Inglis To Conduct Waratah Dispersal
Waratah Thoroughbreds farm in the Southern Highlands will disperse its 20 strong Australian-based broodmare band and concentrate on racing and trading in stock. Waratah, owned by businessman Paul Fudge, will continue its elite breeding operations offshore, where mares are covered to Southern Hemisphere time with an eye to selling progeny in Australia. Of the 20 mares to be sold as part of the dispersal, 11 will be offered through The Chairman's Sale (Breeding Prospects) on Thursday, 12 April at Riverside Stables, while the remaining nine mares will be offered at the Inglis Australian Weanling and Broodmare Sale from 15-17 April. Highlights include:
- Group 1-winning Bernstein mare Miss World in foal to Champion sire Fastnet Rock;
- Jemsa, a three-quarter sister to Kentucky Derby winner and successful sire Street Sense in foal to Medaglia d'Oro;
- City-winning Elusive Quality mare Gamba, a half-sister to Group 1 winner Cosmic Endeavour in foal to Capitalist;
- Plus mares in foal to Sebring, More Than Ready, Hinchinbrook, Star Witness, Choisir, Starspangledbanner and Redoute's Choice.
Inglis National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy commented: "This group of mares have been mated to the very best sires in the world over the past few years and several of them have yearlings and 2YOs about to hit the racetrack by stallions like Deep Impact, Fastnet Rock, I Am Invincible and Exceed and Excel and many are from some of the world's most active female families," he said. "This unreserved dispersal sale offers breeders from around the world access to a high-class group of mares in the prime of their breeding lives with some amazing upside to come."
