April Breeze-Up sale – A top price at €75,000

The third breeze-up sale organised at Pornichet racecourse recorded similar figures to 2013. Despite the reduced number of two-year-olds on offer (8,8% less than in 2013), turnover rose by 0,73% to

€822,500 with an average of €16,255 and a clearance rate of 76,4%. The sale recorded a record top- price of €75,000 (against €45,000 in 2013).

The concept of offering French bred two-year-olds, all eligible for Owners’ Premiums in France, attracted many trainers and bloodstock agents, such as Jean-Claude Rouget, Henri-Alex Pantall, Paul Nataf, Alain Couétil, Marc-Antoine Berghgracht, Sylvie Sine, Nicolas Bertran de Balanda, FBA, Yann Barberot and Cédric Boutin.

Alain Couétil went to €75,000 for a filly by Mastercraftsman and Infinitely (Fantastic Light), consigned by Séverine Quéré.The filly had been bought for €30,000 by Guy Petit  at  the  La  Teste  yearling  sale  in September 2013.

Masterblaster, a colt by Sunday Break and Monatora, bred by Haras de la Haie Neuve and consigned by Haras du Chêne, was knocked down to Jean-Claude Rouget for €70,000.

He has since won very easily the Prix Philippe du Vivier at Bordeaux.

 

La Teste yearling sale – A top price of € 130,000

A filly by Le Havre became the first yearling to be sold over €100,000 at the La Teste yearling sale, when she was knocked down to MAB Agency for €130,000. Consigned by La Motteraye Consignment, she was purchased for Anthony Forde.

The  number of  lots offered  was  increased  by 30% compared to  2013  and turnover went  from €2,982,500 to €3,679,500 (+23,37%). The increased number of lots on offer had a slight effect on the average, which was down 4,29% on 2013 at €17,646.

 

The top-three purchasers are similar to 2013 with MAB Agency in first place (13 lots for a total of €399,000), followed by Jean-Claude Rouget (9 lots for €232,000) and Con Marnane (10 lots for a total of €171,000).

 

For the second year in a row at La Teste, the Haras de Grandcamp is top consignor with 19 lots sold for a total of €373.000, followed by La Motteraye Consignement (12 lots for €308,000) and Haras des Granges (13 lots for €295,000).

 

Many  European  purchasers  were  present  for  the  first  or  second  time  this  year,  such  as  Mary Reynolds (Ardglas Stables), SackvilleDonald Ltd, Alberto Remolina Diez, Liam Norris and William Huntingdon, Georges Mullins (purchaser of a filly by Champs Elysées consigned by Haras de Grandcamp, purchased for €85,000), Lamont Racing, David Keys, Katie Walsh, William Jarvis, Karl Burke, Emerald Bloodstock, Neven Botica, BBA Ireland Ltd and Guillermo Arizkorreta Elosegui.

 

Lion d’Anger s  – A total turnover approaching one million Euros

 

The Lion d’Angers sales’ clearance rate was of 71,24% and turnover went from €884,000 in 2013 to €973,000.

 

The yearling session, saw a total of 52 lots sell (75% clearance rate) for €544,000 at an average of €6,464 (up 15% on last year). Despite the fact that the catalogue had been reduced by over 40 lots, turnover rose by 4,51% compared to the corresponding session last year.

The sale was headed by a colt by Dream Ahead and Listed winner Lady Raj, consigned by Haras de l’Hôtellerie, bought by The Channel Consignment for €32,000.

 

The store sale was marked by three lots sold for over €30,000. As last year, Guy Petit was the most active purchaser during this session, buying the top three lots for a total of €92,000. Among his purchases figured lot 167, a two-year-old AQPS by Protektor, brother to Activial (winner of the Adonis Juvenil Hurdle (Gr.2) at Kempton), consigned by Haras de Pelmer, purchased for €32,000.

 

The figures of the breeding stock sale have risen slightly with a clearance rate of nearly 75%. Having purchased 19 lots, Paul Nataf was top purchaser. Lot 245, a daughter of Ballingarry in foal to Saint des Saints topped the last session of the year. Consigned by Haras des Coudraies, she was sold to Guy Petit for €16,000.

 

Emmanuel Viaud, Bloodstock sales manager, commented: “The figures this year are satisfactory for the team and we would like to thank all vendors and purchasers. The top price of each sale has risen, showing our capacity to offer quality horses.

This year has been very important in the development of Osarus. With Tattersalls support and the performances of graduates from our sales such as FLAMBOYANT, KENZADARGENT, EVASIVE’S FIRST and the first yearling from the La Teste sale to become a stallion, GEMIX, we have been able to attract many new purchasers”.
