Karaka Moment: Sale of Marquise filly

 
9 Feb 2012


There was always going to be enormous interest in Lot 314, the filly by Stravinsky from Marquise simply had it all.

 

She is a half-sister to the Group One winner Shower of Roses; her second dam is none other than Eight Carat; she’s by a world-class sire and to top it all off, like the majority of the family, she’s a stunning type.

 

Prominent New Zealand agent Michael Wallace recognised her outstanding credentials and went to $675,000 to secure the filly for an undisclosed client.
