Street Sense Colt Sets Arqana Breeze Up Record

Sunday, 14 May 2017: The colt is the most expensive breeze-up horse to sell in Europe this year and set a new record for the Arqana sale.
From the draft of Mocklershill, the colt is the sixth foal out of the Listed winner Mystic Melody (Seattle Slew). She has produced two winners to date.
The colt’s second dam is the Listed winner Munnaya (Nijinsky), the dam off 11 winners including the dual G1 winner Alpha (Bernardini).
The colt was purchased at last year’s Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Radcliffe said that he would be trained in Newmarket by her husband for Phoenix Thoroughbreds.
Two lots sold for over €500,000.
A colt by Siyouni out of the winning Sinndar mare Ponte Di Legno was bought by Richard O’Gorman Bloodstock for €550,000 and Shadwell France went to €650,000 to secure a daughter of Siyouni.
Last year’s previous record top price was €800,000 and was truly eclipsed along as all the major indicators posted significant gains.
With eight per cent more horses offered this year compared to the 2016 sale, the aggregate rose 24 per cent from €10,466,500 to €12,948,000.
The average rose 25 per cent from €110,174 to €137,745 and the median was up 28 per cent from €67,000 to €86,000.
