UK Tatts Yearlings Day-4: $884k Diktat Filly
Newmarket trainer James Eustace paid 340,000 guineas (A$884,000) a Diktat filly (out of Salse mare Sitara) consigned from Islanmore Stud. Dam Sitara is a half sister to Shouk (dam of this year's Gr1 English Oaks & Gr1 Irish Oaks winner Alexandrova). The filly represented a massive pin-hooking profit, having been purchased by BBA Ireland's Patrick Cooper for a mere 26,000 guineas (A$67,000) at the 2005 Tattersalls December Foal Sale.
