All 5 of Pariah’s yearlings sold, averaging $162,000 with a top price of $250,000 paid by Ciaron Maher Bloodstock for Bhima Thoroughbreds’  colt out of the Dubawi mare Amerindia. 

That colt had already made a splash when he paraded with his mother at Arrowfield’s Stallion Open House in August 2019.
