New Record Broodmare Price for Inglis Digital
A half-sister to multiple Gr1-placed Group winning Amarina Farm graduate Catkins, in foal to exciting Aquis-based first season sire Brave Smash, has topped Inglis Digital’s November (Early) Online Sale. Purchased by Mark Player’s International Thoroughbred Solutions Pty Ltd for $245,000 (plus GST), the sale set a record price for a broodmare on the platform. By Sepoy out of Catbird mare Salix Caprea, Kittie Kins was offered by Aquis Farm carrying an early season service to the dual G1-winning sprinter. “The mare was bought for a good Victorian client, to be a foundation mare for hopefully years to come,” Player said. “The resulting foal for Kittie Kins will be bred on a lovely cross with Brave Smash which was particularly attractive to my client, being Deep Impact over Danehill, a cross that really works.” Player added, “My client actually found Kittie Kins when scrolling through the Inglis Digital catalogue and they’re very happy to have secured her, it’s great to see operations like Aquis offering these types of mares.” Kittie Kins is also the fourth highest individual lot for Inglis Digital following Manaya ($400,000), Set Goals ($321,000) and a 25% share in Mustajeer ($320,000).
