Positive finish to Inglis Premier

Positive finish to Inglis Premier28 Feb 2022

A final crop representative of Tavistock started a positive day of results when our final representatives went through the ring at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

He caught the eye of respected bloodstock agent John Foote and he went to A$240,000 at Oaklands to secure Lot 300.

The colt is a son of the Fastnet Rock mare Vanity Queen, who was successful in England as a two-year-old. She is a half-sister to the stakes winners El Drama and Volume, also Group 1-placed in the English and Irish Oaks.

Group 1-winning trainer Mark Kavanagh secured both Lot 347, a daughter of Almanzor for A$250,000, and Lot 363, a Tavistock filly for A$110,000.

The Almanzor youngster is a half-sister to Saturday's G1 Randwick Guineas contender War Eternal with their dam the Fastnet Rock mare Aleria.

Aleria is out of multiple stakes winner Impressive Eagle and the family of the G1 Queensland Derby winner Eagle Way.

The daughter of Tavistock is out of the Group 3 placegetter Aotearower, whose dam Kaatoon won the G2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic.

Successful Warwick Farm horseman Joseph Pride outlaid A$100,000 for Lot 484, our son of Almanzor out of the High Chaparral mare Durack.

Warrnambool-based conditioner Symon Wilde liked the look of our U S Navy Flag colt and duly secured him for A$90,000.

He is out of the O’Reilly mare Eliza Blue, who won twice and finished runner-up in the G1 Queensland Oaks, and is a sister to the G3 Marton Metric Mile winner Old Belvedere.

Trilogy Racing, of New South Wales, may have sneaked a bargain when they paid A$40,000 for Lot 466. The Almanzor filly is a half-sister to a pair of multiple winners with their dam the G3 Nivison Stakes winner Diamond Earth.

From the family of the G2 Edward Manifold Stakes winner and multiple Group 1 placegetter Bring Me Roses.
