Arqana August Yearling Sale Day-1: €1.1 Million Galileo Filly
In France, on Day-1 of Arqana's prestigious August Yearling Sale where 464 horses are catalogued, Agence FIPS secured a sale-topping filly by the world's highest rated stallion Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) for €1.1 million. Lot 49 (Galileo-Prudenzia, by Dansili) was purchased "for an undisclosed client... She will always have residual value, so it is probably better to buy such a filly at this price rather than a colt." The filly's Irish-bred dam is a stakes-winning half-sister to Gr3 Prix de Lute?ce winner Pacifique from the family of champion mare Alexandrova.
