06/05/02 Balletomane Bound for Europe after $750,000 Sale
Internationally acclaimed broodmare Balletomane is set for a future in Europe after she was sold for a current topping price of $750,000 at the Australian Broodmare Sale in Sydney.

Offered as lot 376, the mare, a daughter of the legendary Sadler's Wells, was knocked down to Melbourne based bloodstock agent Rob Roulston.

Bidding for the bay mare kicked off at $600,000 before stalling at her sale price of $750,000.

Roulston said the mare would be set for a further international career after she foals down to the Kentucky Derby champion Fusaichi Pegasus.

"She'll be going back to the Northern Hemisphere," Roulston said.

"She'll have the Fusaichi Pegasus here, and then head back to Europe," he added.

Balletomane, a winner at a mile and a half in Great Britain, is already the dam of the Breeders' Cup winner and three time Group One winner Silic. Her four runners to date have all been winners.

She is a daughter of the AJC Oaks runner-up Franconia, who in turn is a half sister to the stakes winning pair of Prudent Miss and Glasshouse.

The mare was offered for sale by leading New South Wales based stud farm Arrowfield, who were acting as agents.
