No Nay Never (USA)/Like A Song (IRE) '17

Lot 744 - No Nay Never (USA)/Like A Song (IRE) '17

This was my favourite No Nay Never at the sale. She is a loose filly & very quick on her feet.

A record-breaking two-year-old by top sire of two-year-olds Scat Daddy, No Nay Never could have not gotten off to a better start at stud in the Northern Hemisphere finishing Champion First Crop Sire of 2018. Already the sire of a Group One winner in Europe in Ten Sovereigns, No Nay Never has six two-year-old stakes winners and 35 winners to his name from his first crop of racing age. An incredibly fast two-year-old, No Nay Never broke his maiden at Keeneland before opening his winning account in Europe taking out a Group Two race in track record time followed by the Group One Prix Morny defeating a strong field of sprinters. With some incredible statistics from his first crop of two-year-olds in the Northern Hemisphere we could not get past this fast looking daughter of the ground-breaking young sire No Nay Never.



This filly is the first foal out of the well-bred Royal Applause mare Like A Song. A daughter of the winning Danehill mare Like A Dame, Like A Song is half-sister to three winners including the two-year-old Group Three winner Ladys First. Hailing from the family of the talented star two-year-old filly in Europe in 2018 Fleeting, this filly's pedigree boasts a great combination of speed and stamina. With two-year-old stakes winners all throughout her page and by the incredibly fast son of Scat Daddy this filly is a very exciting racing prospect with plenty of upside.
