A winning filly with an attractive pedigree as well as six exciting horses in training have taken up wild card entries for the upcoming Summer Sale, which will take place in Deauville July 2-4. All 7 lots will go under the hammer Thursday 4 July from 11:00am.
Offered from the yard of Jean-Claude Rouget for which she won as a juvenile, the three-year-old filly FIFTH ELEMENT (lot 250) is a daughter of Most Improved out of a half-sister to the Listed scorer and Group 1 performer AFANDEM. This is the close family of the Group 1 winners ELLIPTIQUE and AMERICAIN.
The progressive sprinter-miler MON AMI L’ECOSSAIS (lot 370) hails from the in-form yard of Stéphane Wattel. He was last seen running 3rd in the L. Prix Marchand d’Or after filling the same position in a Class 1 event behind the subsequent Gr.3 Prix Paul de Moussac scorer WUSOOL.
The 4-year-old AQPS gelding ESPOIR DE GUYE (lot 385) lost his maiden tag at second asking over hurdles at Les Sables-d’Olonne, notably beating the Gr.3AQ performer ELISA DES OBEAUX.
Leading National Hunt trainer François Nicolle will offer DUSTIN DES MOTTES (lot 390), a lightly-raced five-year-old AQPS. The son of Kapgarde already boasts three victories over hurdles and won cosily on his chasing debut at Clairefontaine.
The four-year-old gelding ENJOY OF SIVOLA (lot 405) ran third over hurdles on his only start to date for the astute handler Emmanuel Clayeux. He is by Anzillero out of a half-sister to the top-class jumper TELL NO ONE.
