Potent buying duo secure three lots
A close relation of two multiple Group 1 winners is on her way to Sydney after champion trainer Chris Waller and Guy Mulcaster went to $220,000 to secure Waikato Stud’s daughter of Ocean Park on Day 2 at Karaka.
Lot 345 is a half-sister to the three-time top-flight winner The Bostonian and they are out of the Keeper mare Keepa Cheval, a half-sister to the 10-time elite level winner Mufhasa.
Waller and Mulcaster also secured a Savabeel filly and a Tivaci colt out of the Matamata nursery’s consignment, with the former offered as Lot 276 and snapped up for $140,000.
Her dam is the O’Reilly mare Glee and she is a sister to the dam of the Matamata farm’s multiple Group 1 winner Daffodil. The G1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas winner and G1 Ellerslie Sires’ Produce S. winner Good Faith also feature on the pedigree page.
Lot 335, a son of Tivaci sold for $135,000 and he is out of the Savabeel mare Jammu and the family of the G1 Avondale Cup winner Sharvasti.
Her half-sisters Shastri and Bhandara were also Group 3 winners, while the G1 Australian Derby placegetter Eric The Eel adds to the roll of honour.
Meanwhile, a son of the late Sacred Falls was the subject of plenty of interest and Lot 282 was eventually knocked down to Upper Bloodstock and Enigma Farm for $150,000.
He is a son of Goodsav, a Savabeel mare who won three times and finished runner-up in the G3 Cuddle S. and the Listed Inglewood S.
“Sadly, we have the final representation of Sacred Falls. It’s far too early to be selling his last yearlings, but we’ve been proud to see him leave some topliners in the last couple of seasons, and we’re hoping for more from this final crop,” Mark Chittick said.
This colt’s second dam is a half-sister to former champion Singapore 2 and 3-year-old Onceuponatime, whose dam Scarlet Runner won the G2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic.
