Huge Day for Tattersalls 2YOs at The Curragh
The Clive Brittain trained two year old filly RIZEENA headed a massive day for Tattersalls two year olds at The Curragh when adding the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes to her already impressive credentials. Winner of the Group 2 Queen Mary over 5 furlongs at Royal Ascot and Group 1 and 2 placed over 6 furlongs, the 50,000 guineas yearling purchase proved herself amongst the very best of her generation with an impressive turn of foot to land the 7 furlong contest in some style.
Purchased by Rabbah Bloodstock from Round Hill Stud at Book 2 of the 2012 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, RIZEENA has a ROCK OF GIBRALTAR half brother catalogued as lot 794 at Book 2 of the forthcoming October Yearling Sale, also coming from Round Hill Stud.
Earlier on The Curragh card, GREAT WHITE EAGLE further enhanced his already considerable reputation with a comfortable win in the Group 3 Round Tower Stakes. The unbeaten Ballydoyle colt, now as low as 10 - 1 for next year's 2,000 Guineas achieved the highest price ever at a European Breeze Up Sale when purchased by agent Jamie McCalmont for 760,000 guineas at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale.
Another Ballydoyle two year old to enter the 2014 Classic picture was DAZZLING, who earned quotes of 20 - 1 and 16 - 1 for the 1,000 Guineas and Oaks respectively after a hugely impressive debut in the Sapphire Fillies Maiden. Purchased by Blandford Bloodstock for 925,000 guineas at Book 1 of last year's Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, the regally bred daughter of GALILEO is an own sister to Irish 2,000 Guineas winner RODERIC O'CONNOR. DAZZLING's own sister is catalogued as lot 135 at Book 1 of the forthcoming Tattersalls October Yearling Sale coming from Voute Sales who consigned DAZZLING at last year's Book 1.
