Sands Of Mali | Scoop Dyga

Osarus has released the catalogue for its September Yearling Sale, which is to be held at La Teste de Buch racecourse on September 11 and 12.

The 236 yearlings catalogued across the two days include one from the first crop of Sands Of Mali (Fr), who is arguably the most celebrated graduate of the sale, having been bought at Osarus in 2016 by Con Marnane. The winner of the G1 QIPCO British Champions Sprint among his four group wins, Sands Of Mali is now at Ballyhane Stud in Ireland. His entry in the sale is lot 7, consigned by Haras des Loges, a half-sister to the Listed-placed Pacifica (Fr) (Red Jazz), while the stallion's family is also represented by Sands Of Mali's half-brother by Gutaifan (Ire). Lot 192 is one of 25 yearlings by Gutaifan, who now stands at Alain Chopard's Haras des Faunes.

Haras de Maulepaire consigns two first-crop yearlings by the Meon Valley Stud-bred G2 Dante S. winner Telecaster (GB), who is resident at Maulepaire's sister stud Haras du Mesnil. They include lot 53, a colt out of Subprime (Fr), a four-time winner by fellow Mesnil stallion Doctor Dino (Fr).

Also catalogued are two daughters of the popular Aga Khan Studs stallion Zarak (Fr), including lot 96, who is out of a full-sister to the G1 Preis von Europa winner Baila Me (Ger) (Samum {Ger}).
