Tattersalls Oct Book-1 Sale Day-2: 1.3 Million Guineas Galileo Filly
On Day-2 of the 3-day Tattersalls October Book-1 Yearling Sale Galileo fillies were in hot demand, and John Magnier entered the fray once bidding had passed a million guineas on Lot 249 (Galileo-Shadow Song, by Pennekamp). A full-sister to Gr1 winner Together & three-quarter sister to Gr1 winner Jan Vermeer, the Camas Park Stud-consigned filly was knocked down to Magnier on behalf of Coolmore for 1.3 million guineas after seeing off challenges from Grant Pritchard-Gordon & US agent David Ingordo. "She is a lovely filly," said O'Byrne. "She is from a family that we know well and is quite a similar sort to Together. I had seen her at Camas Park ahead of the sale, but I thought she was the best filly here."
