Arqana Yearlings Day-3: $200k Whipper Filly
In Europe overnight, Robert Nataf from Horse France paid top price of €125,000 (A$200,000) for a filly by triple Gr1-winner Whipper (out of 14-year-old Night Shift mare Hasanat) during the closing session at the 3-day Arqana October Yearling Sale at Deauville in France. The filly was consigned from Normandy-based Haras de Saint Pair & Nataf told racingpost.com: "She should be heading to Ireland for (trainer) Jim Bolger, who has a good Whipper filly (Atasari) who ran 2nd in the Rockfel at Newmarket on Saturday. This one was obviously the best-looking filly in the catalogue today."
