FEBRUARY SALE RECORD-SETTER
Taken from the Thoroughbred Daily News, 2nd February 2018
A new record was set for the Tattersalls February sale today (2nd February) when Classic prospect Willie John (DANSILI) (lot 379) was bought by trainer Roger Varian on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid for 1.9 million guineas.
Previously in training with William Haggas, Willie John was being offered as part of the selection of horses owned in part by Mayfair Speculators. A 325,000gns yearling in this ring at the October Sale two years ago, Willie John was a winner in his lone outing at Yarmouth on 16th October for Markus Jooste and China Horse Club.
