Magic Millions Select Mares Day-2: $740k Defiant Dame
Coolmore Stud's Tom Magnier paid $740,000 for stakes-winning 3YO filly Defiant Dame (More Than Ready-Marcovette, by St Covet) consigned by Evergreen Stud Farm as agent. Defiant Dame was sold-in-foal (in her 1st season at stud) to Coolmore's multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion & former Australian Champion 2nd-Season Sire Fastnet Rock & Magnier commented: "She is by More Than Ready & is in-foal to Fastnet Rock - she's an attractive package. As well, she is a great looking mare & we're thrilled to have added her to the quality Coolmore broodmare band. She will be foaled-down & will return to Fastnet Rock this Spring - in fact you can say she will be married to him!"
