Four for JHB at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale
The strength and vibrancy of the Australian market was again to the fore at the 2019 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale and James Harron Bloodstock was again active, purchasing four choice lots.
Our first purchase was lot 49, the Snitzel colt out of Ichihara, purchased for $2,800,000 from George Altomonte’s Corumbene Stud. This sensational colt is out of Group 2 Magic Night Stakes winner Ichihara, who is herself a full sister to the dam of outstanding sprinter Menari, another son of Snitzel. Physically this colt was as good as we have seen at the Australian yearling sales for several years, and we cannot wait to see what he can do in the green and gold silks with Peter and Paul Snowden.
Lot 130, the Not A Single Doubt filly out of Miss Stellabelle purchased for $375,000 from Segenhoe Stud. This powerful filly is the third foal of the tough, high-class mare Miss Stellabelle, a Melbourne Group 3 winner and eleven times a stakes winner or stakes placed. She enters the stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.
The I Am Invincible colt out of Mrs Boxall was our next purchase, secured for $1,200,000 from Torryburn Stud. He is out of the Fastnet Rock mare Mrs Boxall, a three-quarter sister to stakes winner Miss Gai Flyer and from the family of outstanding 2YO Champion Ha Ha, and he too will race in the green and gold silks of the JHB colt group under the care of Peter and Paul Snowden.
Our final purchase was lot 175, the Snitzel colt out of Peron, purchased for $900,000 from Segenhoe Stud, another to be trained by Peter and Paul Snowden. He is the second foal of Peron, a Listed winner and Group 2 placed daughter of Husson, and a half-sister to a pair of stakes winners in the shape of Gai’s Choice and Atmospherical. This is the further family of Group 1 winning sprinter Eagle Falls.
