Arqana Yearlings: $342k Linamix Colt
Also in France, Jean-Pierre Deroubaix from the French Bloodstock Agency (acting on behalf of Mongolian Racing Association executive director Mr Ganbat) paid top price of €180,000 (A$342,000) for a Linamix colt (out of Danzero mare Djenanne) during the 1-day Arqana December Yearling Sale at Deauville. The colt (the only offering by Linamix in the catalogue) was consigned by Haras de la Perelle & is from the family of Gr1-winner Shaka. The price also set a new record for this auction & was more than double the previous €77,000 (A$146,000) mark set in 2006 (for a Dalakhani colt & an Iron Mask filly).
