STRONG RESULTS FOR JUDDMONTE SIRES AT ARQANA
The first two days of the Arqana August Yearling Sale in Deauville have seen a strong performance form Juddmonte's stallions.
FRANKEL led the way with a colt out of Listed winner Sabratah (OASIS DREAM) selling to Oliver St Lawrence on behalf of Fawzi Nass for €600,000. St Lawrence said: "He's a lovely big scopey horse, a staying model who is still
quite unfurnished at present. He'll go to England to be trained
by George Peckham."
Lot 140, a Frankel filly out of Cerulean Sky's sister L'Ancresse, runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf and Irish Oaks, realised €480,000 putting her amongst the top five fillies to sell on day two. The buyer, Tom Ludt of Phoenix Thoroughbreds said: "She's a beautiful filly and we've been trying to get some bloodlines to build up the filly side,"
