Argentina’s four-day Copa Bullrich sale wound up on June 4 and 6 at Haras La Pasion and was highlighted by the sale of 41 Masterscraftsman (Ire) yearlings. That draft in its entirety was offered by Haras Firmamento, which shuttled the son of Danehill Dancer (Ire) from Coolmore for his first Southern Hemisphere season in 2016. Mastercraftsman will return to Firmamento for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season later this year, where he will stand alongside GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winner Hit It A Bomb (War Front).
Topping the sale of Mastercraftsman yearlings was a colt out of the Poliglote mare Willy Wells (lot 110) that was purchased by Hector Fiorucho for $57,000. Two others broke the $50,000 mark: lot 106, a colt out of the listed-placed Curiosa Glory (Honour and Glory) bought by Garcia Romero for $55,000; and lot 86, a colt who is a half-brother to three stakes-placed horses who was picked up by De Galera for $52,000.
