Spectrum Mare – Sale Topper

Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith paid 900,000gns for the sale-topper 13 year old Ventura (Ire) (Spectrum {Ire}), offered as one of Makfi (GB)’s first book of mares this year. The mare, owned by the Al-Thani family’s Qatar Bloodstock, was bought for 260,000gns at Tattersalls last year, but her daughter Moonlight Cloud (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire} ) subsequently won this year’s G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest. M.V. Magnier outbid first Grant Pritchard-Gordon and finally Liam Norris for the mare.
“She’s for Derrick and Michael and they wanted her to send to Pour Moi (Ire) [Montjeu {Ire}] next year,” confirmed Magnier.
