Son of Galileo sells
for €300,000

THE only foal at Arqana by champion sire Galileo naturally drew plenty of admirers, eventually falling to agent RobertNataf of Horse France, standing next to Paul Shanahan, for €300,000.

"He was the best foal in the sale," said Nataf of the French-bred colt, who is out of the Woodman mare Arazena and a half-brother to the Listed-placed City Of Troy. "He was obviously a very attractive commodity for pinhooking and will probably stay in France because of his French-bred status."

Haras de Saint Isidro consigned the May-foaled colt, whose third dam is the Oaks and 1,000 Guineas winner Mysterious.
