Inglis Weanlings Day-2: $100k Encosta De Lago Colt
In the auction ring, Hong Kong buyer Apollo Ng paid top price of $100,000 for a colt by dual Australian Champion Sire Encosta de Lago (the 10th foal out of unraced Irish-bred 17-year-old Kris mare Dathiyna) during yesterday’s 2nd session at the 4-day Inglis Great Southern Sale (2 days of weanlings followed by 2 days of mixed bloodstock) at Oaklands in Melbourne. The colt was consigned by Erinvale Thoroughbreds & his dam Dathiyna is a half-sister to Irish stakes-placed Darayna & Daftiyna (dam of German stakes-winner Golden Island). Dathiyna has 8 foals to race to date (all winners) in UK Gr3-placed Let Me Try Again & Irish stakes-placed Amsterdam.
