UK Tatts Yearlings Day-1: $1.056m Pivotal Filly
John Ferguson out-bid McKeever St Lawrence's Oliver Gaisford St-Lawrence & also paid 480,000 guineas (A$1.056m) for a Pivotal filly (out of Group-placed Lure mare Lurina) consigned by Brian Grassick's Newtown Stud. The filly (a half-sister to Gr2 Great Voltigeur Stakes winner Centennial) is from one of the best families in the stud book: her dam Lurina is a half-sister to both 2-time Gr1 winner Croco Rouge & Alidiva (dam of Gr1 winners Taipan, Ali-Royal & 1000 Guineas winner Sleepytime).
