A Fastnet Rock (Aus) half-brother to Grade I winner Sistercharlie (Ire) (Myboycharlie {Ire}) and last month’s G1 Prix du Jockey Club victor Sottsass (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) is among the 338 yearlings catalogued for Arqana’s August yearling sale on Aug. 17 to 19, for which the catalogue was released on Tuesday. Lot 21, consigned by Ecurie des Monceaux, is also a half-brother to Group 3 winner My Sister Nat (Fr) (Acclamation {GB}).

Also among nine Galileos catalogued is Haras d’Etreham’s colt out of dual Group 3 winner and dual Group 1-placed Steip Amach (Ire) (Vocalised) (lot 23). Also from Etreham is an American Pharoah filly out of a daughter of dual Classic winner and Group 1 producer Imagine (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells) (lot 38).

Lope de Vega (Ire) is having a banner season, and he is the sire of Ballylinch Stud’s lot 34, a full-sister to G3 Prestige S. winner Antonia de Vega (Ire), as well as lot 60, a full-brother to exciting juvenile Lope Y Fernandez (Fr) and a half to G2 Vintage S. winner Dark Vision (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}).

The well-related progeny of Le Havre (Ire) set for sale include lot 5, who is out of a half-sister to The Fugue (GB) (Dansili {GB}); and lot 29, a filly out of multiple Group 3 winner Top Toss (Ire) (Linamix {Fr}) and therefore a half-sister to dual Group 3 winner Lesstalk In Paris (Fr) (Cape Cross {Ire}).

Lot 54 is a filly by Olympic Glory (Ire), who recently enjoyed a career-best winner at Royal Ascot courtesy of Watch Me (Fr) in the G1 Coronation S. Lot 54 is also a half-sister to Fleeting (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}), who was second in the Royal meeting’s G2 Ribblesdale S.

A Dubawi (Ire) colt out of Giofra (GB) topped the 2017 edition of this sale when bringing €1.55-million from Phoenix Thoroughbreds, and the G1 Falmouth S. winner has a full-brother to that one to go through this year (lot 88). Invincible Spirit’s representatives include a full-brother to G1 Cheveley Park S. winner Rosdhu Queen (Ire) lot 91. Also set to go through the ring are the progeny of half-sisters to Treve (Fr) and Danedream (Ger).

The catalogue can be accessed here.

In addition to Sottsass and Fleeting, the August Sale’s representatives on the track in 2019 include last week’s G2 Coventry S. winner Arizona (Ire) (No Nay Never {Ire}), who has a close relative to go through the ring this year in the form of lot 157, a half-brother to champion 2-year-old Dabirsim (Fr) by Intello (Ger).

The first two days of the sale comprise Part I, where 70% of the lots catalogued are out of black-type performers or producers. The third and final day of the sale is Part II. (fonte : Arqana)
