"It's a young family with plenty going on it," said Philippe Brosset, manager of Mezeray. "Her half-brother, Golden Goal, was bought by John Ferguson and then there's a two-year-old out of [granddam] Kelsey Rose that was placed first time out for Moyglare - I'm a fan of their operation."We're trying to get some faster, more precocious mares. She was a good, fast filly and she ran 25 times - that toughness is typical of the family. She might be one for Dark Angel."
“When he dropped her back in trip as a three-year-old, that was it. She was good.”
"It's just a beautiful pedigree, one of the best ones in the book," said Wigan, acting on behalf of an undisclosed client. "She was an acceptable model, if a bit on the small side."
"The Miniver Rose had five starts in Australia across the Mick Price and Freedman stables and beat just one runner home in total. She was an Aussie dud.
“We just had to get rid of her, Phil’s health wasn’t good, I wanted to take her back to England to sell, now I wish I did, 500,000 guineas, really!”
“In this game you get used to things like this happening."
"Plans are open," said Lillingston. "She could be retired to be bred from or she might be one to race on in the US. She goes on a variety of ground, vets well and stays a mile and eighth so she could be one for the US."I was underbidder to Philippa Cooper on [granddam] Fallen Star and have been cursing my luck ever since! It's a good family and I like Zoffany - I bought his first stakes winner Argentero, so we've done well with him."
"The dam has a Rip Van Winkle foal and is in foal to No Nay Never," explained Simon Sweeting of Overbuy Stud. "It's a good, improving family. She's been with me for about a month just to let down because if she hadn't sold today, she would have gone back into training and she needed a break."
"John Gosden feels Enable might be quite useful and so do the team at Juddmonte," said Newsells' general manager Julian Dollar. "So that's the appeal and this filly will probably go to him."Nathaniel has a number of promising horses in the pipeline and we're very keen to keep supporting him."
"She'll go to Al Kazeem," said Lane. "We're big fans of Oasis Dream mares and she's a nice physical, very athletic. It's just a great family and there's a bit of speed there at the bottom."
"She's a lovely filly," said Jonno Mills of Rabbah Bloodstock. "It's a beautiful page. We haven't looked at matings yet and this will be one that's decided by Sheikh Juma."
"She was absolutely the best horse of the day," said Skiffington. "It's a fantastic family and I thought she was a beauty."
The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor has been particularly progressive this season for Joseph Murphy and recently ended her season on a high when lowering the colours of Zawraq in the Trigo Stakes at Leopardstown.
“She’s for an Irish client and hopefully she’ll provide a bit of fun next season,” said Oxx. “She’s a steady improver - her last run was her best one. She's had a long season so she will have a break and we will look for something in the spring.”
