Vidal snaps up €30,000 Slickly filly at Osarus

VILNA, a daughter of Darley stallion Slickly, was the star turn of the Osarus Breeze-up Sale at Pornichet in France on Wednesday, selling for €30,000 to prominent French agent Sylvain Vidal.

The sale marked a return to the breeze-up arena for Osarus following a break of a year. It also broke new ground in that it was the first French breeze-up where juveniles were breezed on an all-weather surface.


In all, 26 two-year-olds - 74 per cent of those offered - were sold for a total of €312,000. The average was €12,000 while the median came in at €10,000.

The sale-topping filly was consigned by Haras de Saint Arnoult and is the third foal out of Vingt Six, whose first two foals are winners in France. The unplaced daughter of Octagonal is a half-sister to Listed winner Sokar, also by Slickly.

Vidal ended the sale as leading buyer with three bought for a total of €67,000. His purchases also included the second dearest lot of the day, a Lando half-sister to Prix Hocquart winner Coroner who was sold for €27,000. Touchwood Stables consigned the filly, who is out of the 1995 Moyglare Stud Stakes runner-up Tamnia, by Green Desert.
