NZB National Mares Day-2: NZ$180k Starrystarrynight
In New Zealand, Gillovic Bloodstock (acting on behalf of an unnamed Hong Kong client) paid top price of NZ$180,000 for dual-winning & stakes-placed Irish-bred 9YO mare Starrystarrynight (Sadler's Wells-Upper Circle, by Shirley heights) during yesterday's 2nd broodmares section at the 3-day NZB National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale. Starrystarrynight (consigned by Trelawney Stud) was sold in-foal to The Oaks Stud's 5-time Gr1-winning & 5-time Gr1-placed stallion Darci Brahma. Brent Gillovic commented: "This was the mare of the sale in my books & I'm very happy to have been able to get her for an overseas client."
