Mag­nier gets no run for his money

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

BIG-SPEND­ING Phoenix Thor­ough­breds have made a no­table im­pact at the year­ling sales in re­cent weeks on both sides of the At­lantic.

They came out best on two oc­ca­sions in du­els with Cool­more’s MV Mag­nier at Goffs Orby sale in Eire ear­lier this month.

Mag­nier bid €3 mil­lion for a filly by Galileo out of Green Room who has pro­duced three Group 1 win­ners. But she was then knocked down to Phoenix Thor­ough­breds for €3.2 mil­lion.

The pre­vi­ous af­ter­noon Phoenix again saw off Mag­nier at a cost of €2 mil­lion Eu­ros to pur­chase a Galileo sis­ter to the mul­ti­ple Group 1 win­ning miler Alice Springs.
