Choisir mare Shake Shake Shake topped Day 1 of the Inglis Melbourne August Sale at Oaklands Junction on Thursday.
Offered by Bucklee Farm, she made $40,000 to the bid of NSW buyer VCB / G Cuddy. The mare won a Taree maiden in 12 starts and was sold in foal to Domesday.
Shake Shake Shake is a half-sister to LR Belmont Oaks winner Rock My Pago (Rock of Gibraltar). They descend from a family developed by the late Vince Yovich at WA based Evergreen Lodge.
In all, 124 horses sold on Thursday for turnover of $454,050 at a clearance rate of 83%.
The sale continues on Friday highlighted by a host of talented gallopers as part of Darley’s annual reduction.
