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.”
