Alinghi Half-Brother Born At Yarraman
The Mitchell family's "celebrated producer Oceanfast has given birth to a colt" by champion Arrowfield Stud sire Redoute's Choice at Yarraman Park, reported breednet.com.au. The colt is a half-brother to multiple Gr1-winning mare Alinghi. At the 2006 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Yarraman Park sold an Encosta de Lago-Oceanfast filly (a full-sister to Alinghi) for $2.6 million (setting an Australian record for a yearling filly sold at auction); subsequently named Perfect Persuasion, she was stakes-placed as a 2YO last season. And earlier this year Yarraman sold another Encosta de Lago-Oceanfast filly for $1.4 million at the Inglis Easter sale.
