PEARLY SHELLS’ SON AMONG TOP LOTS AT LA TESTE
Pearly Shells’ yearling colt by Kendargent was among the top lots at the Osarus La Teste sale on September 4th. Presented by Hubert Honore on behalf of the Haras de Saint Pair the colt was sold for 80.000 euros to the trainer Frederic Rossi acting on behalf of prominent French owner Kamel Chehboub. The pair had won a Group race together at ParisLongchamp only a few days previously with the very promising two year old colt Kenway.
The winner of the Prix Vermeille in 2002 Pearly Shells is the dam of seven winners including the Group/stakes performers Pearl Banks, Pearls or Passion and Pearly Avenue. This family continues to enjoy success at the highest level and includes the 2019 Group and Listed winners Pelligrina and Lucky Lycra.
