Colt secured by HK interests

A smart son of Savabeel has found a new home after he was initially passed in at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.

Lot 464 was part of Waikato Stud’s draft offered through Sledmere Stud’s consignment at the Riverside Stables and he was subsequently secured by Hong Kong interests for A$120,000.

The colt is the first live foal of Happily, a Pins mare who was successful at 1400 metres and is a three-quarter sister to the Listed Anniversary H. winner Glad and a half-sister to the Listed Wellesley S. winner Exuberant.

The headline act on this pedigree page is the three-time Australian Horse of the Year and unbeaten multiple Group 1 winner Black Caviar, whose brother All Too Hard won four times at the top level before a successful stud career.

A colt by Ocean Park was first through the ring on Tuesday and Lot 647 sold to the A$75,000 joint bid of Victorian trainer Nick Ryan and Express Racing.

The youngster is a half-brother to a brace of winners and their dam is the unraced O’Reilly mare Oahu.

She is a three-quarter sister to the multiple Group 1 winner and producer Alamosa and also the family of the G1 Schweppes Oaks winner Lights Of Heaven and Dal Cielo, successful in an edition of the G1 Diamond S.

Waikato Stud’s other son of Ocean Park, Lot 650, was secured for A$70,000 by the Canberra-based Joseph and Jones Racing.

He is the first foal of the Rock ‘N’ Pop mare Of Two Minds and she is a sister to the dual Group 2 winner Surely Sacred and a half-sister to the dams of the G1 Australian Oaks winner El Patroness and the G1 Queensland Oaks winner Provocative.
