Galileo’s Third Millionaire Becomes Orby Top Lot
Wednesday’s Goffs Orby Sale saw Galileo sire his third millionaire of the week, as his daughter out of blue hen Green Room consigned by Ballylinch Stud set a sales-topping price of €3million.
MV Magnier paired up with Westerberg’s Georg von Opel to secure Vimal and Gillian Khosla's full-sister to Group 1 winners Together Forever and Forever Together, whose other siblings include Lord Shanakill. Their dam Green Room also supplied last year’s sales topper, another daughter of Galileo, who sold for €3.2million to Phoenix Thoroughbreds.
Commenting on the sales topper, MV Magnier said, “Firstly I would say that I’m delighted for Vimal and Gillian. It's a great result for them and they've been rewarded for putting a lot of faith in Galileo over the years. Obviously it's been a very lucky family for us already with Together Forever and Forever Together and this mare has produced another Group 1 winner in Lord Shanakill so she's an outstanding producer. We are lucky to be able to buy a filly like this as she really is a collector's item.”
