Arrowfield Claims Norzita For $1.7 Million

Friday, 3rd May 2019

Australian Champion 3YO Filly Norzita, in foal to Champion Sire Snitzel, was the third-top lot at the 2019 Inglis The Chairman’s Sale, selling to Arrowfield (via Freyer Bloodstock) for $1.7 million. She was consigned by Lime Country Thoroughbreds on behalf of the Estate of the Late Dato Tan Chin Nam, who raced the filly. “It is a poignant moment. She is the last of Dato’s high-profile fillies off the track who have been sold off at auction and gone into other hands,” noted Duncan Ramage, Bloodstock & Racing Manager to the Estate of the Late Dato Tan Chin Nam. “It is satisfying, of course, to see the money that she made and I am delighted that she has gone to Arrowfield. John Messara has the choice to send her to probably Snitzel, Dundeel or The Autumn Sun, so her future is set very well.” Messara said: “The thing about her is, they don’t make many like her. She has got everything and she suits about four of our stallions, so we have a choice of horses to go to.”
