JEREMY NOSEDA has recently received an unexpected windfall after he was given charge of one of the most valuable Frankel offspring yet to be sold at auction.
The two-year-old filly, named La Figlia, is the jewel in a batch of five horses that Australian entrepreneur Paul Makin has recently moved across Newmarket from the William Haggas stable.
A daughter of 1,000 Guineas winner Finsceal Beo, La Figlia was a very hot property back in 2014 when she smashed the Irish foal record at Goffs when knocked down to Makin through agent Dermot Farrington for €1.8 million.
The sum was eclipsed earlier in October when Toulifaut sold in France for €1.9m and then a colt out of dual 1,000 Guineas winner Attraction was knocked down to Shadwell's Angus Gold for 1,600,000gns at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.
La Figlia, who joined Haggas in the spring, was in fast work before she moved from Somerville Lodge and will herself become a very valuable commodity if she can be successful on the track for Noseda, whose best horse Nemoralia was recently sold to the US.
The arrival, who is already entered in next year's Irish 1,000 Guineas, is a big boost for Noseda who has endured a quiet season by his standards with 16 winners on the board.
Makin, who recently announced that last year's Racing Post Trophy winner Marcel is to stand as a stallion at the National Stud in 2017, is best known for owning 2013 Irish Oaks winner Chicquita.
