Arqana Breeding Day-1: $428k Diyaraka
Australia's Arrowfield Stud representative Louis Le Metayer (bidding on behalf of his brother's Bertrand Le Metayer Bloodstock for Australian Nigel Austin & Anthony Mithen's Victorian-based Rosemont Stud) paid €310,000 (A$428,000) for winning & recently stakes-placed 3YO filly Diyaraka (Clodovil-Diamonaka, by Akarad) consigned from The Aga Khan Studs. Diyaraka is a half-sister to the Group-winners Diamilina, Diamond Green & Diamonoxa, as well as closely related to Gr1 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer. Le Metayer indicated Diyaraka will stay in France seeking black-type before travelling to Australia.
