Foals out of Amphitrite, Mosheen set to make splash at JRHA Sale
The progeny of Group One winners Mosheen and Amphitrite are set to go through the ring from Monday in the JRHA 2022 Select Sale in Hokkaido.
Colts and fillies out of elite Australian mares have proven extraordinarily popular through the Japan Racing Horse Association Sale in recent years. Among the 243 yearlings and 241 foals catalogued for this year’s Sale, which starts on Monday and concludes on Tuesday, are three sons and three daughters of mares that raced with distinction in Australia.
The second foal from G1 Thousand Guineas winner Amphitrite, a foal filly by Satono Diamond, is catalogued as Lot 376 of the Sale and will sell on Tuesday, along with a colt by Epiphaneia out of four-time Group One winner Mosheen, Lot 367.
Other foals with strong connections to Australia are Lot 360, a colt by Kizuna out of another G1 VRC Oaks winner, Kirramosa, and Lot 517, a filly by multiple Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow out of Australian-bred Nicamorae, who is the half-sister to Group One-winning pair Nicconi and Niconero.
The yearling section features another colt out of Mosheen, Lot 76, who is by Arrowfield shuttler Maurice, as well as a Lord Kanaloa filly out of Group Two-winning Fastnet Rock mare Lumosty, catalogued as Lot 56.
Of the six lots mentioned above, five are offered by Northern Farm, which has built strong relationships in Australia and has purchased several elite mares, either privately or through public auction, in Australia in recent times.
