$300,000 for Zoffany Colt ex Green Mirage

Outstanding young sire Zoffany has only a handful of yearlings in the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sale, but his colt from Green Mirage proved a hot item when fetching $300,000 on Thursday. Consigned by Coolmore and purchased by Jadeskye Racing/ Gerald Ryan, the colt is a half-brother to three minor winners from Green Desert mare Green Mirage, a grand-daughter of French Group I winner Loving Claim.

Zoffany has just completed his Southern Hemisphere season in Australia where he covered an impressive 211 mares.
