Starstruck catalogued for Scone Sale

The Inglis Scone Broodmare Sale on Friday has been boosted by an additional 24 supplementary entries.

The supplementary section includes mares by outstanding stallions like Redoute’s Choice, Fastnet Rock, Stratum, Shamardal and Red Ransom, in addition to proven broodmare sires like Canny Lad, Snippets and Quest For Fame.

Covering stallions across the entire catalogue include Al Maher, Mossman, Not A Single Doubt, Tale Of The Cat, Nadeem and Ad Valorem, in addition to exciting young prospects All American, Duke Of Marmalade, Excellent Art, Henrythenavigator, I Am Invincible, Nicconi, Northern Meteor, Myboycharlie, Time Thief and Trotamondo.

Inglis Bloodstock Director Jonathan D’Arcy reiterated what a great opportunity this sale represents to secure broodmares on the eve of the new breeding season.  “We have catalogued a number of very well-bred fillies and mares off the track that would suit the exciting first season sires that are standing in the Hunter Valley this season,” D’Arcy said.

“While it is a buyer’s market at present, shrewd breeders will be well rewarded when they go to sell the progeny of these young mares as weanlings and yearlings.”

Champion Australian Mare Starstruck (Haulpak) has been catalogued by Coolmore Stud (as agent).  She topped the Australian Classifications 1995 and 1996 after arriving from Perth to win the G1 Australian Cup and G2 Carlyon Cup.

Now 22, Starstruck has been represented by four winners and is in foal to Excellent Art.

Her five year-old daughter Starry Eyed (Rock of Gibraltar) is also catalogued for the Scone Sale.  She won at Moonee Valley and is in foal to Henrythenavigator.

Selling begins at White Park, Scone, from 11am this Friday, August 26.
