BBAG Yearlings Day-2: $256k Johannesburg Colt
Tom Goff from Blandford Bloodstock paid €160,000 (A$256,000) for a colt by Coolmore shuttler Johannesburg (out of Coronado's Quest mare Marcelia) consigned from Gestut Brummerhof (the sale's leading vendor). The colt (whose dam is a half-sister to Gr1 Champagne Stakes winner The Groom Is Red) "is from a family which has already produced the Gr1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes winner Where Or When, as well as Gr1 Irish Oaks heroine Shawanda & Gr1 Japanese Derby winner King Kamehameha," noted racingpost.co.uk.
