Leading Russian 2YO's Sibling Catalogued For Arqana
The Arqana August Yearling Sale will take place this weekend August 17-19 at Deauville in France. Among the prized lots on offer is a full-sister to Russia's best 2YO Dreamkeeper (Galileo-Naissance Royale, by Giant's Causeway). Dreamkeeper, a recent 5-length winner of the Gr1 (domestic) Legislative Assembly of Krasnodar Region Stakes (1600m), was a €350,000 purchase by Badgers Bloodstock at last year's August sale from the consignment of Ecurie des Monceaux. Ecurie des Monceaux also bred Dreamkeeper's sister who will go through the sale ring as lot 18 on Saturday. Interestingly from an Australian perspective, there are 7 Fastnet Rock progeny catalogued including a bay colt from the Sadler's Wells mare Magnolia Lane, a full-sister to the outstanding 4-time Gold Cup winner Yeats.
