Group 2 performer Sunday Rose was the most expensive of the 181 lots to change hands when the Inglis Weanling & Bloodstock Sale came to a close on Tuesday.
The Bart Cummings homebred won three races in Melbourne and Sydney and was runner-up to Melito in the 2009 STC Silver Slipper Stakes. Sunday Rose (Exceed And Excel) has been booked to Widden Stud sire Sebring.
“I’m delighted with the results achieved over the past two days of selling despite the appalling weather,” Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said. “That’s reflected in the clearance rate of 89% for both our weanling and bloodstock sessions, with over $6 million traded.”
Buyers also took a liking to breeding stock offered by former Eliza Park owner Lee Fleming. His Unreserved Dispersal was headed by Song Of The Sun at $155,000. She is a half-sister to Black Caviar’s second dam Song Of The Son and was sold in foal to Snitzel to Paul Willets.
Well related four-year-old Redoute’s Choice mare Jaipur Princess topped the race fillies section when selling for $115,000. Group 2 winning gelding Pampelonne made $60,000 when selling to Rosemont Stud.
