    Lot 379: b c Quality Road - Arravale (Arch)
     
    The below colt turned a good profit for Guy O'Callaghan's Grangemore Stud when selling for €260,000 to SackvilleDonald. The colt was led out unsold at $85,000 at last year's Keeneland November Sale.
     
    He is a half-brother to the Grade 2-placed Nancy O and out of 2006 Canadian Horse of the Year Arravale.

    Lot 456: ch f Teofilo - Louve Imperiale (Giant's Causeway)
     
    The first highlight of the Wildenstein dispersal is this filly, a flashy granddaughter of star producer Louveterie who sells for €120,000 to Stephen Collins of Derrinstown Stud/Shadwell Estates.
     
    She is the third foal out of an unplaced half-sister to Loup Sauvage and Loup Solitaire and a great-granddaughter of 1970 Oaks heroine Lupe, who was purchased by Daniel Wildenstein from Gladys Joel at the end of her racing career.
