Commenting on the sale, David Powell, manager of Magalen Bryant’s interests, said, “Magalen Bryant’s colours have won more than 1,200 races to date (including more than 20 Group 1s, and nearly 100 Group winners in total). Many of these have been bred by her, such as the champion jumpers Blue Dragon and Laterano, and Polyponder on the flat. She also bred and sold as yearlings Group 1 winners Noblequest, Nasr El Arab, Pennekamp and Northerly Wind. A rigorous selection process, keeping only the best fillies and broodmares, has resulted in an elite broodmare band from families that have been successfully run for generations.”
