Icone d'Ambrelle | Auctav

The latest Auctav Flash Sale saw winning 3-year-old gelding Icone d'Aubrelle (Fr) (Cokoriko {Fr}) bring €150,000 from Highflyer Bloodstock. A winner at Bordeaux-le-Bouscat, Icone d'Aubrelle is from a versatile Aga Khan female family that has performed with credit on the Flat and over jumps.

“He's not a particularly precocious horse but he has a lot of improvement. I really liked when he won in Bordeaux after making a huge mistake at the penultimate hurdle. He will have a break for six months to let him grow and strengthen. He will then be trained in England for an English owner,” explained bloodstock agent David Powell.

Dual winner Purplepay (Fr) (Zarak {Fr}) was withdrawn and is targeting the G1 Criterium International at Saint-Cloud on Oct. 23.

“We are very pleased with the sale of Icone d'Aubrelle,” said Auctav General Director Arnaud Angeliaume. “This 3-year-old gelding really appealed to us and we thank all those who showed interest in him and Highflyer Bloodstock for this purchase. We would obviously have liked to see the auction with Purplepay but we respect the decision and the ambitions of her connections.

“Auctav is delighted that 100% of the horses presented during our Flash Sales have sold. It's a concept that works, both for sellers who can organize auctions in a matter of days, and for buyers who are offered horses on the up.”
