Inglis Premier Day-1: $450,000 Northern Meteor Colt

Monday, 3rd March 2014

A colt by ill-fated Widden Stud sire Northern Meteor toped the opening day (and equalled last year's top price) when fetching $450,000 to the bid of Sun Kingdom Pty Ltd / Gai Waterhouse Racing / James Harron Bloodstock. He is out of multiple Gr2 winner Conquistar. Meanwhile, Widden's freshman yearling sire Star Witness hit the limelight when his son from well related Lonhro mare Crystal Whip made $400,000 late in proceedings. Offered by Ascot Farm NZ as Lot 133 the striking chestnut had plenty of admirers, with Hoss Heinrich outbidding the Penang Turf Club to secure the youngster.
