Inglis Broodmares Day-2: $600k Bhandara
New Zealand bloodstock agent Dean Hawthorne paid $600,000 for dual Gr3-winning 10-year-old mare Bhandara (Zabeel-Vedodara, by Kresler) consigned by Widden Stud as agent & sold in-foal to last year's Australian Champion 2nd-Season Sire & multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock. Bhandara (a half-sister to both NZ Gr1-winner Sharvasti & NZ Gr3-winning & Gr1-placed Shastri) won both NZ's Gr King's Plate & Gr3 Cuddle Stakes, plus Australia's Listed Wiggle Quality (1400m) at Warwick Farm, as well as finishing 3rd in NZ's Gr3 Wellington Stakes.
