Search is on for the next Olmedo or Teppal as V2 catalogue released
This year's Poule d'Essai winners sold for a combined €160,000
The catalogue for this year's Arqana V2 Yearling Sale, designated for more physically forward lots, has been unveiled and will comprise 140 youngsters.
The company hopes that the next Olmedo or Teppal - V2 graduates who annexed this year's Poule d'Essai des Poulains and Pouliches at the new Longchamp - could be found among the lots on offer at this year's renewal which takes place on August 21.
Trainer Jean-Claude Rouget snapped up the Declaration Of War colt Olmedo for €100,000 from the Capucines consignment last year, while Con Marnane signed the docket at €60,000 for the Camacho filly Teppal on the same day.
From the same catalogue, Patascoy was a half-length behind Study Of Man in the Prix du Jockey Club after filling the runner-up spot in the Group 3 Prix de Guiche. In the fillies' ranks, Siyouni filly Barkaa won the Group 3 Prix Vanteaux, an important Classic trial.
The catalogue features a number of sires who boast a particularly strong record with their juveniles, such as Dabirsim, Dark Angel, Elusive City, Iffraaj, Pedro The Great, Rajsaman, Siyouni, Wootton Bassett and first-season sire No Nay Never, who already has three black-type performers in his first crop.
