At Gilltown Stud in Ireland:
- AZAMOUR 10,000 Euros
- DALAKHANI 25,000 Euros
- SEA THE STARS 85,000 Euros
At Haras de Bonneval in France:
- REDOUTE’S CHOICE 70,000 Euros
- SINNDAR 6,000 Euros
- SIYOUNI 7,000 Euros
AZAMOUR enjoyed Classic success when his unbeaten daughter Valyra won the Prix de Diane, while DALAKHANI was the sire of 14 Stakes performers in 2012. His juvenile Group winner Fantastic Moon looks a promising prospect for next year.
Sea The Stars’ first yearlings made a strong impression at the sales, selling for an average of €319,734 with a top price at 1,2 million Euros.
In France, SINNDAR enjoyed another good season, as his daughter Shareta won the Yorkshire Oaks and the Prix Vermeille. He is establishing himself as an excellent broodmare sire, as demonstrated by the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Flotilla and the St Leger winner Encke.
Siyouni, whose pedigree further improved with the two Group 1 victories of his sister Siyouma, covered again a full book of mares in 2012 and the feedback from breeders of his first foals has been highly positive.
SINNDAR and Siyouni will be joined by the top Australian sire Redoute’s Choice in 2013, who is now the sire of 95 Stakes winners, including 21 Group 1 winners.
