Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic
WELCOME to our preview of the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale. This story and those on the following pages give a glimpse of some of the 522 lots catalogued for the Sydney auction on January 24-24 - a sale noted for its value and for the many high class winners it has already produced. While VINERY, DARLEY, ARROWFIELD and COOLMORE might not be offering any yearlings, the collective presence of these major studs is certainly felt through yearlings by their stallions. There are progeny of Bel Danoro, Benicio, Dubleo, Excites, More Than Ready, Mossman and Testa Rossa from Vinery; while Ad Valorem, Canny Lad, Carnegie, Commands, Domesday, Dubai Destination, Elusive Quality, Exceed and Excel, Gonski, Grandera, Lonhro, Nadeem, Quest for Fame, Reset, Strategic, and Tobougg are there for Darley; Charge Forward, Danzero, Hussonet, Not a Single Doubt, Snitzel and Starcraft fly the flag for Arrowfield's stallion roster; and Antonius Pius, Aussie Rules, Choisir, Dehere, Fastnet Rock, Fusaichi Pegasus, Holy Roman Emperor, Johannesburg, Lion Heart, Oratorio, Rock of Gibraltar and Royal Academy, all members of the Coolmore stallion roster, contribute a high percentage of the lots on offer. Emirates Park Stud EMIRATES Park Stud too, is well represented with the NSW Murrurundi property offering a draft of 19 by Al Maher, four by Secret Savings, two by Al Samer, and one each by Bel Esprit, Dash for Cash, and Fusaichi Pegasus, while their Victorian Diggers Rest property has five catalogued, all by Al Samer. An interesting Al Maher is the filly (Lot 432) from a sister to Dash for Cash. This is a filly that fits the bill of being a genuine dual-purpose proposition. Another filly with similar appeal is the Al Samer-Noor El Ain (Lot 192), a first foal. Her dam is from Salameh, a half sister to Al Maher from the immediate family of Redoute's Choice, Manhattan Rain, Hurricane Sky and Umatilla, while Al Samer is himself by Redoute's Choice. An Al Samer colt from the stakes-placed Beautiful Mimzar (Lot 445) is a half-brother to the well- performed Mimzical. Lot 30, a colt by Al Maher from the Secret Savings mare Dubai Ruby, is from the family of a number of high profile sires in Machiavellian, Exit to Nowhere and Orpen, while his third dam, Raise the Standard, is a half-sister to the great Northern Dancer, making him a member of a very strong sire-producing maternal family. From Emirates in Victoria, comes a colt by Al Samer from Miss Hennessey (Lot 168). He is from the famed Eight Carat family (Eight Carat is his fourth dam). Lot 405, an Al Samer colt from Al Safa, has as his fourth dam Pure of Heart, the dam of Lion Hunter, while closer up, he is related to Gr.2 winner Faith Hill (AJC Emancipation Stakes). A filly by Al Samer, Lot 425, is from a half-sister (by Anabaa) to the multiple Gr.1- winning stayer County Tyrone, while another filly (Lot 458), also by Al Samer, is from a half-sister to Desert Eagle (Grand Delight (HK)). Baerami Thoroughbreds PAUL HIGGINS' Baerami Thoroughbreds Denman has a draft comprising seven by California Dane and one by Danasinga. The lone Danasinga in the Baerami draft (Lot 92) is a colt from the Royal Academy mare Happened in Paris, who is a half-sister to the Gr.2 January 2010 6 HIGH PROFILE STALLIONS SYDNEY CLASSIC YEARLING SALE by Warren Wruck a drawcard for buyers seeking value
