Gan Teorainn First To Seven Figures at Tattersalls


Gan Teorainn | Tattersalls

Gan Teorainn (Ire) (Saxon Warrior {Jpn}) was the first to cross the seven-figure threshold when hammering for an even 1 million guineas to the bid of the Michael Donohoe seated alongside Yuesheng Zhang during the second of the Sceptre Sessions during the Tattersalls December Mare Sale Tuesday in Newmarket. The 2-year-old filly, trained by Jim Bolger for owner/breeder Ennistown Stud, was a maiden winner second time out at Naas and belied rough odds to be runner-up in the G3 Meld S. and the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac in September and October, respectively. The blaze-faced chestnut is a daughter of Dance Troupe (GB) (Rainbow Quest), whose 10 winners from as many to race also includes Group 3-placed Jellicle Ball (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and listed-placed Aquilla (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}). From his first crop, Saxon Warrior was represented by GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf hero Victoria Road (Ire).
