Inglis Weanling Sale 2: Colm Santry Buys Sale Topper

Monday, 16th April 2007

Well known industry identity Colm Santry purchased the day's top lot for $320,000, a filly foal by Coolmore Stud stallion Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way). Lot 208, the filly is out of stakes-placed Langfuhr mare Shalang, a half-sister to Gr1 MRC One Thousand Guineas winner Shame. Grandam Kilijaro won Gr1 races in the US, France & Ireland. "She's a lovely filly, the best in the sale. There's so much upside with her," Santry pointed out. "The yearling full sister sold for $550,000 last week, the mare is going back to Encosta de Lago this year, she's in foal to Dehere and I really think this filly will make into an outstanding Easter yearling." The weanling section continues from 10.30am today (Lots 231-287) and is followed by the first of five broodmare sessions.
