€320,000 Requinto colt stars at Deauville
Requinto’s first offering at a 2015 yearling sale hit the jackpot on Monday after a stunning colt realised €320,000 when sold to join Richard Hannon at Deauville. Out of the Grand Slam mare Narva, the colt showed a huge return for vendors Anna and Etienne Drion when selling to Amanda Skiffington, acting for owners Fiona Jennings and Ian Carmichael. Anna Drion told the Racing Post: "I'm just so overjoyed. We bought the mare very cheaply in Sweden and then sent her to Coolmore to be covered at a €5,000 fee. The yearling turned out to be a stunner." Skiffington added: "He is a beautiful horse who will probably go into training with Richard Hannon. I have seen quite a few foals by Requinto and I have been very impressed with them."
