Broodmare's breeding status:

In foal:Yes
Covering sire: No Nay Never (USA) 2011
Date of last service:11 December 2017
Selling with a foal at foot:No

My Tusker was a brilliant racemare winning 6 races including 3 x Group 2 races and a second placing in a Group 1.

Her second dam was the absolute Champion of her time in HORLICKS who of course was the dam of Melbourne Cup winner BREW.

My Tusker is a beautiful mare to be around, has great conformation, sound legs and feet and a marvellous temperament.

She is already the dam of 2 City Winners and has 2 x Fastnet Rocks and a Pierro to come through for you. Her last 2 yearlings have averaged $212,500 and have gone to the McEvoy & Cummins yards so will be given every chance.

But the most exciting thing about My Tusker is that she is due to foal in November to Champion first Season Sire in Europe No Nay Never who to date has had 27 individual 2yo winners in his first crop with 6 Strakes Winners including a Group 1 Winner, with his first yearlings due to be sold in Australia in 2019.

No Nay Never stands at Coolmore where his is fully booked this season . His 2019 European fee has just been announced at 100,000 Euros so this represents a unique opportunity to jump the queue and get in ahead with a weanling ready for next years foal sales or a yearling for the season after.

Inspection will delight.
