Inglis Sydney Day-1: $160k Tale Of The Cat Colt
Victoria's Peter Ford Thoroughbreds paid the Day-1 top price of $160,000 for a colt by Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat (the 6th foal out of winning Spectacular Spy mare Princess Zakynthos) during the opening session of the 3-day Inglis Classic Yearling Sale at Newmarket in Sydney. The colt (consigned by Scone-based Holbrook Thoroughbreds) is a-half brother to multiple stakes-placed Zakynthos Star & Ford commented: "The colt is a tremendous type & I'm very pleased to be taking this yearling back to Victoria. He's really well put together & appears to be an early type &, therefore, don't be surprised to see us back here for the 2008 Inglis Classic race!" The colt's dam Princess Zakynthos is a half-sister to 6-time-winner & 4-times stakes-placed Emigrant.
