ECONOMIC

CLIMATE FORCES CUADRA MADRONOS DISPERSAL

 

On

Saturday evening at Yeguada Torr Duero (Valladolid), the second sale organized

by the stud was held. The sale is part of a dispersal of Felix Sanz’s Cuadra

Madronos, which earlier included the Gr.2-placed Equiano (Acclamation), who was bought by an English owner for

€400,000.

 

The

dispersal has come about because of the economic situation which is currently

pervading the construction and property companies in Spain. It was a depressing

sale, because of the major effort to support Spanish racing and breeding which

Sanz made during the difficult years when La Zarzuela racecourse was

closed. He imported classy mares, as well as sires such as Denver County (Mr

Prospector), Multazem (Kingmambo), Sorcerous (Sadler’s Wells), and the more

recent addition Fol Parade (Parade Marshal), a Spanish Champion, who was bought

as a foal from Argentina Sanz.

 

The

top lot during the auction was Spanish Champion Jacira’s half-sister Lot 22,

Glazed Frost (Verglas), with a beautiful grey filly by With Approval at foot,

and in foal to Sorcerous. She was bought by Argentinean trainer Ignacio Diaz on

behalf of Enrique Beca’s Cuadra Nanina for €35,000. The second top, Lot 16, the

Listed Premio Gobierno Vascosecond Carabiola (Grape Tree Road), in foal to Fol

Parade with a colt foal at foot by Sorcerous was sold for €19,000 to Cuadra

Bogart, owned by Carlos Moyano and Manuel Garci´a de la Calera. The third top

price, Lot 3, last year’s impressive all-weather winner La Chata (Barathea), in foal to

Fol Parade, was sold for €18,000 to Cuadra Enalto, whilst the fourth, was Lot

17, Persian Ruler and Kashwan’s halfsister Beltza (Kalanisi), in foal to Fol

Parade, who was bought for €14,000 by Cuadra Chamarti´n. Last year’s Copa de

Criadores winner Sorayah’s dam, Lot 29, Sarayah (Danehill), was bought for

€13,000 by the trainer Jorge Rodri´guez, on behalf of Julia´n Lopez’s Cuadra

Cielo de Madrid.

 

28

were offered, 27 were sold for an aggregate of €196,500 and an average of

€7,278
