Duramente colt out of Gulfstream Park Oaks winner Champaign Everyone tops day two of JRHA Selective Sale
Japan Racehorse Association
A fiery Duramente colt from Shadai Stallion Station topped the Japan Racing Horse Association (JRHA) Selective Sale colt section on Tuesday when it sold to Red Horse for ¥320,000,000 (about £1.93m/2 .33 M€).
Once considered the leading candidate for the next leading sire in Japan following the loss to Deep Impact, the 2015 Japanese Derby winner sadly succumbed to acute colitis last August and his current batch of foals are his latest crop.
Her son (lot 393) is out of 2019 Gulfstream Park Oaks winner Champagne Everyone, a Street Sense daughter of Year 1 Santa Maria Handicap winner Miss Loren.
With the untimely losses of Deep Impact and King Kamehameha, the search for the next leading stallion in Japan continues.
Bricks And Mortar made such a good impression in his second career, and that was reinforced when his colt (325) out of a half-sister to young Japanese champion Goshawk Ken was sold to Tetsuhide Kunimoto for ¥310,000,000 .
The 2019 American Horse of the Year, who has stood in Shadai since retiring from racing in 2020, has his first yearlings this term and is clearly held in high regard by Kunimoto.
He said: “I’ve visited Northern Farm several times over the last few months and found this colt just getting better and better. That’s what I liked about him.
“I don’t know who the next stallion in the lead is, although I think Bricks And Mortar is a suitable stallion for racing in Japan as he is a turf champion himself and most of his yearlings look like lively and fast turf horses. This colt let me have a dream.”

Another Shadai resident at Epiphaneia, sire of Grade 1 winners Eforia, Daring Tact and Circle Of Life, sold 16 yearlings on Tuesday, grossing ¥1,666,500,000, including a filly out of the champion American She’s A Tiger. . Consigned as lot 353, it sold to Nicks Co. Ltd for ¥280,000,000.
Hiroyasu Takeuchi, racing director at Nicks Co. Ltd, said: “I studied her pedigree and was convinced she should have inherited a lot of speed.
“She is also very valuable as a future broodmare and I thought she was worth paying that amount. I thought we might have to pay 300 million yen to buy her, so I’m happy with the price. “
A total of 236 foals were offered at the session, with 225 sold for sales of ¥12,892,500,000, an 18% increase from last year’s sale.
The average price was ¥57,300,000, an increase of 11.7%, while the clearance rate increased from 92.6% in 2021 to 95.3% this year. The turnover, the average price and the liquidation rate are new records during this colt session.
Teruya Yoshida, President of JRHA, said, “It was a record market here last year and I didn’t expect to beat it this year. The market was very strong from top to bottom and I was very impressed with the depth of buyers.
“The high demand for young horses was maintained for two days and the success rate, 95.3%, is incredible.
He continued, “I am very happy to see that so many people are interested in owning racehorses and very happy to see that they are very keen to make a big investment in the blood horse market.
“The quality of the mares we have in Japan is very high and the quality of the young horses offered here yesterday and today was also very high. Japanese-bred horses perform very well in international races in the United States and the Middle East, and this can only help boost this market.
“I think Japanese riders will continue to do well on the international stage and I hope the market next year will be as strong as this year.”
