First-crop Duke Of Marmalade juvenile Horizon Sky (2c Duke Of Marmalade-Mala Mala, by Brief Truce) starred at Tattersalls on Monday when selling for 98,000gns to continue his racing career on America’s west coast.
An easy Gowran Park nursery winner for David Wachman, the 80,000 euros yearling was snapped up by Frank Lyons when offered in the Newmarket sale ring with agent Stephen Hillen coming off second best.
“My guess is that Jeff Mullins will train him,” Lyons told www.racingpost.com. “He’ll ship out straight away. We’ve followed him for a while and actually went to see him in Ireland at David Wachman’s. We tried to buy him then but David said that as he was in this sale, he would like to keep his word and send him here.”
