Background: More of the late Aga Khan's mares and fillies from his Irish and French studs were sold at the bloodstock sale at Park Paddocks, Newmarket today, and the total has now reached 142,990 guineas. There are still 15 to come tomorrow.
There was a huge crowd at the sale ring when Captain P. Harbord, of the Curragh Bloodstock Agency, bidding on behalf of the young American breeder Mr N. Butler, bought Emali for 15,000 guineas, the highest price given for one in the late Aga Khan's batch. Emali was the only mare in the catalogue certified to be in foal to Nearco, a winner of the Italian Derby and Grand Prix de Paris and one of the most successful stallions ever to stand in England.
Californian breeder Mr Rex Ellsworth, who bought 11 of the Aga Khan's mares on Monday for 35,140 guineas, was again the biggest buyer when the second batch from the studs came into the ring this afternoon. He gave 6,700 guineas for a Fair Trial mare, Leventina.
Dader, a lovely Dante mare, of the Pretty Polly family, was knocked down to Mr Arped Plesch for 6,300 guineas, is one of several likely to remain in Britain.
Rainbow fetched 9,500 guineas, paid by the Anglo-Irish Agency for the eight-year-old on behalf of Mr P. O'Neill.
Among the large and eager crowd at the sales were Aly Khan, The Earl of Rosebery, Mr Boyd Rochford (the Queen's trainer), the Countess of Derry, Mr Alec Head, the Aga's and Aly's trainer, Mr Vincent O'Brien an Irish trainer, Hon. Guy de Rothschild, from France.
