NO Nay Never keeps hitting the right notes, and among the breeders thankful for the racecourse success of his offspring is Denis Brosnan. He sold a son of the Zafonic mare Winning Sequence for M.V. Magnier for 900,000gns after the Coolmore man outbid Anthony Stroud.

A half-brother to three winners and to the dam of last year’s smart French juvenile Barbill, the sale of the colt was bittersweet for Brosnan who lost the dam this spring after she foaled a colt by Profitable. Brosnan was full of praise for the colt and also for the stud’s general manager, Joe Hartigan.
