A $65,000 High Chaparral colt topped the Brisbane Bloodstock yearling sale in Toowoomba on Sunday.
A total of 70 lots changed hands at an average of $10,414. The numbers were diminished by the withdrawal of 20 yearlings catalogued by Goodwood Park.
The sale topper was consigned by Thoroughbred International and purchased by Newcastle trainer Anthony Honess. He is the first foal of Mongolia (Danehill Dancer), a half-sister to USA Group 1 winner Consolidator who shuttled to Darley Victoria in 2006 and 2007.
Second on the leader-board was a $52,000 Northern Regent colt out of Barathea mare Apparel. He’s a half-brother to the stakes performers Georgette Silk (Flying Spur) and Barsha (Redoute’s Choice).
