Hot Streak half-sister tops Osarus sale

The 15-year-old daughter of Bluebird, whose granddam is blue hen Height Of Fashion, was sold to Stefan Ullrich for €16,000.


New Design, who was consigned to the sale in foal to Dabirsim by Haras de Saint-Arnoult, has produced two winners including the Italian Listed performer Guizzo Vincente.

Next best on the day was the first lot through the ring, the Haras du Bois Roussel-consigned Caerleon mare War Game. She was bought by Broadhurst Agency for €14,000.

The 19-year-0ld half-sister to Westerner won the Group 2 Prix Maurice de Nieuil in her prime, and has produced Prix Hocquart winner Wajir and Listed-placed War Monger at stud.

Turnover (including private sales) was €194,250, just under half of last year's takings.
