Australian buyers to
the fore at Arqana

Australian buyers, notably Patinack Farm, helped boost this sale last year and those hunting for potential southern hemisphere prospects were in evidence again on Sunday at Arqana.

This time it was Richard Gamble who made the most impact, purchasing Evidential, an unplaced daughter of Sadler's Wells in foal to Marju, for €70,000.

"She has been bought for Ladyship Lodge Stud in Australia, " said Gamble. "I don't know when she will go out there - we'll have to discuss that in the next couple of days. I think she will make a tip top broodmare."

Out of the Group 3 Prix Chloe winner Prove, Evidential hails from the classy Juddmonte family of Dewhurst Stakes third Trade Fair and recent Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint heroine Ventura.
