Daughter Of Gleneagles Brings €460,000 At Arqana

Gleneagles’ sole offering on the opening day of the Arqana August Yearling Sale sold to Oceanic Bloodstock for €460,000.

Camas Park and Glenvale Stud offered the late April-born filly, who is a three-parts sister to recent Group 1 winner Onesto.

Michel Zerolo signed the docket and when quizzed on what attracted him to the filly, declared, “Everything! I bought her for Peter Brant in partnership with MV Magnier. The pedigree is there, she’s a half-sister to a really good horse who could be an Arc winner. She may look very cheap in a few months.”

The daughter of Gleneagles was bred by Diamond Creek Farm out of the unraced mare Onshore, who has a two-year-old filly by Australia. Gleneagles has been enjoying a terrific season, led by Grade 1 victor Highland Chief and Group 2 Richmond Stakes winner Royal Scotsman.
