By James Thomas, Commercial Correspondent
Willie Carson said a bit of bravery was needed when he paid € 600,000 for mare Galileo Phiz at Arqana in December 2017, but it’s been a few moments since the decision seemed more than a clever business.
The filly Le Harve that Phiz carried in utero was then sold to Coolmore for 825,000 gns at pound 1 in 2019, and the mare’s last yearling, a foal by Dubawi, drew a bid of 425,000 gns from Godolphin the second. Tattersalls flagship auction day on Wednesday.
After exchanging a congratulatory punch with Sheikh Mohammed, Carson said of Dubawi’s foal: “This guy had no flaws; he’s a lovely, simple horse, his nature is fantastic, and the only thing that he has is balance.I am very optimistic that he will help the mare in the future.
“Phiz is full of Wootton Bassett but she doesn’t have a foal on her feet. I was trying to be smart and sent her to Pivotal hoping to have a filly but she wasn’t full. . “

Carson, who operates from Minster Stud in Cirencester, added that he hopes the filly from Le Havre, named Martinique, will be able to add her own piece of black type to the pedigree, and revealed that her trainer Aidan O ‘ Brien had kept the filly in good company at Ballydoyle.
Carson said: “I had a word with Aidan and I said what about this Martinique, when are you going to find me a black guy? He said: ‘Willie, she’s doing really good work because she runs Snowfall! ‘”
Phiz, a 600,000gns yearling herself, was a talented racer for John Gosden and Robin Geffen, with her best effort on Racing Post Ratings when she finished second behind The Lark in Group 2 Park Hill Stakes in 2013, for which she obtained a score of 104.
She is the dam of two winners, with Martinique joined by intelligent horse Siyouni Al Madhar.

Preparations are underway at John Dance’s Manor House Stud in Middleham, and Resident Operation Coach James Horton added to the squad in the first trades of Wednesday’s session by donating 400,000 gns to the filly of Dubawi from Peace In Motion.
The mare, a daughter of Hat Trick, won Group 3 Grosser Preis der Landeshauptstadt in training in Germany with Waldemar Hickst and was sold to Bertrand Le Metayer for € 860,000 in Arqana in 2018.
The filly Dubawi, who is listed as being bred by Les Authieux, counts Peace Time as her third dam, and the same mare is also the grandmother of the foal Dubawi sold to Godolphin for 425,000gns.
“We thought she was a lovely, extended filly and a very good first foal from a very good mare with a great page,” said Horton. “John is looking to buy some horses to possibly strengthen his brood mare group and we thought she would do the job very well.”
Horton added: “It’s the most expensive of the 11 we’ve bought so far, by far. The first horses are in the yard now, so we’re up and running and we’re just trying to organize and put the systems in place. in place. We have four two year olds who came from the breezes, so hopefully we have some runners before Christmas. “
