Agent Sticks to Tried and True

The Per Incanto filly from Cyd Charisse was LA’s highlight amongst an offering of three on the final day of Book 2 on Friday.

Having signed for Madam Hass and Hasstobegood, Robert Dawe knows more than a thing or two about buying good Per Incanto fillies at Karaka and the Auckland based agent played the waiting game this year, purchasing the Cyd Charisse filly for $80k.

The striking chestnut filly was sold in partnership with Cambridge’s Richard Tong.

Per Incanto sold 14 yearlings in Book 2, averaging $47k and finishing behind only Darci Brahma (4 sold) and Iffraaj (8 sold) amongst the non-first season sires. Across Books 1 and 2, 23 Per Incanto yearlings sold at an average of $80k.

LA’s sale focus now shifts to the Inglis Sydney Classic Sale where the farm has three yearlings selling under the Sledmere banner.  

First and foremost, stockman and people whose interest in the animal translates into an innate ability to read how a horse will develop. I’ll see a foal at LA and Sam or Buzz will tell me how they expect it to develop. I’ll see it during my Karaka inspections 12 months later, and you could blow me over with a feather
