NZB Yearlings Day-2: NZ$625k Darci Brahma Filly
NSW bloodstock agent Rick Connolly (acting for Patinack Farm) paid NZ$625,000 for a filly by The Oaks Stud's 5-time Gr1-winning & 5-time Gr1-placed freshman stallion Darci Brahma (the 12th foal out of winning 19-year-old Bletchencore mare Miss Distinction) consigned by Hallmark Stud. Connolly commented: “Her page is full of outstanding horses in their own right & she ticked all the boxes.” The filly’s dam Miss Distinction is a half-sister to Mia Malagra (dam of stakes-winner Hampton’s Choice); she has previously produced both NZ multiple Gr1-winner & multiple Gr1-placed Gee I Jane, plus NZ Gr3-winner Miss Jessie Jay (dam of both NZ multiple Gr1-winner Katie Lee & NZ Gr1-winner Banchee).
