Keeneland Yearlings 2: Colt From Aust Gr1-Winner Arborea
Also catalogued at Keeneland is a colt from Australian Gr1-winning racemare Arborea (Imperial Prince-Open Question, by Alleged) by Widden Stud shuttler Belong To Me (Danzig-Belonging, by Exclusive Native). Arborea notched 8 wins (including the Gr1 Victoria Oaks, Gr1 Thousand Guineas, Gr2 Wakeful Stakes & Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes) & 6 placings from 32 starts for $837,456 prize-money. She was subsequently a $400,000 purchase at the 1995 Inglis Newhaven Park Dispersal Sale & is the dam of South African stakes-winner Delta Form (an $85,000 buy at the 1998 Inglis Easter Sale) who went on to campaign successfully in North America (winning a Gr2 event & placing twice in Gr1 races). In late 2005 Arborea resold (in-foal to Belong To Me) for US$85,000 at the Keeneland November Sale; the resultant foal is a 3/4 relation to stakes-winner Binding (by Belong To Me, out of Arborea's daughter Open Question & a $150,000 buy at the Inglis 2003 Easter Sale).
