Daughters of Kodiac and Mehmas light up Fasig-Tipton
Both Kodiac and Mehmas shone brightly at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale in Kentucky on Sunday evening as their accomplished daughters Campanelle and Going Global each commanded seven figures.
Tally-Ho-bred Campanelle is set to join the Coolmore broodmare band after selling for $5 million to MV Magnier. One of Kodiac’s best performers, she was beautifully handled by Wesley Ward on behalf of Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet Stables to win the Group 1 Prix Morning and Commonwealth Cup. She also captured the Queen Mary Stakes.
“She was a very nice yearling,“ said Magnier. “Her breeder has always liked her, even when she was a foal and a yearling. She is a nice filly. She is very fast. She has done great for Barbara Banke and we look forward to breeding her.
“We might breed her here and then bring her home [to Ireland]. We have a couple of ideas in mind. We could breed her to Justify or bring her back to No Nay Never. There are plenty of options.“
Mehmas filly Going Global, meanwhile, was knocked down to the BBA Ireland for $2.5 million. The durable mare came into the sale in great form having captured back-to-back renewals of the Grade 2 Goldikova Stakes. In all, the Nicky Hartery-bred mare won ten races, including the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks, for nearly $1.2 million in earnings.
