Inglis Easter Day 1: $800,000 Encosta De Lago-High Heels Colt
With crack weight-for-age horse and 4-time Gr1 winner Desert War (Desert King-High Heels, by Canny Lad) having come back in such top order this autumn, competition was always going to be fierce for his Encosta de Lago half-brother. High profile bloodstock agent James Bester was forced to go to $800,000 to secure the colt, Lot 234, which was consigned by Widden Stud. Bester will send his 1st runner out, as a self-proclaimed hobby trainer, at Randwick today.
