Tuesday, July 13, 2010

The JRHA sale also generated news for another U.S.-based stallion who had earned the Horse of the Year title. Shadwell Farm's INVASOR (ARG), America's champion runner of 2006 and winner of the G1 DubaiWorld Cup the following year, was represented by his first yearling reported to sell at auction anywhere.

INVASOR's chestnut son out of Concern Nacca (Concern), a half-sister to Grade I winner Hystericalady (Distorted Humor) and a daughter of Chilean championSacramentada (Chi) (Northair), was sold for -20-million ($222,222) to Nakatsuji Akira. One of the new owners in Japanese racing, the Kyoto-based Akira, who is in the construction and property leasing business, was
making his first purchase at a JRHA sale. The INVASOR colt was sold by Tsuji Bokujo, which bought Concern Nacca for $450,000 at the 2008 Keeneland November sale.
