HARAS de Saint Isidro offered two foals by Frankel during Saturday’s session, both with exceptional pedigrees.

The first to go through the ring, a half-sister to Recoletos and Castellar, was sold for €480,000 to Carlos Laffon-Parias. The second, out of the aforementioned Group 2 Prix de la Nonette winner Castellar, realised €590,000 when selling to Juddmonte Farms.

Simon Mockridge, bidding by telephone, said: “We’re delighted with these two foals from the same family that were two very good-looking fillies. Haras de Saint Isidro did great work with them. We’re very happy to have bought the daughter of Castellar. She walks very well and looks to have a bright future.”
