Then in mid-September, her seventh foal, three-year-old Yaazy took the Listed Prix Joubert at Saint-Cloud for Jonathan Hammond. Just six days later, her grandson Ribchester landed the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury.
Time will tell whether there is another mare this year with such updates lurking within her pedigree.
The Derrinstown Stud draft is likely to again feature prominently. The outfit has 17 mares catalogued, among them Tomoohat (1242; in foal to Arcano), a $650,000 yearling who was at one time as short as 12/1 for the 2005 1,000 Guineas, and the 2004 Ribblesdale Stakes runner-up Sahool (1421; in foal to Cape Cross).
"She's been bought for an existing client," said Matthew Houldsworth. "She's a proven producer of stakes horses and she's from a good German family. She was also a good racemare herself. I think she looks value."
"She's been bought for Mr Ruia and will go to India," said Rampal. "Mr Ruia stands Varenar, who won the Prix de la Foret, and recently bought Sudirman. She's from a wonderful family."
"She's been bought for a long standing client of many years," said Reilly. "They picked this mare out the very first day that the catalogue appeared online and were very keen to get her providing the physical matched the page."It's a very active, current family."
"She's by a highly sought after sire, as we saw yesterday," said Doyle of the unraced three-year-old, sold by Seskin Stud. "And a half-sister to a very good horse."We tried on the Dubawi colt yesterday and ended up being third best, so it's good to get our heads in front. When you want to go for one, it's a strong market."
"She'll race on next year and then head to Japan as a breeding prospect," said Kodama, who trained Mountain Woman, a placed Montjeu filly out of Group 1 winner Preseli, for Kawakami Racing back in 2012 - 2013. "It's too early to say what her programme will be but she'll have a break first."
"It's a family I know well as I bought Ezana a long time ago for a client - she later became the ancestress of Taghrooda, so it's a family I've done well with," said John O'Connor of Ballylinch Stud. "We're strengthening the broodmare band - I thought she was the nicest mare here today."
"They're two mares with good performance and the client is a big fan of Teofilo and Dawn Approach," said Grassick. "They'll head to Japan straight away."
