Inglis Broodmare & Weanling Sale Day-4: $340K For Bacchanal Woman
The four day 2015 Inglis Australian Broodmare and Weanling Sale ended yesterday with total sales exceeding $24 million on over 600 lots at a clearance rate of 80 per cent. "Vendors were rewarded by getting first crack at the weanling market and offering their fillies and mares to breeders wanting to buy at this sale so they can secure spots to the stallions that are quickly booking out at Australia's leading studs," said Inglis' National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy. "Good quality weanlings and broodmares have been well received with a lot of horses exceeding their reserves. Ending the sale with a total clearance rate of 80% for the week is a great start to the breeding stock sales season and we look forward to trading further weanlings and mares at the Great Southern Sale in June." $24 million was traded on 194 Weanlings, 432 Fillies and Mares plus two Stallion Shares across the four day sale at an 80% clearance rate. Striking grey stakes winning mare Bacchanal Woman topped Day Four of the sale when offered from the draft of Widden Stud as Lot 710. The daughter of Encosta de Lago was sold in foal to Sepoy for $340,000 to Andrew Perryman on behalf of Pan Sutong's Goldin Farms. As with all mares secured by the Angaston-based operation this sale, Bacchanal Woman will visit their resident stallion Akeed Mofeed in the coming breeding season. The day's second highest seller was Arrowfield Stud-consigned 4YO mare Brand New Choice who was knocked down to Widden Stud for $300,000. The sister to stakes-winning mare Come Hither was offered as Lot 734 and is in foal to Dawn Approach, with plans to send the mare to Widden's headlining stallion Sebring in the upcoming season. Among the other day four highlights was the Eliza Park-consigned Baltics who was carrying a three-quarter relation to Black Caviar. The half-sister to the dam of Black Caviar is in foal to Bel Esprit and was secured by the champion mare's breeder Gilgai Farm for $150,000. Arrowfield Stud finished as the leading vendor by aggregate for the sale, selling 14 Select Broodmares for $1,884,750.
