At age three, Sicambre won three important conditions races plus two French Classics, the Prix du Jockey Club and Grand Prix de Paris, in the process earning an impressive Timeform rating of 135.

Sicambre was retired to stand at stud beginning in 1952 at his owners Haras de Saint Pair du Mont where he died on April 30, 1975 and was buried in their equine cemetery. The leading sire in France in 1966, Sicambre sired: [1]
