The Hong Kong Jockey Club purchased an athletic Requinto colt for €85,000 (approximately HK$790,000) at last week’s Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale.
Lot 66 caught the eye as an attractive type, and a value purchase, being from a family that has produced winners and black type earners in Europe, North America, Japan and Dubai. Among those are the G1 Yellow Ribbon Handicap winner Super Staff, the G1 Dubai World Cup-placed Public Purse, and Rob Roy, a G2 winner and G1-placed in the UK and USA.
The bay colt’s young sire, Requinto, was a fast, precocious G2-winning galloper and is by Dansili, out of the champion two-year-old filly, Damson.
