France 2YOs: $521k Galileo Filly
In the French auction ring, Emmanuel de Seroux's Narvick International paid top price of €420,000 (A$521,000) for a filly by former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (out of Classira) at the 1-day Arqana 2YO Breeze-Up Sale at Saint-Cloud. The filly (consigned by Ireland's Mocklershill Stables) hails from the family of the 1994 Gr1 Irish Derby & Gr1 English Oaks winner Balanchine. The filly previously sold for just €140,000 (A$174,000) as a yearling at the 2011 Arqana August Sale.
