Classy Zweig One Of Three Wildcards Added To Arqana Summer Sale

Zweig | Scoop Dyga

Listed winner Zweig (Ire) (Churchill {Ire}) (lot 512) has been added as a wildcard to the Arqana Summer Sale, which is due to take place from July 1-4.

Trained by Jean-Claude Rouget, the three-year-old Zweig will be sold with an entry in the G1 Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp on Saturday, July 13, having completed a hat-trick when winning the Listed Derby du Languedoc by a neck at Toulouse last month. Bred by Knocktartan House Stud, he sold for €80,000 at the Goffs November Foal Sale and was later bought by Rouget for €110,000 at the Arqana August Yearling Sale. He is the third winner from as many runners out of the Winker Watson (GB) mare Euthenia (GB), a half-sister to the G2 Prix de Sandringham heroine Laugh Out Loud (GB) (Clodovil {Ire}).

A pair of National Hunt performers have also been added to the sale, namely the Niort bumper winner Kremlin (Fr) (Karaktar {Ire}) (lot 522), who is out of a half-sister to the multiple Grade 2 winner Natal (Fr) (Funny Baby {Fr}), and the three-year-old Sagarric (Fr) (Bathyrhon {Ger}) (lot 523), runner-up on his recent hurdling debut at Compiegne. He is out of the G3 Diego White scorer Poliaurea (Arg) (Poliglote {GB}), the dam of four winners.
