Arqana Yearlings Day 3

Thursday, 25th October 2012

On the final day overnight at the Arqana October Yearling Sale, Townley Hall's Mick Filanagan struck early to secure the day's top lot "when going to €77,000 for a son of Shamardal", reports racingpost.com. From the Singspiel mare Songbook, the colt is out of a half-sister to triple Gr3 winner Two-Twenty-Two (by Fairy King), as well as Listed winners Easy Definition (by Alzao) and Desert Ease (by Green Desert). Filanagan noted: "He is a lovely colt who will go to Saint-Cloud in the spring. He was a little over what I hoped to pay but he's a great individual ... He also comes from a great farm (Haras du Buff)."
