3 Deauville Yearlings To Aust Buyers Maher & Ryan
In France, Australian buyers Peter Maher & Gerry Ryan purchased 3 yearlings (under the Broadhurst Agency banner) during this week's 4-day Arqana Sale at Deauville: a Red Ransom colt for €210,000 (A$357,000); a Captain Rio filly for €150,000 (A$255,000); & a Montjeu filly for €130,000 (A$221,000). Australian bloodstock agent Damon Gabbedy (Arqana's Australasian representative) commented: "The pair were reinvesting after tasting success with 2YO colt Café Racer, who they purchased for €90,000 (A$153,000) at the same sale last year. By Royal Applause & trained by Andre Fabre, Café Racer has had 3 starts for a 2nd on debut, then 2 wins & goes to a Group race at his next start. Both owners were in attendance for his last win & by all accounts it was the thrill of a life time!"
