Star French mare Rotina delivers 16th foal
HARAS de la Reboursiere et de Montaigu's star broodmare Rotina produced her 16th foal at the age of 24 on Tuesday.
The new arrival is a bay colt by Reboursiere stallion Archange D'Or, a Group 2-winning son of Danehill.
Rotina, a daughter of Crystal Glitters, has been represented by eight winners and six black-type performers, headed by Prix Saint-Alary winner Belle Et Celebre (Peintre Celebre), Prix Jean Romanet scorer Whortleberry (Starborough), triple Group 3 scorer Valentino (Valanour) and Scandinavian champion Appel Au Maitre (Starborough).
Her sextet of stakes-performers is completed by Poule d'Essai des Pouliches third Ysoldina (Kendor) and Listed-placed Causa Proxima (Kendor).
Rotina also has a two-year-old colt by Literato who was not sold for €110,000 at last year's Arqana August Yearling Sale in Deauville.
Rotina's latest foaling was an easy one and she will reportedly stay in breeding.
