UK Tatts Day-4: $260k Fusaichi Pegasus Filly
In the UK auction ring, Newmarket-based agent Richard Frisby (buying on behalf of Ptarmigan Bloodstock, the investment company set up with David Loder) out-bid fellow agents Dick O'Gorman & Dermot Farrington to pay the Day-4 top price of 100,000 guineas (A$260,000) for 3YO filly Lovely Hidenka (consigned from Clive Brittain's Carlburg Stables) during the final session of the UK Tattersalls July Sale at Park Paddocks. The daughter of Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus is out of Mt Livermore mare Eliza (1992 US Champion 2YO filly & a half-sister to Gr1 Santa Anita Derby winner Dinard). It capped a busy week for Frisby, who purchased 6 lots during the sale for 578,000 guineas (A$1.502m).
