That one's stablemate lined up inside, Divino (Good Magic), brought $400,000 as a yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Yearling Sale. His second dam, a GI Ashland S. winner, first brought $6,000,000 from Hill 'n' Dale at KEENOV in 2006 and then sold again to John Sikura for a further $3,100,000 at Fasig-Tipton's Fall Mixed Sale two years later. Divino is out of a half to GI Darley Debutante S. winner Mi Sueno (Pulpit) and from the family of $2,000,000 2-year-old and GI Ballerina S. heroine Dubai Escapade (Awesome Again). TJCIS PPS
