Both colts were sold by Arrowfield at the 2005 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney. Inspiration was purchased for $420,000 by Gary Moore Racing & is now trained by his brother John Moore & won the HK$750,000 (A$125,000) Nigato Plate (1000m) by 1.75-lengths in 57.6sec; Inspiration is the 2nd winner produced by La Bamba to race in HK (following in the footsteps of her 3YO Redoute's Choice son Lucky Unicorn who has won 3 of his 5 starts to date). Money Man was purchased for $280,000 by Apollo Ng also at last year's Inglis Easter Sale & is now trained by Casper Fownes.
