The 2017 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale concluded last night and saw yet more success for the Darley stallions, following an outstanding first day on Tuesday.
Sepoy, whose daughter Unforgettable Filly threw herself into contention for next month’s G1 1,000 Guineas earlier in the day when beaten less than a length in the G3 Nell Gwyn Stakes on the Rowley Mile, enjoyed further success in the sales ring.
His colt out of Caledonia Princess, consigned by Knockanglass Stables, was bought by Shadwell for 270,000 guineas. The mare is herself a half-sister to Group winner Caledonia Lady, also winner of two Listed contests and third in the Queen Mary at two.
Earlier in the evening, Sackville Donald snapped up one of the first two-year-olds by Champion juvenile Dawn Approach for 210,000 guineas. The colt, consigned by Mocklershill, is out of Black type producer Zibilene, a half-sister to outstanding G1 winners Barathea and Gossamer.
The highest-priced Darley-sired lot of the day was a colt by leading Australian sire Lonhro, bought by Kerri Radcliffe for 300,000 guineas. Lonhro’s G1-winningn son Exosphere is a new addition to the European Darley roster this year and stands at Haras du Logis in France.
