No Nay Never Filly Tops Day 1 of Tattersalls December Foal Sale

Trade on the first day of the Tattersalls December Foal Sale was headed by a NO NAY NEVER filly at 80,000 guineas and was one of two lots to top 50,000 guineas on the day. A total of 154 lots sold for an aggregate of 1,614,850 guineas at an average of 10,486 guineas and a median of 6,000 guineas.

Casse Secures No Nay Never Filly for 80,000 Guineas

The opening day of the Tattersalls December Foal Sale was topped by a daughter of Coolmore Stud’s popular sire NO NAY NEVER, purchased by US based agent Justin Casse for 80,000 guineas.

Consigned by Voute Sales on behalf of breeders Killashee House Limited, the February born filly is out of the DUKE OF MARMALADE mare VELVET RIBBON and from the bountiful family of 14-time Group 1 winning super mare GOLDIKOVA.

"She has been bought to race," said Casse after the sale.

"I think I have bought four by the sire, but this is the first who won't be for resale. Obviously No Nay Never has done well, but he also appeals to the US market because of the Scat Daddy factor.

"It is a little way back, but this filly is from one of the best fillies' families there has been - that of the champion Goldikova.

"If it suits racehorse owners to be a little patient, buying a foal is a good way in and this filly is cheaper than sending a mare to the sire now!"

Overbury Stud's Adaay Colt Makes 55,000 Guineas

The progeny of Whitsbury Manor Stud’s first season sire ADAAY were popular on Day 1 of the Tattersalls December Foal Sale and none more so than the son of Group placed mare LAMENTATION who was knocked down to John Cullinan of Horse Park Stud for 55,000 guineas.

Overbury Stud consigned the bay colt who is a half brother to four winners and from the family of the dual Group 3 winning and Classic placed mare CRYSTAL GAZING.

Cullinan, who plans to offer the foal as a yearling at Tattersalls next Autumn, commented;

"I have a couple more Adaays in my mind, one later today and one tomorrow. They look racey and athletic – he was a good racehorse and is a son of Kodiac.

"The mare was a good runner and has produced a good horse in Elegiac, while her Henrythenavigator yearling has gone to Mark Johnston – if anyone can win with one by the time we return to sale, it is him!"

The Tattersalls December Foal Sale continues at 10am on Thursday, November 29.
