Inglis Broodmare & Weanling Day-2: $610K For Crafty Irna
The first-class Tyreel Stud dispersal was the highlight on day two of the Inglis Australian Broodmare and Weanling Sale at Newmarket in Sydney yesterday. "The first two days of the sale have been terrific. We are honoured that Dean Fleming entrusted Inglis to disperse Tyreel Stud's quality broodmare band which was highly sought after by buyers," said Inglis Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy. The Tyreel Stud unreserved dispersal of 22 mares which averaged $168,545 was a feature of the day's auction, but it was Gr3 Adrian Knox Stakes winner Crafty Irna (Starcraft-Zirna, by Deputy Governor) offered by Widden Stud that topped the day when selling for $610,000. Crafty Irna (Lot 300) was sold carrying a foal by Widden's outstanding young sire Sebring. Other mares in foal to Sebring sold for $340,000, $310,000, $260,000 and $130,000 during the Select Broodmare Session. A total of $12,890,850 was traded on 204 Select Session Broodmares on Monday at a strong clearance rate of 82 per cent. Tyreel Stud provided four of the five top lots yesterday; Crossyourheart, Mid Summer Music, Brothers Dream and San Cristobel. Crossyourheart (Lot 323) was sold to Steve Brem for $480,000 carrying a full relation to the Commands yearling filly that sold to Shadwell Australasia for $600,000 at last month's Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. Group 1 winner Mid Summer Music (Lot 338) was sold in foal to All Too Hard for $375,000 to Bruce Perry Bloodstock. Charge Forward's half-sister Brothers Dream (Lot 329) was knocked down to George Altomonte of Corumbene Stud for $370,000. The Redoute's Choice mare was carrying a positive pregnancy test to Sepoy, while Fastnet Rock mare San Cristobel (Lot 339) was also sold for $370,000.
