19/07/02 Bianconi's Hot Sale Result in Kentucky
Impeccably bred sire prospect Bianconi has made a dynamic start to his breeding career by providing one of the highest priced lots at this week's Fasig Tipton Select July Yearling Sale at Lexington, Kentucky.

A colt by the Collingrove Stud shuttler sold for US$235,000 (approx A$430,000) on the first day of the two day sale on Wednesday.

Out of the Gold Stage mare Wellbustmybuttons, the colt was purchased by leading American stud Overbrook Farm.

The chestnut colt, catalogued as lot number 225, was offered for sale by Denali Stud, who were acting as agent.

A half brother to four winners from as many runners, the colt was eagerly sought out by buyers before being knocked down for $235,000.

With a converted price of A$430,000, the colt sold for the equivalent of 55 times Bianconi's 2002 Australian service fee.

There's little wonder the serious buyers and breeders are looking toward Bianconi as a potential star in the breeding world.

He is arguably the best bred stallion in the southern hemisphere. By the renowned champion sire of the sires Danzig, he is from the USA Broodmare of the Year Fall Aspen.

As well as producing the Group Two star Bianconi, Fall Aspen is the dam of the Group One winners Timber Country, Northern Aspen, Hamas and Fort Wood and the Group Two winners Colorado Dancer and Elle Seule.

Colorado Dancer is the dam of the champion galloper and Dubai World Cup winner Dubai Millenium, while Elle Seule is now the dam of the Group One winning stars Mehthaaf and Elnadim.

Bianconi will again be standing the 2002 breeding season for the great value service fee of $7,700 (inc GST with free return) at Collingrove Victoria.
