Rounding out the top three horses on the day was Rivoli (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}) (lot 9). The son of Riazana (Fr) (Sinndar {Ire}) caught the eye of Success Bloodstock Agency for €42,000. Part of the Ard Erin Stud draft, the grey is well-related, being out of a full-sister to G1 Prix Marcel Boussac victress Rosanara (Fr) (Sinndar {Ire}), while sire Rajsaman (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}) is under the third dam.
