Arqana Breeding Day-3: $58k Salontanzerin
Association Pur Sang Anglais (acting for the Moroccan association of thoroughbred breeders, represented by Driss Tarik) also paid €42,000 (A$58,000) for 5-time-winning German-bred 5YO mare Salontanzerin (Black Sam Bellamy-Salontasche, by Dashing Blade) consigned from Haras du Taillis. Salontanzerin (a sister to dual Gr3-winner Saphir) finished 2nd in a Listed race at Deauville last week. Tarik (who owns 200 horses in his native country) told racingpost.com: "We are going to leave her in training with Henri-Alex Pantall until March & hope to run her at Cagnes next month before a tilt at another Listed race. If that works out well, we could leave her in France or if not she will return to Morocco. When she finishes her career, she is likely to be covered by Russian Cross at home."
