The most expensive yearling was sold in Europe at the Kolgjini Sale on Friday. Aristoteles Face, a colt by Chapter Seven out of Just Not Into You-Donato Hanover), was sold for 4.7 million Swedish krona (SEK), or approximately $478,000. Previously, Green Manalishi had the Swedish record, selling for 3 million SEK. The most expensive yearling before in Europe was the filly Hunter Valley, who sold for 400,000 euros, or about 4.3 million SEK.
Aristoteles Face was purchased by Pontus och Nils Ellerström, owners in the Kolgjini Stable.
Kolgjiini had bought Just Not Into You, carrying a foal by Chapter Seven, for $35,000 at the 2017 Harrisburg sale. The mare was owned by Stefan Balazsi (Order By Stable).
Just Not Into You was sold for just $8,000 as a yearling. She hails from a maternal family of stakes winners; her grandam is Mostly Super while her third and fourth dams are Anamosa Hanover and Anders Favorite, fillies who took marks of 1:56 and change in the 1980s.
Roger Walmann bought also horses for high prices. He purchased Informed Am (Bold Eagle-Extraordinaire) for 1 million SEK and Devil May Care (Maharajah-Giant Diablo) for 1.1 million SEK.
