In the New Zealand auction ring, NZB as agent paid top price of NZ$175,000 for a colt by dual Australian Champion Sire Encosta de Lago (the 7th foal out of stakes-winning & Gr3-placed 18-year-old Paris Opera mare Miss Opera) during the middle session at the 3-day NZB National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Karaka in Auckland. The colt (consigned by his breeder Monovale Farm) is a half-brother to 6-time Gr1-winner & 9-times Gr1-placed Kiwi galloper Sir Slick.
