The Bated Breath half-sister to Aramhes led the first session at €105,000

The two-day Osarus Yearling Sale got underway in La Teste de Buch on Tuesday with the opening session led by a Bated Breath (GB) filly (lot 75) sold to Ghislain Bozo of Meridian International for €105,000.

Offered by Vincent Le Roy, the May-born filly is a daughter of Anjella (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}), whose other offspring include this season's promising 3-year-old Aramhes (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}) and the Group 3-placed Stable Genius (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}).

The filly was the sole yearling to break the six-figure mark during the day. A colt by Haras de Saint Arnoult's Sommerabend (GB) (lot 85) was next on the list at €60,000, knocked down to agent Marc-Antoine Berghgracht of MAB Agency.

Jean-Claude Rouget went to €52,000 for a colt from the first crop of his former trainer Morandi (Ire). Sold at lot 109 from Elevage de la Gagnerie, he is the second foal of Charming Clem (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}), a daughter of the listed winner Gold Charm (Ger) (Key Of Luck).

A clearance rate of 75% saw 97 of the 128 yearlings offered sell for an average of €20,626 and median of €18,000. Turnover stood at €1,934,000.

The second session takes place today (Wednesday) from 1pm and includes a Myboycharlie (Ire) half-sister to the Eddie Lynam-trained G2 Sapphire S. winner Soffia (GB) (Kyllachy {GB}). Offered by Haras de Montaigu, she will be sold as lot 270.
