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.
