Lot 79, a Cloth of Stars filly, was the third priciest lot | De Burgh Productions

Friday's BBAG Mixed Breeze-Up Sale featured 89 lots, and it was the 2021 G3 Kalkmann Fruhjahrs-Meile hero Zavaro (Ger) (Areion {Ger}) (lot 64) who took top honours at €52,000. Knocked down to Stall Villa Medici, he was a member of the Gestut Ohlerweiherhof draft. From the extended family of Group 1 winners Intense Focus (Giant's Causeway) and Skitter Scatter (Scat Daddy), the 5-year-old was most recently seen running second in Thursday's G2 Kronimus Badener Meile.

Second on the buyers' sheets was the Gestut Brummerhof-consigned Promised (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) (lot 89). HFTB Racing shelled out €38,000 for the daughter of listed winner Promesse de l'Aube (Fr) (Galileo {Ire}), who herself is a foal of Preis de Diane-placed White Rose (Ger) (Platini {Ger}).

A juvenile filly by Cloth of Stars (Ire) led the way in the 2-year-old portion of the sale, catching the eye of Laetitia Domenig for €32,000. Lot 79, from the Renello Bloodstock Agency, is out of Lightning Debut (Pivotal {GB}).

Overall, 56 sold from 76 offered (73%) for a gross of €586,500. The average improved 26% to €10,473 and the median was $10,111 (+19%).
