Inglis Melb Yearlings Day-1: $380k Exceed And Excel Colt
Leading Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse paid equal top price of $380,000 for a colt by boom Darley 1st-Season sire Exceed And Excel (the 4th foal out of winning 11-year-old Sir Laurence mare Oubladee) during yesterday's opening session of the 4-day Inglis Premier Yearling Sale at Oaklands Junction in Melbourne. Waterhouse described the colt (consigned by Monterey Stud as agent) as "a truly lovely colt: we thought he was the jewel of the sale. We liked him so much he has been bought on spec, so anyone wanting to join the winning team at Tulloch Lodge should contact the office." His dam Oubladee (a half-sister to dual Gr2-winning & dual Gr1-placed Zeya) has 2 foals to race & both are dual-winners.
