$700k Winx Relation Sells to Gerald Ryan
A colt out of a half-sister to champion mare Winx topped today’s Sunday’s Inglis Easter Round Two sale at Riverside. On what was a unique day of selling top-level southern hemisphere yearlings in July, almost 75% of all stock offered was sold to a diverse range of buyers from around the world. Lot 95, by record-breaking stallion I Am Invincible out of the unraced Miss Atom Bomb, sold to Rosehill trainer Gerald Ryan for $700,000 as the day’s top seller. “He’s a nice horse who is by a great stallion out of a mare who was unraced but I knew what she could do (when she was trained at Rosehill by Tim Martin). She had a stack of ability and she was very fast and she is a half sister to none other than Winx, so you wouldn’t get a better page,’’ Ryan said of the Bhima Thoroughbreds-consigned colt. The colt (pictured) was offered on behalf of Peter and Terry Board, who purchased Miss Atom Bomb in 2012 as the first foal out of Vegas Showgirl.
