Italian buyers set
early pace at Arqana

ITALIAN buyers set the early pace during the second session of the Arqana December Sale with Azienda Agricola Loreto Luciani going to €87,000 to secure Visions On Space, a Lure half-sister to Group 1 winners Dolphin Street, Insight and Saffron Walden from Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard. The ten-year-old mare, who is in foal to Rock Of Gibraltar, also counts this season's leading miler Henrythenavigator among her close relations.

"She's for Stefano Luciani and will head back to Italy," said the winning bidder, Eleonor Scudu. "I thought she was a beautiful mare who's in foal to a very good stallion."
