UK Tatts Day-1: $520,000 Montjeu Filly
Stephen Hillen out-bid Gordian Troeller & paid 200,000 guineas (A$520,000) for a Montjeu filly (from Darshaan mare Caladira). The filly is a 3/4 sister to last season's Gr1 Racing Post Trophy winner Septimus & "looks set to carry the colours of professional punter Harry Findlay's mother Maggie," noted racingpost.co.uk. The filly was previously "picked up for just €43,000 (A$68,000) as a yearling at Goffs last year by vendor Con Marnane."
