UK Tatts Breeding Stock Day-2: $779k Ask For The Moon

Wednesday, 2nd December 2009

Seskin Stud’s Eddie Fitzpatrick paid 410,000 guineas (A$779,000) for Gr1-winning 8YO mare Ask For The Moon (Dr Fong-Lune Rouge, by Unfuwain) consigned from Ballyhimikin Stud in Ireland & sold in-foal to dual Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Holy Roman Emperor. Fitzpatrick told racingpost.com: “She’s for myself & a couple of partners to go back to Seskin Stud. She was a great looking young mare & she had the best foal in the sale last week, that had a lot to do with us buying her. She was an obvious choice & she’ll probably go back to Galileo on the strength of the foal.”
