Runaway sold for €38,000 to race Sweden
GROUP 1-placed Runaway (lot 19) will continue his racing career in Sweden after making €38,000 to Marc-Antoine Bergracht's MAB Agency at Arqana's February Mixed Sale at Saint-Cloud on Monday.
The nine-year-old son of King's Best will now be trained by Katarina Stenfelt for owners Goran Anderberg and Ulf Persson. Their representative said: "We liked him because he has been running in Group races and was always in the money in Group 1s.
"This is the first time we have bought anything in France, and if all goes according to plan Runaway should run in Listed races across the country before hopefully making a nice stallion prospect."
Trained and offered by Rupert Pritchard-Gordon, Runaway ran third in the Prix d'Ispahan in 2009, and has won three Listed races to date.
