Yulong Confirmed Purchaser Of White Hot At Keeneland November

Michael Donohoe | Keeneland

BBA Ireland's Michael Donohoe secured Grade I-producing mare White Hot (Galileo {Ire}) at the Keeneland November Sale Wednesday for Yuesheng Zhang's Yulong Investements. Yulong's Chief Operating Officer Sam Fairgray confirmed the news to The Thoroughbred Report overnight.

Hammering down for $2.1 million, White Hot, the dam of GISW Pizza Bianca (Fastnet Rock {Aus}), was offered in-foal to multiple leading sire Into Mischief by Stone Farm (hip 170).

The purchase was part of a quartet of mares that went to Yulong for a combined total of $3,525,000. All options remain open for the group, according to Fairgray.

“We bought the four Galileo mares, a couple of them are in foal to Justify who is going brilliantly, and Mr. Zhang obviously has a real affinity with Galileo,” Fairgray said. “At this stage they'll all stay in America and foal down there, then we'll decide what to do with them. There are plenty of options for them and Mr. Zhang has some other ideas that we might try, but there's a likelihood that a couple of them could end up here in Australia.”
