New Record for Inglis Scone Yearling Sale

Monday, 6th July 2020

Easter Round Two was immediately followed on Sunday by a successful renewal of the Scone Yearling Sale, in which six yearlings equalled or bettered the 2019 top price of $60,000. Lot 223, a Toronado x Settecento colt from Jazcom Thoroughbreds, set a new Scone record, selling to Hawkes Racing for $180,000. The colt was a successful pinhook, with Jazcom purchasing him as a weanling from last year’s Great Southern Sale for just $10,000. “I’d made it quite clear to people close to us that I thought he could top the sale, I thought he’d bring $60,000 but wouldn’t be surprised if he bought $100,000 so to get that great result, it really pays off for what Meagan and I do with the pinhooking investment,’’ Jazcom’s Colin Branthwaite said.
