UK Doncaster: $182k Bertolini Filly
Agent Bobby O'Ryan out-bid Blandford Bloodstock's Richard Brown & paid 70,000 guineas (A$182,000) for 3YO filly Nina Blini (Bertolini-Film Buff, by Midyan) consigned by Shaun Cunningham from Manton House Stables. Nina Blini finished 3rd in last season's Queen Mary Stakes & O'Ryan told racingpost.co.uk: "She has been bought for a Galway property developer & will go back to Brian Meehan now. She'll hopefully race again, but will be covered in the spring by Acclamation." Her Darley sire Bertolini (Danzig-Aquilegia, by Alydar) shuttles to NZ's Rich Hill Thoroughbreds.
