Harzand Dam Fetches 2 Million Guineas
The second day of the Tattersalls December Mare Sale was, as ever, a truly international affair with buyers from four continents represented by the top ten lots. The headline act of the day was Hazariya, the dam of dual Derby winner Harzand, who topped the session when bringing 2 million guineas. A total of 186 lots sold for 25,512,500 guineas with an average of 137,164 guineas and median of 60,000 guineas. A packed sales ring turned out to see Hazariya, in foal to Invincible Spirit, knocked down to Coolmore's MV Magnier, standing with Michael Jooste of South African-based Mayfair Speculators, for 2 million guineas. "She is a lovely mare, and any mare who breeds a Derby winner is special. Dermot Weld trains the two-year-old Haripour and he was full of praise of him to me," Magnier said. "She is for my parents and Michael and Derrick - and she will go to Galileo."
