Consigned by Baroda & Colbinstown Studs, Lot 1813 WHATDOIWANTTHATFOR in-foal to MUHAARAR was knocked down for 500,000 gns to Akira Katayama. The listed winning and multiple Group race placed mare was the first ever broodmare purchase for Mr Katayama. Mr Katayama said of the reasons behind the purchase, “I like to try and do this at a top level from the start. I like the pedigree very much and of course the Muhaarar cover is very attractive too. Whatdoiwantthatfor was a very good racemare too.” The daughter of Kodiac from the family of dual Group 1 winner WHITE HEART will remain in England to have her first foal before she will be shipped to Japan next year.

Earlier in the sale, Lot 1792 AVENUE GABRIEL, also in foal to MUHAARAR fetched 375,000 gns for consignor Ballyhimkin Stud when sold to Haras du Cadran. The dual listed winner and multiple Group 2 and 3 placed mare is by Champs Elysees, out of a Gone West mare. "She was a very good racemare, she is lovely type and in-foal to a very good horse on an early cover," said Monsieur Talvard of Haras du Cadran.

China Horse Club snapped up DUSKY QUEEN, Lot 1790 who is also in foal to MUHAARAR. The Listed winning daughter of Shamardal was sold for 370,000 gns and was also consigned by Ballyhimkin Stud.

The final mare sold in-foal to 2015 Champion Sprinter MUHAARAR was Lot 1803 HOW’S SHE CUTTIN’, who was knocked down to Barronstown Stud for 260,000 gns. Consigned by Oghill House Stud, HOW’S SHE CUTTIN’ is the dam of multiple Group 1 placed WASHINGTON DC.

Whatdoiwantthatfor, Avenue Gabriel, Dusky Queen and How’s She Cuttin’ are just four of 81% of MUHAARAR’s first book of 129 mares that were Listed or Group race winners/producers; with 19 mares being either Gr.1 or Classic winners themselves or the producers of Group 1 winners. MUHAARAR stands for an unchanged fee of £30,000 for his second season in 2017.
