Metonymy tops Day 4 at Inglis Great Southern Sale

Hotel Grand filly Metonymy topped the fourth and final session of trade at the Inglis Great Southern Sale at Oaklands on Friday.

Metonymy won at Moonee Valley as an early-season two year-old and she was also fourth home in Sepoy’s G1 Blue Diamond Stakes.  She was purchased for $80,000 by Steve Brem who was the busiest individual buyer from the bloodstock section of the Sale.  He bought five fillies and mares for a total spend of $277,500 over the last two days.

Victorian based Noor Elaine Farm picked up the second highest priced filly on the final day going to $42,000 for last-start Caulfield winner Rock Of Ages.  The four-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock was purchased from Contract Racing’s draft.

The Great Southern Sale saw 600 lots change hands at a 79% clearance rate for total sale receipts of $4.12 million.
