Half-Sister To Bolshoi Ballet Sells For 925000gns

Sister To Bolshoi Ballet Continues Demand For No Nay Never

No Nay Never ended the Tattersalls Book 1 Yearling Sale on a high, as his daughter out of Alta Anna was sold to Al’Shiraa Farms for 925,000gns.

The Glenvale Stud-consigned bay boasted plenty of appeal on pedigree as a half-sister to Grade 1 heroine Bolshoi Ballet (Galileo), but her final price proved she was a standout in her own right.

Stud manager Kieran Lalor bid on behalf of Al’Shiraa Farms; the racing and breeding operation of Sheikha Fatima Bint Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

“She is a sister to Bolshoi Ballet and we thought she may have been the best physical,” Lalor commented. “She is a strong filly, a lovely walker. She has good substance and is from a good family. She comes from a great operation and we are very excited to have her.”

No Nay Never enjoyed a strong start to the sale when a full-sister to Arizona (No Nay Never) sold to Cheveley Park Stud for a session-topping 825,000gns.
