Tiznow Colt Sell For Ocala Sale Record
Sunday, 30 April 2017: John Moynihan made the bid on behalf of Coolmore’s M. V. Magnier to secure the colt out of the Distorted Humor mare Moonbow, the dam of one winner from three foals to race.
Moonbow is out of the stakes-winning Storm Cat mare Storm Beauty, a half-sister to G3 winner Buffum (Bernardini) and Listed winner Stormy West (Gone West) from the family of G1 winner Maplejinsky (Nijinsky).
Maplejinksy is the dam of G1 winners Sky Beauty (Blushing Groom) and Dayjur (Danzig) and G2 winner Gold Beauty (Mr. Prospector).
"He is a beautiful horse who moved beautiful," Moynihan said. "He's a great big horse. Any horse that can go that fast and looks like that, we've got to take a chance on.
“We just hope he materialises into what I think he can be."
Alessandro Marconi, on behalf of Al Aasfa Racing, paid $US1 million for a daughter of More Than Ready from the stakes placed Clever Trick mare Miss Mary Apples, making the filly a half-sister to stakes winners Dr. Diamonds Prize (Pure Prize) and Miss Red Delicious (Empire Maker).
The $IS million figure was matched when Red Baron's Barn and Rancho Temescal LLC purchased a colt by Union Rags out of the A.P. Indy mare Poco Mas, whose four foals to race three have all been winners including Argentinian G2 winner and G1-placed Carinosa (Tiznow).
The colt’s second dam is the Listed winner Adel (Strawberry Road), also the dam of G1 winner Interpol (English Channel).
At the close of trade 171 horses sold for US$17,397,500, up 24.3 per cent over the gross for 164 sold in the third session a year ago.
The average price increased 19.3 per cent from US$85,290 in 2016 to US$101,740.
