Dundeel Filly Tops Melbourne Gold Sale

Monday, 29th April 2019

On Sunday at Oaklands Junction in Melbourne, a Dundeel filly highlighted a strong and competitive day of trade at the 2019 Inglis Melbourne Gold Yearling Sale. The filly (pictured) was offered by Jazcom Thoroughbreds as Lot 70 in the sale and was purchased by Tony Ottobre for $90,000. Ottobre was thrilled to get the filly as he saw the similarities with his star High Chaparral filly Princess Jenni. “She is very similar in type to Princess Jenni, who we obviously have a massive opinion of,” Ottobre said. “I went through the catalogue looking for Classic horses and am excited to get this filly.“When she was brought out of her box I could hear her walking out and as soon as I saw her I thought that is exactly the classic walk that a stayer possesses. “She will be trained by David Brideoake.” Colin Branthwaite of Jazcom thoroughbreds was in high spirits after the sale. “It was a really good result for a very nice filly, a classic style filly,” Branthwaite said. “A lot of people liked her, she was popular during inspections and had a good number of x-ray hits.”
