$2.7Million for G1 Thousand Guineas Winner

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday May 28

Madame Pommery only won two races for the Chris Waller stable, but one of them was the Group I MRC Thousand Guineas and that made the daughter of No Nay Never (USA) a hot commodity at the Magic Millions National Sale on Tuesday when selling for $2.7million as a breeding proposition only.

Madame Pommery sold for $2.7million to Coolmore.

It was the second trip around the Gold Coast sale ring for Madame Pommery, who was bought by Waller Racing/ Mulcaster Bloodstock for $150,000 in 2021 from the Coolmore draft and it was Coolmore that had the winning bid on her this time around.

Madame Pommery was bought for a ladies syndicate put together by Chris Waller Racing’s Sophie Baker and the girls have certainly had a profitable ride. She won over $860,000 on the track and has now delivered the biggest pay day of all in the sale ring.

Foaled and raised at Coolmore, Madame Pommery is a half-sister to Group III placed Moet Down and is the best of four winners from Godolphin bred Exceed and Excel mare Cancel, a full sister to Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes winner Earthquake.

Cancel was bought by Coolmore at this sale back in 2018 for $400,000 and remains in their broodmare band with her Wootton Bassett (GB) yearling colt selling for $260,000 at Inglis Easter this year to Waller Racing/ Mulcaster Bloodstock.

Cancel has a colt to follow by Home Affairs and is now in foal to St Mark’s Basilica (Fr).
