The Fastest Horse From Arguably The Best Breeze Up Sale, Arqana.
From the sale which, last year, produced the Cheveley Park winner LEZOO & the Mill Reef winner SAKHEER, we were delighted and thrilled to be able to purchase, for a hugely sizeable €200,000, by our standards, THE FASTEST of all the 192 catalogued colts AND fillies at Europe’s Premier Breeze Up Sale at the weekend.
Watch her breeze, here:
She oozed class from start to finish over the, roughly, 2.4f breeze up track at Deauville racecourse, France. She was 2nd quickest over the first furlong but went on to assert over the ensuing 200m to ease into first place in “the race” (judged by timings) and motored through and beyond the line as part of the gallop out to comfortably maintain her number one, elite spot.
Richard Fahey reliably informed us, prior to purchasing her, that the vendor of this horse had been “raving about her, to me!” That made us even more keen to secure her for the Musley Bank maestro, given the exploits of last season’s Group 1 winning & the ROA’s “Outstanding Juvenile of 2022” The Platinum Queen, for Richard, from his Malton based Musley Bank Stables.
Indeed, The Platinum Queen was also THE FASTEST horse at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale and so that's been a real line of sucess for us - fastest filly first!

If last year’s racetrack results from this sale are anything to go by, you wouldn’t want to be coming home with anything other than this year’s “winner” of “the breeze up race”.
Being by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT a World-renowned Broodmare Sire, any decent or serious level of on track performance e.g., achieving ‘black type’ would ensure she’s a valuable commodity for life, even once her racing days are over.
She’s bred to be a fast filly and a very talented filly, so sprinting should be her game. She’s a decent size, so not just a here and now filly, she should ‘go on’ too.
