Pontenuovo a late addition to Arqana sale

PRIX de Cabourg winner Pontenuovo is an important late addition to the Arqana breeding stock sale in Deauvlle from December 4 to 7.

The Yves de Nicolay-trained juvenile filly won the Group 3 Prix de Cabourg at Deauville - a race won in recent seasons by Alexandros and Silver Frost - in August.

She also ran third to Dream Ahead in the Prix Morny, and found only high-class Helleborine too good on her debut over 6f at Maisons-Laffitte in June.

Pontenuovo also boasts a fine pedigree, as a daughter of Green Tune - also sire of Fuisse - and Prix Maurice de Gheest winner Porlezza.

Pontenuovo will be offered at Deauville by her owner Erika Hilger, as lot 128.
