UK Tatts Breeding Stock Day-2: $1.14m Massarra

Wednesday, 2nd December 2009

M.V.Magnier (son of Coolmore principal John Magnier) paid 600,000 guineas (A$1.14m) for stakes-winning 10-year-old mare Massarra (Danehill-Rafha, by Kris) consigned by Voute Sales as agent & offered in-foal to former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo. Massarra’s dam Rafha (who won France’s Gr1 Prix de Diane-French Oaks) has also produced former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit. Magnier told racingpost.com: “She’ll come back to Coolmore & the cross of Massarra’s dam Danehill with Galileo is one that’s worked before. I’d say it’s most likely the lads will send her to Galileo again next year.”
