Sir Dragonet Sold, Will Race Down Under

Sir Dragonet |

G3 Chester Vase S. winner and G1SP Sir Dragonet (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) has been purchased by trainer Ciaron Maher and owner Ozzie Kheir and will race Down Under, reported on Tuesday. The 4-year-old, who was fifth in the G1 Epsom Derby and fourth in the G1 St Leger at three, will enter quarantine in September and is a potential G1 Cox Plate starter.

Resuming in March, the former Coolmore partners' runner was second in the Listed Devoy S. at Naas, second again in the Listed Wolferton S. at Royal Ascot on June 18 and filled that position once more in the G3 Alleged S. at The Curragh on June 27. Stepped back up to Group 1 level in the Tattersalls Gold Cup there on July 26, the son of the GSP Sparrow (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}) played the bridesmaid once more to stablemate Magical (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). A price for the grandson of GSW and G1 Epsom Oaks runner-up All Too Beautiful (Ire) (Sadler's Wells), herself a full-sister to champion runner and champion sire Galileo (Ire), was not disclosed.

“He's got a massive pedigree,” said Ciaron Maher Racing Bloodstock Manager Will Bourne to “He's from the family of Galileo (Ire) and is highly rated. It's a quality purchase and we couldn't be more excited.”
