The Allan Bloodlines purchased ESTEEM CITY (Mark of Esteem – Elle Questro by Rainbow Quest) registered his first win today over 1400 metres (dirt) at Hanshin Racecourse in the colours of Yushun Racing Club

Asked by Yushun (whose people were unable to travel to the sale) to select two yearlings and send them to Japan, Allan Bloodlines bought this imposing colt for only 20,000 guineas at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Part 1, rested him briefly then shipped him with Atlantic Trading Co (Tokyo) to Japan. Having run three previous races, ESTEEM CITY took the lead at Hanshin a furlong from home and won comfortably.
