The Famous Five Brings €250k on I Want The Winner Sale Platform


The Famous Five | I Want The Winner

The Famous Five (Fr) (Camelot {GB}) will be sent hurdling after bringing €250,000 from Guy Petit acting for Venetia Williams Racing during the latest I Want The Winner Sale. Trained by Henri-Alex Pantall, the 3-year-old colt is a dual winner at Fontainebleau in March and at Vichy on Aug. 15.

In foal to Cokoriko (Fr) (Robin des Champs {Fr}), Apple's Maelys (Fr) (Saddler Maker {Ire}) was knocked down for €60,000 to Guy Petit on behalf of Matthieu da Costa Noble's Haras de Tonnencourt. The full-sister to Grade 1 winner Apple's Jade (Fr) (Saddler Maker {Ire}) was consigned by Thierry Cypres. A co-owner of The Famous Five, Da Costa Noble, re-invested his profit from the colt to purchase the latter through Petit.

The final horse sold on the I Want The Winner online sale platform on Monday was Just Great (Fr) (Great Pretender {Ire}) for €10,000. Bred and owned by Pascal Priollet, the unraced 2-year-old colt will now go to Louisa Carberry's yard.

Valentin Adam, I Want The Winner's Development Director, said, “We are delighted with these three sales, which prove the attractiveness of our platform and its international influence. We thank vendors and buyers for their confidence and wish them plenty of success with their new recruits.”
