Back down to earth with a bump at SGA sale

AFTER Friday's buoyant boutique first session of the SGA Yearling Sale in Milan, vendors were back down to earth witha bump in the non-select second and final session on Saturday.

On Friday there were five six-figure lots headed by a €210,000 son of Dubawi sold to Anthony Stroud; but one day later it took Scuderia Lisetta just €31,000 to secure the top lot.

The session-topper was a One Cool Cat colt out of the Listed-winning Ali-Royal mare Royal Rhapsody.

Antonio Marcialis paid €25,000 for a filly from the final crop of Ishiguru out of the Acclamation mare Broken Applause, runner-up in the Group 3 Firth of Clyde Stakes.

Those two were followed in the list of top lots by two colts by Kheleyf and Tout Seul and a filly by Footstepsinthesand who each made €20,000.

The overriding feature of the session was the poor clearance rate. Only 59 of the 116 lots offered - just over half - were registered as sold.
