UK Tatts Feb Sale: $256k Full Steam
In the UK overnight, agent Tony Nerses (acting on behalf of long-term client Saleh Al Homaizi) paid top price of 160,000 guineas (A$256,000) for 4YO mare Full Steam (Oasis Dream-Western Appeal, by Gone West) at the 1-day Tattersalls February Mixed Sale at Newmarket, to record the 2nd highest price for a filly-in-training in the history of this sale. Full Steam (consigned from Khaled Abdullah's Juddmonte Farms) is a winner in France & contested last year's Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches last year, while her dam Western Appeal is a sister to both European Champion 2YO Zafonic & Gr1-placed Zamindar. Nerses commented: "She will be a welcome addition to the stud - she has a decent pedigree which is hard to get into & she is well-rated."
