Arqana Breeding Day-1: $621k Ponte
Tom Goff from Blandford Bloodstock paid €450,000 (A$621,000) for this year's Gr3-winning & Gr1-placed 2YO filly Pontenuovo (Green Tune-Porlezza, by Sicyos) consigned by her breeders Paul & Erika Hilger. Goff commented: "I can't say who she is for, but it is an old client of mine. The only thing that I can say for certain is that she will be traveling to England very soon to be trained as a 3YO. I don't know who she will be trained by, but she was a very good filly as a 2YO with a great record from a very good family. She also has 2 good sisters by Oasis Dream & Galileo to run, so there is plenty to look forward to."
