Purchased from the Arqana Vente 2, which provided 2 Classic winners in 2018, this filly is by NO NAY NEVER. Read more about her sire here:

Since sending our first yearling to Mark Johnston just 3 years ago, Ventura Knight, we’ve experienced nothing but success, with Ventura Knight winning 7 races and being rated a career high of 104. On the back of that, we sent Mark the subsequent Listed, Group 3 winning and Group 2 placed Marie’s Diamond. In fact, every horse we have had race with Mark has been a winner and we see no reason why anything should change with this year’s Mark Johnston yearling cohort!

The biggest, breakthrough sire of 2018 and 2019 is No Nay Never, there can be no question of that. He’s the sire of the mightly dual Group 1 winner Ten Sovereigns, Wichita, the recent Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes and of our recent Ripon, Hornblower Conditions race winner, Ventura Lightning, so we are beginning to fall in love with the sire. We’ve had to push the boat out to be lucky enough to secure his fantastic yearling filly by the super sire.

Our Mark Johnston yearling filly, hails from a fabulous family that excels with its 2yo’s, but being out of a winning, Lemon Drop Kid mare, there is every reason to believe that this good sized, athletic filly, will have the scope and substance to train on, into her 3yo career too. Mark has an illustrious list of top class fillies, notably Attraction, Main Edition, Raffle Prize, West End Girl and Walk In Marrakesh to name but a few, so we’d love to believe our filly could emulate her stablemates in 2020 and 2021.

She qualifies for French Owner Premiums, which adds 64% to all earnings achieved on French soil, so we will clearly have one eye on opportunities across the Channel should they arise for our latest No Nay Never acquisition.

We can’t wait to see her on the track in 2020 and beyond, from a family that contains the stallions No Nay Never, Lemon Drop Kid, Kingmambo, Johannesburg, Elusive Quality and Danzig, you’d struggle to find a better bred individual.

Please see her walk and profile videos in the Gallery.

Listen to what our Bloodstock agent Nicolas de Watrigant said after he signed for her here. 

Read the post sale story about her purchase here:

Progress report (12th Sept): She has now passed the steps of lunging with one and two reins, stopping and starting on command, long reining within the lunge ring and arena and along the lane meeting other horses. She has also now been leant over, ridden around the stable and progressed to the stage on the accompanying video shown. She will be ridden away over the next couple of days.

Pedigree Update (4th November): Racing Post - "Ten Sovereigns' success in the July Cup was the pinnacle of another big year for No Nay Never, who has again received a sizeable fee increase, having been upped to €150,000 for 2020, just 12 months after his fee was quadrupled to €100,000."
