No Nay Never makes stakes breakthrough in southern hemisphere

Son Need I Say More collected in Group 3 company at Matamata

No Nay Never has made a flying start
1 of 1

Growing force No Nay Never claimed his first southern hemisphere stakes victory courtesy of his son Need I Say More at Matamata in New Zealand.

Coolmore's stallion, who is up to €175,000 for this covering season after producing the likes of July Cup hero Ten Sovereigns from his first two crops, shuttled to Australia in 2016 and returned last year, where he is reported to have covered 83 mares at a fee of A$44,000. This was his 21st worldwide stakes winner.

Need I Say More, a gelded juvenile, became his first Australian-bred winner when scoring at the same track at the start of the month and returned for the Group 3 Waikato Stud Slipper over six furlongs.

He showed plenty of resolution through testing conditions in the closing stages to come nicely clear of his Jamie Richards stablemate Cool Aza Beel.

Out of the Fastnet Rock mare Bo Bardi, he was a successful pinhook by Kilgravin Lodge, having been bought at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale for A$65,000 and sold for A$130,000 at Karaka Book 1.

Now running for the Te Akau syndicate, Richards anticipates upping Need I Say More in class for the Group 1 Sistema Stakes at Ellerslie next month.
