Fun With Flags Scoop Dyga

Nicolas de Watrigant of Mandore International Agency had the final say for Fun With Flags (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) at the Arqana Online Pop-Up Sale, the Listed winner bringing a final bid of €630,000.

Fun With Flags won the Prix Rose de Mai, and was the G3 Prix Cleopatre runner-up by just over two lengths to Halfday (Fr) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), for Jerome Reynier, and was offered with an entry in the G1 Prix de Diane. She has won three of her four career starts.

When asked for details, de Watrigant could not divulge the name of his client, but said the filly will target the GI Belmont Oaks in America on July 6.

Out of an unplaced Galileo (Ire) mare, Fun With Flags hails from the female family of Group-placed Gemstone (Ire), a full-sister to her dam, who herself produced Group 1-placed Nugget (GB) (Siyouni {Fr}) and Listed winner UAE Jewel (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}). This is also the family of G1 Irish St. Leger winner Sonnyboyliston (Ire) (Power {GB}); G1 Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Bachelor Duke (Miswaki); globetrotting multiple Group winner Spanish Mission (Noble Mission {GB}); and American Graded-placed Dude N Colorado (GB) (Uncle Mo).
