Relation to Loi tops quiet third day at Arqana

LAND Star, a close relative of 2012 Epsom Derby prospect and Group 3 winner Loi, topped the third day of the Arqana December Breeding Stock Sale after Paul Nataf went to €55,000 to dissolve a partnership.

The winner of a race at Durtal this year from three starts, the daughter of Peintre Celebre was purchased by the agentfor her part owner Enrico Ciampi, who also owns the Classic prospect. Both are in training with Jean-Marie Beguigne.

"Mr Ciampi wanted to keep her as Loi has done very well this season, and is a very promising horse. He has now bought out his two other partners, and she will stay in training next year," Nataf said.

Out of a two time winning Unbridled mare, Land Star is a half-sister to Listed winner Law Of Chance. Loi has won two of his three starts to date, including the Prix de Conde at Longchamp in September.
