A share in Siyouni, who is only a few weeks away from a second consecutive title of leading French-based sire by progeny earnings, will be offered for sale on Arqanaonline.com, Thursday 15th November.
The Haras de Bonneval resident has been more than ever in the spotlight this season courtesy of the show-stopping achievements from his daughter LAURENS, who collected no less than five Group 1 titles in three different countries. His sons didn’t do badly either, with CITY LIGHT only denied by the narrowest of margins in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes while FINSBURY SQUARE, PAZEER and SACRED LIFE all performed at Group level. Siyouni’s aura even reached Australasia as AYLMERTON, one of a small number of foals conceived at Haras de Bonneval on Southern Hemisphere time, turned many heads when taking the Todman Stakes.
Siyouni is now the sire of 26 individual Stakes winners and his progeny has been a hot commodity at all major European sales.
The share that is offered for sale entitles its owner to one nomination every year plus one extra nomination in 2019 and then every other year.
Registrations for the sale are now open on Arqanaonline.com. Bidding is set to kick off at 10:00am CET and close at 6:00pm CET.
The following day, a breeding right to Showcasing will go under the hammer on the same platform, also from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
The son of Oasis Dream who stands at Whitsbury Manor Stud has quickly shot to prominence as an outstanding sire of sprinters/milers. He has already been responsible for 16 Group winners including the 2018 juveniles ADVERTISE, winner of the Phoenix Stakes, and SOLDIER’S CALL, who took the Prix d’Arenberg and Flying Childers Stakes. His most prolific offspring to date remains the top-class sprinter QUIET REFLECTION, who claimed an impressive 6 Group titles.
Conceived off a £25,000 stud fee, Showcasing’s 2018 yearlings sold up to €850,000, 650,000gns, 600,000gns etc.
Registration for the sale is now open.
