Snitzel & Dissident Fillies Top Ingis Classic Opener
The top lot from the Gold Riband Session at the Inglis Classic Sale was a Snitzel x Racing Nadine filly from Bhima (pictured), selling to Jadeskye Racing and Brad Widdup Racing for $370,000. Widdup and Jadeskye’s Damion Flower also race the filly’s sister, who is undefeated in two barrier trials. “She’s very much in the good Snitzel mould – not an overly big filly but great attitude and a great action on her - she’d been well received all week and she’s gone to a good home which always helps,” Bhima’s Mike Fleming said. The second-top lot was a Dissident x Sonnenblume filly, which Blandford Bloodstock in conjunction with Mr An from Mongolia purchased for $340,000 off Carramar Park Stud. Coincidentally, the filly’s I Am Invincible half-brother, who races as Garibaldi and is undefeated for Tony Gollan, was the second-top lot at last year’s Classic Sale, also for Carramar Park. “Sonnenblume has been a good mare to us, this sale has been a great sale for us,” Carramar’s Wayne Alchin said.
