TOURNY IN FOAL TO FRANKEL MAKES 400,000GNS
Taken from the Thoroughbred Daily News, 5th December 2017:
John McCormack signed for the Gr.3 Prix de Cabourg winner Tourny (lot 1548) for 400,000gns yesterday on day one of Tattersalls December Mare Sale.
The four-year-old is in foal for her first cover to FRANKEL, and she heads to Japan, where that sire had his first Gr.1 winner in Soul Stirring, having been bought by Taihei Stud.
"She's carrying a colt by Frankel, who seems to be doing great," McCormack said. "She's a pretty mare and was a good racemare. She's young, she has performance and was well mated and within a reasonable price level. She has a later service so she can still go to Japan and foal there, but she was a pretty mare."
In addition to her Gr.3 win, Tourney was third in the Gr.1 Prix Morny, and is a full-sister to the listed winner Make It Reel.
