In South America, Gr1 English St Leger-winning 9YO freshman stallion Sixties Icon (Galileo-Love Divine, by Diesis) is to shuttle to leading Argentine stud Haras La Pasion, reported racingpost.com. Sixties Icon (who boasts 6 European 1st-crop winners from 10 runners to date) "entered quarantine on Wednesday & is scheduled to ship to Argentina within the next 21-28 days". Sixties Icon stood the past English season at Norman Court Stud in Wiltshire for £4,500 (A$7,200).
