finished fourth on his debut at Wetherby.

Away from the track En Couleur is a character. He spends his days in the field pulling faces at the fillies and amusing himself immensely.
