NEWS: Brazen Beau filly makes $220,000 on day two of Classic sale

Fellow Darley stallions Hallowed Crown and Shooting To Win also in strong demand
Lot 293: Filly by Brazen Beau x Mean Louise

Darley’s proven young stallion Brazen Beau stepped up to the mark on day two of the Inglis Classic yearling sale in Sydney when his filly out of a three-quarter sister to the four-time G1 winner Streama made $220,000.

The filly from the Stratum mare Mean Louise was prepared and sold by Queensland based KBL Thoroughbreds and knocked down to Brisbane trainer Kelly Schweida.

One of the most successful stallions at recent Australian sales, Brazen Beau has only five yearlings on offer here, but has 22 catalogued at next month’s Inglis Premier in Melbourne, a sale he topped in 2019.

With the average price sitting at $89,270 after the first two sessions, the Darley stallions have been responsible for a string of six-figure sales with Brazen Beau’s fellow second-crop sires Hallowed Crown and Shooting To Win also producing strong results.

Following the sale in the opening-session of a Hallowed Crown colt from Lycra Lass for $155,000, the same stallion bettered that result when Lot 514, his filly from the Stakes-winning Strategic Maneuver mare Tempt Me Not, made $165,000.

Offered by Gooree Stud, the filly went to the bid of Sydney trainer John O’Shea. Hallowed Crown has sired 28 individual winners, half of them having won in the first month of 2020.

Shooting To Win, who sits among the top five among Australian second-season sires also had a strong day two, capped by his colt from the unraced Stratum mare Medusa who made $180,000.

Offered by Torryburn Stud as Lot 295, the colt is a half-brother to the city winners San Francisco and Cotton Fields and is from the family of the UK Stakes winner and sire, True Hero.

Also maintaining a place among the most sought-after stallions of the sale, Epaulette produced his second six-figure yearling in as many days, a colt from the Zeditave mare Pizitave.

A half-brother to three winners, the colt offered by Rheinwood Pastoral went to Thoroughbred Union Queensland for $100,000.

On day one an Epaulette filly from the Octagonal mare Clementine made $110,000.

The Classic Sale continues on Tuesday, 11 February, at Inglis’s Riverside Stables.
