Galiway Colt Tops Finał Day of Osarus

Osarus ended with a 64% clearance rate

The stock of Galiway continues to be on the rise and his son from MM Stud, out of the winning Exceed And Excel (Aus) mare Exceedingly Diva (GB) (lot 136), topped the Osarus Yearling Sale as it concluded its run at La Teste de Buch.

Bought for €41,000 by Pegasus Bloodstock, the colt is from the family of Sarayir, the half-sister to Nashwan, Unfuwain and Nayef who made her own mark on the breed as the dam of 1,000 Guineas winner Ghanaati.

A Kendagent (Fr) half-sister to G3 Prix du Bois winner Cosachope (Fr) (Soave {Ger})  (lot 146) was signed for by Laurent Benoit on behalf of Capucines Bloodstock for €40,000 and was the leading filly on a day when trade picked up a little on the opening session.

A larger catalogue this year saw 224 horses pass through the ring over the two days, with 144 sold (64%) for a total of €1,423,950. The average price of €11,069 was largely on a par with last year's trade, while the median dropped by 10% to €9,000.

Haras des Faunes, which consigned the Kendargent filly, was the sale's leading consignor with 23 horses sold for €291,500. Marseille-based trainer Christophe Escuder was the leading buyer after signing for 11 yearlings.
