Sacred Falls colt tops Classic draft

Waikato Stud enjoyed a 100 per cent clearance rate at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale and a top price of AU$250,000.

The Matamata farm’s consignment was presented through the Glenn Lee Thoroughbreds draft and its Sale-topper was Lot 575, a son of Sacred Falls and Do Ra Mi who was secured by Hong Kong trainer Ricky Yiu.

The colt is a half-brother to the multiple winner and G3 performer Hangar and their dam won the G2 Kewney S.

She is a half-sister to the G1 Australasian Oaks winner Marju Snip and Unique Jewellery, successful in the Listed Hong Kong Derby Trial.

Sold as lot 69, a Savabeel youngster was purchased for AU$200,000 by Warwick Farm trainer Greg Hickman and is out of the O’Reilly mare Kansas while Lot 559, a son of Tivaci went to Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott for AU$180,000.

His dam is the Savabeel mare Date Night, a winner and twice stakes-placed and a daughter of the dual G3 winner Dating.

Waikato Stud’s seven offerings sold for AU$980,000 at an average of AU$140,000 to complete a successful Sale.
