UK Doncaster Dec Sale: $50k Tropical Breeze
In the UK auction ring overnight, agent Stephen Hillen paid top price of £31,000 (A$50,000) for unraced 9YO mare Tropical Breeze (Kris-Embers Of Fame, by Sadler's Wells) at the 1-day Doncaster Bloodstock December Sale. Tropical Breeze (consigned from Darley by Rabbah Bloodstock) was sold in-foal to triple Gr1-winning boom Darley shuttler Dubawi (leading 2nd-season stallion in Europe this year). Hillen told racingpost.com: "She's for David Redvers & we really just bought her for the Dubawi cover. I should think the foal will be sold next year."
