HARD TO SPLIT THESE TWO FILLIES
Feb 22, 2017
I went to this years Inglis Classic Sale looking to buy a couple of early running fillies which would be up and racing as 2yo's.
I had a budget of $150k and was ecstatic to come home with two well bred athletic young fillies for a combined spend of less than $120k.
Both fillies are by young emerging sires. However, I have principally bought them on type. They are well put together girls much in the same mould as Double Dee and promising 2yo filly Smooth Celebration both of whom I bought at this Sale.
I have nominated both girls for the Inglis Race Series and both will be given every chance to qualify for next years Inglis Classic Race worth $250,000. We took Smooth Celebration up for that race this year and she came down with a temperature 2 days before the race which was a shame as she would have been a huge chance in moderate field. This race is only open to horses purchased from the Classic Sale which really limits the field.
YOUR SONG x MOCKS FILLY
The YOUR SONG x MOCKS filly was a bargain buy at $50,000. She is by an exciting young stallion (YOUR SONG) who has already had three winners from his first crop (he is leading the 1st Season Sire in Australia). Her mother is a young Exceed and Excel mare and she hails from a really good international family which includes champion European galloper FANTASTIC LIGHT.
Interestingly, she is inbred 3 x 3 to DANEHILL which is a cross that is starting to gain momentum in the breeding world. The double Danehill cross has a stakes double over the weekend with DUCIMUS ((2c Snitzel x Beauty World, by Danehill Dancer) winning the Talindert Stakes at Flemington. The 3 x 3 Danehill cross struck again at Tasmania on the weekend with PATENA ARENA winning the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes.
A 10% share in this filly will cost $5,585 + GST which includes purchase price, agents commission, Inglis Race Series, X-rays, Scope and Transport to Melbourne.

PER INCANTO x TINKERMIA FILLY
The second filly secured at the Classic Sale was is exciting young NZ stallion PER INCANTO who is doing a great job at stud. His yearlings sold up to $300k in New Zealand this year and everyone is starting to sit up and take notice of him. He is a stallion on the rise and this filly is a ripping sort. She is one of the strongest bodied fillies I have bought for many years and I am pretty excited by her.
This filly's family received an important pedigree update last week with the first daughter out of Tinkermia (making her a 1/2 sister to our filly) running an eye catching third on debut in New Zealand. It was a big run on debut and she looks destined for bigger and better things.
For those who don't know much about Per Incanto, the video below is a must watch. You can also read up about him on the Little Avondale Stud website - http://www.lastud.co.nz/stallions/per-incanto/abou...
