Dozen Encosta De Lago foals at Inglis Sale

The 2010 Inglis Australian Weanling Sale has 398 entries for the Newmarket auction that starts on Wednesday.

Australia’s Champion Sire Encosta De Lago has 12 entered with his highlight being a half sister to Group 1 winner Aqua D’Amore, one of five siblings to a Group 1 winner in the catalogue.

Another highlight is the only weanling being offered for sale this year by Redoute’s Choice, a bay colt from the Quest For Fame mare Back Pass, making him a full-brother to the stakes winning Sharkbite.

Fellow Champion Sires Flying Spur (6) and Zabeel (1) also have weanlings for sale, along with topliners like More Than Ready (2), Fastnet Rock (12), Lonhro (8), Commands (7), Choisir (6), Stratum (4) and Shamardal (4).

First crop stallions include Bernardini, Casino Prince, Dylan Thomas, Haradasun, Hard Spun and Street Sense.

Encosta de Lago’s daughter Apercu will be represented by her first foal, a Fastnet Rock colt who is one of eight weanlings out of a Group 1 winning dam.
