Shadwell Digs Deep For Dubawi Colt
Matching the 2.6 million guineas paid for Lot 39 (by Dubawi) on the opening day of the Tattersalls October Book-1 Yearling Sale in Newmarket, England, another colt by Darley’s high flying stallion went for an equal sale-topping price (and record for a yearling anywhere in the world this year) overnight. Purchased by Shadwell’s Angus Gold, the yearling is out of Zee Zee Top, the dam of dual Gr1 winner Izzi Top & Gr2 winner Jazzi Top. Added to the allure of the colt is that his impressive winning 2YO sibling Dreamfield is quoted at 20/1 for next year’s Gr1 2,000 Guineas after a top performance at Nottingham just before the sale.
