Wootton Bassett filly tops bill at La Teste

Venn goes to €77,000 for his breeze-up pick

Richard Venn: struck for the top lot at the 2017 Osarus Breeze-Up Sale
1 of 1

For the third consecutive year, Haras du Saubouas supplied the top two lots - in fact, it was the top three in 2015 - at the Osarus Breeze-Up Sale on Wednesday.

Bloodstock agent Richard Venn was in La Teste to pay €77,000 for Teni City, a filly by Wootton Bassett - sire of last year's champion European three-year-old Almanzor - out of the winning Keltos mare Tenepia. 

Tenepia has produced three other winners to date, and is out of a daughter of the dual Group 3 winner Tenue De Soiree.

Local trainer Christophe Ferland went to €60,000 to secure a Penny's Picnic filly out of the winning Raven's Pass mare Danoya, who in turn is out of Damoiselle, winner of the 6f Prix Eclipse at Maisons-Laffitte in 2005. 

"She breezed nicely and is from a family I know well, as well as coming from Haras du Saubouas," Ferland said. "She has behaved well here and is a good model of a filly, so we will see. We will take her back across the road. After two or three stressful days here, she will probably need an easy week, then she'll be ready to go."
