Mare in foal to Mehmas tops Arqana February at €315,000
Mehmas was back in the news on Wednesday as the covering sire of the Arqana February Sale-topper Rasmiya.
Sold by Haras de Bouquetot, Rasmiya was snapped by Michael Donohoe and Eamonn Reilly of the BBA Ireland for €315,000. Rasmiya is a Galileo half-sister to the Group winners Above Average and Sent From Heaven, and already a proven producer herself having foaled the Listed-winning Jouza.
“She’s a very nice mare,” said Michael Donohoe. “She’ll first go to Ireland and have her foal, and then we’ll decide afterwards which stallion she’ll be covered by. She’s been bought for one of our clients.”
