The seventh online sale held by bloodstockauction.com is the company's biggest yet with a record number of 56 horses to go under the virtual hammer this evening from 7pm. And there is quality right from the start with the opening lot being a Gr3-winning mare in foal to Victoria's most popular stallion, Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente. Senorita Dame, winner of the Gr3 Desert Gold Stakes and the Listed Canterbury Belle Stakes, is a daughter of Senor Pete and the Gr3 mare Snadame. Lot 2 also hails from a good family, with The Launder having on her pedigree page the great Black Caviar. A mare with a real look of her globe-trotting multiple Gr1 winning sire Starcraft, Hoshi is an unraced broodmare prospect, a daughter of the stakes placed Dai Ichi whose grand-dam is Caulfield Cup winner Imposera. Monaco Princess , who has a colt by the handsome Mulaazem at foot, is also on offer and she is a half-sister to dual Cox Plate winner Fields Of Omagh. This is a prolific black-type family that has also produced star filly Fontein Ruby. Also being sold with a colt at foot by Mulaazem (a Gr2 winning half-brother to hot young stallion Sepoy) is Miss Thunder, a half-sister to triple Gr1 winner Northwood Plume. Other appealing broodmare prospects include the city winner Matilda Princess by the outstanding broodmare sire Snippets, the proven broodmare Zip Zapper (dam of city winner Bonzerina), sisters or half-sisters to the stakes winners Racer's Run, Winger Charger and Star Shiraz and daughters of Testa Rossa, Octagonal, Red Arrow, Mister C, Fusaichi Pegasus, Sequalo and Iffraaj.
