WS’s colt by resident champion sire Pins realised $A160,000 on the opening day of the Sydney Easter Yearling Sale. Purchased by New South Wales interests, he is a son of the Gold Brose mare Zamfir who won five races and was stakes placed in the Opunake Cup.

She finished runner-up in the Gr 1 Stradbroke Handicap and at stud also produced eight winners, including Society Beau (Gr 2 Japan-NZ International Trophy).
As agent, William Inglis purchased the well-related Pins colt out of the multiple winner Fiaba for $A135,000. From the family of two-time Gr 1 winner Glamour Puss, she is a half-sister to the Gr 3 Lion Red Plate winner Crepe De Chine, the former champion Singapore spirnter Arenti and the stakes winner Glam Slam.
