Taking place on Tuesday, August 22, just a day after the August Yearling Sale, the fifth edition of the V.2 Yearling Sale has a total of 144 lots catalogued, which can now be checked out online.
Intended for early types with speedy pedigrees, the V.2 sale has firmly established its identity thanks to the many successes recorded by graduates at two and upwards. Gr.3 Prix des Reservoirs heroine TRIXIA, Champion Juvenile Stakes (Gr.3) victor LANDFALL, Prix des Sablonnets (L.) scorer MAXIMUM AURELIUS, Listed winner and Group 3 placed juvenile CLEM FANDANGO, as well as Listed scorers HURRICANE, BLACK SEA, EXCILLY and FOURIOSO were all sold at the V.2 Sale.
This year, graduates of the V.2 Yearling Sale have been spearheaded by Almanzor’s sister TROARN, a recent second in the Derby du Midi L., MISTER PICNIC, an eye-catching third in the Prix La Fleche L. and promising juvenile winners WARREN, VALOMBREUSE, MAMBA NOIRE, TREMONT etc.
In keeping with the idea behind the V.2 Sale, the 2017 catalogue is made up of yearlings by stallions that have proved themselves as sires of two-year-olds. Dabirsim, the only first-season sire to have produced a Group winner so far this year thanks to outstanding Gr.3 Albany Stakes victrix DIFFERENT LEAGUE, has eight yearlings in the sale. Elusive City, Evasive, George Vancouver, Harbour Watch, Havana Gold, Kendargent, Kodiac, Myboycharlie, Pedro The Great, Penny’s Picnic, Rajsaman, Rio De La Plata, Siyouni, Style Vendome and Wootton Bassett are also well represented.
The catalogue also features the first yearlings by Alhebayeb, a winner of the Gr.2 July Stakes and L. Windsor Castle Stakes, American Devil, Anodin, dual Group-winning juvenile Bungle Inthejungle, Garswood, Prix Morny hero No Nay Never, Olympic Glory and War Command.
Two-year-old Black-type performers feature throughout the catalogue in the female lines, with siblings to the precocious PEARL FLUTE (lot 401 consigned by Jedburgh Stud), ESPIRITA (lot 451 offered from Fairway Consignment), KATIE’S DIAMOND (lot 434 from Haras de Bernesq), SWEET CHARITY (lot 398 consigned by Haras d’Omméel), KING DAVID (lot 448 from Haras de la Haie Neuve), MERI SHIKA (lot 476 offered from Haras de la Gisloterie) and yearlings out of BAHAMA MAMA (lot 449 from Haras de Tourgéville) and DONT TEUTCH (lot 472 consigned by Haras des Sablonnets) etc. all set to go under the hammer.
