Lady Maroal’s brave Listed Champagne Stakes win at Ellerslie on Saturday added further black type to her half-sister Lady Fenuala’s pedigree with her set to sell on Sunday night on gavelhouse.com.
Currently for sale in the 135 Lot Rider Horse NZ Dispersal Sale, their dam Lady Dehere was the second highest rated juvenile filly of her generation in New Zealand and winner of the Gr.2 Matamata Breeders Stakes among other black-type performances.
Lady Moroal joins multiple Group winner Oracy, dual Listed winner The Lady and Listed Soliloquy Stakes runner up Ruthless Lady as Lady Dehere’s fourth black-type offspring.
“It was a very, very brave effort from the filly, who just got a little bit lost once she hit the front in the straight. The other horse really gave her a run for her money, but it was good to see her keep lifting and get the win,” trainer Nigel Tiley told NZ Racing News.
Like all bar two of the Lots, Lady Fenuala is offered for unreserved sale with bidding closing at the earlier than usual time of 5pm (NZ) on Sunday 25 April. She is among a number of mares in the auction who are in foal to two-time Horse of the Year winner Mongolian Khan.
