BBAG Yearlings Day-2: $1.136m Monsun Colt
Rudiger Alles from IVA-Alles (acting for Baron Georg von Ullmann) smashed the BBAG sale record when he paid the Day-2 top price of €710,000 (A$1.136m) for a Monsun colt already named North Star (the 2nd foal out of Listed-winning Pivotal mare North America) consigned from Gestut Brummerhof (also responsible for the previous record-holder). That earlier record had been set in 2004 when Godolphin paid €400,000 (A$640,000) for Quorum (a winner in Dubai earlier year). Monsun stands at the von Ullmann family's Gestut Schlenderhan.
