Curtain falls on lucrative auction
Waikato Stud concluded a successful Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale on Monday afternoon, highlighted by the AU$230,000 realised by a regally-bred son of farm resident Savabeel.
Trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young were the successful purchasers of Lot 409 who is a three-quarter brother to Group 1-winning siblings Diademe and Embellish.
The colt is out of the Pins mare Candelabra, who had an Ocean Park filly last year, and the pedigree page also features the two-time Group 1 winner Sacred Star.
Meanwhile, a daughter of Ocean Park, Lot 304, is headed to Flemington after trainer Troy Corstens, bidding under the Malua Bloodstock banner, parted with AU$125,000 for the well-related filly.
She is out of the O’Reilly mare Virginia and she is a sister to the multiple Group 1 winner and producer Alamosa and a three-quarter sister to Sacred Capital, who won multiple black-type races in Macau.
The G1 Diamond S. winner Dal Cielo and the G1 Schweppes Oaks winner Lights Of Heaven also feature on the pedigree page.
Virginia produced a Savabeel colt last year and was then served by Super Seth.
Waikato Stud offered six yearlings through Stonehouse Thoroughbreds’ draft, selling for a total of AU$1,115,000, and an average of AU$185,830. The top Waikato Stud lot was achieved on Sunday with Lot 239, a son of Savabeel bought by John Foote Bloodstock, selling for AU$260,000.
