El Segundo Full-Brother At Inglis Easter Sale
A full-brother to Gr1-winner El Segundo (Pins-Palos Verdes, by Oak Ridge) has been nominated for the 2008 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney. Trainer Colin Little paid $500,000 to secure an older El Segundo full-brother (now named El Hermano) at the Inglis Easter Sale this year. Both colts come from NZ's Ancroft Stud. Last weekend star 6YO gelding El Segundo (a NZ$140,000 yearling at the 2003 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) won the Gr2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley in Melbourne to take his record to 11 wins (also including February's Gr1 Orr Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield & January's Gr2 Carlyon Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, plus the 2006 Gr1 Underwood Stakes over 1800m & Gr2 Memsie Stakes over 1400m, as well as the 2005 Gr1 Yalumba Stakes over 2000m & Listed JRA Cup over 2040m) & 7 placings (including August's Listed Aurie's Star Handicap over 1200m & March's Gr1 Futurity Stakes over 1600m, plus 2006's Gr1 Cox Plate over 2040m & Gr1 Yalumba Stakes over 2000m) from 24 starts for $1,931,875 earnings.
