$1.1M For Coolmore Catchy Half-Sister

Thursday, 11th April 2019

Coolmore Stud-consigned Lot 398 sold for $1.1 million to Orbis Bloodstock on the final day of 2019’s Inglis Easter Sale renewal. By 2YO Triple Crown winner Pierro, the filly is a half-sister to Dorrington Park’s multiple Gr1-performed filly Catchy whose career highlight was her Gr1 Blue Diamond victory. The dam of 5 foals (all winners and all by Fastnet Rock), Cats Whisker was herself placed in the Gr1 One Thousand Guineas in a very good career that also netted her three individual Group race wins. The mating with Pierro, while not excluding the capacity to be a sprinter, conjures up visions of a filly that could be equally effective at a mile or beyond.
