Argentine sale company Copa Bullrich staged its October sale of 2-year-olds on Oct. 6 and 8, with 16 stud farms offering members of their crops. The live auctions at La Pasion Stud Farm, which were also streamed live, followed a four-day online pre-sale. For the first time since lockdown began, a select group of buyers was welcomed in-person.
Topping trade was La Leyenda’s Orpen filly out of the Group 2-winning Suska (Arg) (Exchange Rate), who brought a price of $50,000.
The top-priced colt was Santa Ines’s Catcher In The Rye (Ire) son of the Orpen mare Magnetic Filly (Arg), who brought $48,500. Magnetic Filly is a half-sister to dual Group 1 winner Magnetic Eyes (Arg) (Sky Classic). Orpen and Catcher In The Rye accounted for the top five prices at the sale.
