Galileo sister to Japan and Mogul makes 3.4m guineas at Tattersalls


The highlight of the Newsells Park Stud 2020 yearling consignment was the Galileo filly out of Shastye and she lived up to expectations when selling for 3,400,000 guineas to MV Magnier.

This beautifully bred filly was the highest priced yearling sold in Europe or North America this year.

Underbidders included David Redvers and Oliver St Lawrence but it was the Coolmore team, stood alongside Georg Von Opel, who were successful.

“It is a great result for everybody involved, she has been bought in partnership with Westerberg,” said MV Magnier. “She is a very nice filly, she is a very nice mover, like Japan and Mogul. The mare produces great-looking stock and great racehorses, let’s hope she does it one more time.”

Shastye 2020 yearling

The filly is a full-sister to the Group 1 winners Japan and Mogul, recent winner of the Gr.1 Grand Prix de Paris. Shastye’s yearlings have enjoyed a remarkable time in the Tattersalls sale ring, with Sir Isaac Newton, Mogul and this filly all realising three million guineas or more.

“Those are the easy ones to sell!” smiled an emotional Julian Dollar of breeder and consignor Newsells Park Stud. “The team lead by Mark Grace, the yearling manager, has done a wonderful job. He loves that filly so he will be very sad, but he has done a great job.”

The seven yearlings out of Shastye to be sold at Tattersalls have realised just shy of a remarkable 14 million guineas.

Newsells Park Stud was also the leading consignor at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale for the third year running.
