Caviar Half-Brother Tabled For Easter
In major sales news, Inglis has confirmed that the yearling colt by Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice from dual Gr1 producing mare Helsinge will be offered by Ric Jamieson's Gilgai Farm at next year's Inglis Easter Yearling Sale (9-11 April). Given the fireworks at last year's Easter Sale where Helsinge's 4th foal (now named Pippa) sold to BC3 Thoroughbreds for a hefty $2.6 million, this offering is sure to attract headlines leading into and during the sale. Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster enthused: "Being a half-brother to a Caulfield Guineas winner and by a champion Caulfield Guineas winner makes next year's offering an outstanding prospect, but you then add Black Caviar to the equation and you have the most anticipated colt in Australia's thoroughbred auction history."
