First Kameko yearling sold makes €310,000
The first yearling by Tweenhills dual Gr.1 winner Kameko to be sold at public auction made €310,000 when bought by the Hong Kong Jockey Club at Arqana’s August Yearling Sale.
The son of QIPCO 2000 Guineas winner Kameko is out of Stakes-winning Galileo mare Roheryn, which makes him a half-brother to dual Listed winner and this year’s narrow Gr.1 Prix d’Ispahan fourth Buckaroo.
Roheryn has also produced useful winners Kihavah, Thousand Oaks and Middle Earth. 3yo Middle Earth is by Kameko’s paternal half-brother Roaring Lion and looked a middle-distance colt going places when winning on Newmarket’s July Course recently.
The Kameko colt out of Roheryn was consigned by Monceaux Stables, who also sold a Kameko filly out of Gr.3 winner Know It All for €170,000 for trainer Yann Barberot and a Kameko colt out of Glories for €140,000 to Yoshito Yahagi.
The Kameko quartet was completed by a colt out of Stakes-placed mare Kodyanna consigned by Haras de la Perelle, who was purchased for €90,000 by Yellow Agency. Kodyanna is also the dam of Thunder Blue, who ran in the Gr.1 Prix Morny at Deauville on Sunday.
We have no doubt that Kameko’s yearlings will continue to light up the sales rings in the coming months.
Kameko stood the 2023 breeding season at Tweenhills at £15,000 (Oct 1st SLF) which looks outstanding value. If you would like to discuss your mare for his 2024 book please contact us on +44 (0)1452 700177.
