Sibling To The Offer At Arqana This Weekend
Meanwhile, a half sister to Melbourne Cup favourite The Offer (Montjeu-Valdara, by Darshaan) will be offered at this weekend's Arqana August Yearling Sale at Deauville in France, reports racingandsports.com.au. Catalogued as Lot 34, the bay filly is by Excellent Art out of the now deceased Darshaan mare Valdara and will be consigned by Haras d'Etreham. Bred by Ireland's Barronstown Stud, she is the only Excellent Art yearling in the sale. Valdara, a Gr3 placegetter in France, passed away last year after producing nine foals to race for six winners, including Gr1 Sydney Cup (3200m) winner The Offer, stakes-winning mare Cymbal (Singspiel), and stakes-winning sire Musha Merr (Sadler's Wells).
