Inglis Classic : Next Sale Stop

Tuesday, 05 February 2019 21:13

LA’s focus shifts to Sydney this week with the five-day Inglis Classic Sale commencing on Saturday at the Riverside Stables complex at Warwick Farm.

The partnership of LA and Sledmere Stud, which has been instrumental in launching Per Incanto’s successful Australian career, continues this week with the Hunter Valley farm offering three Per Incanto yearlings and a Shamexpress yearling on LA’s behalf.

There’s something pretty ironic in Lanciato’s (Per Incanto-Surreptitious by O’Reilly) full sister being catalogued as LOT 747 (pictured). Sydney racegoers have been treated to some jet airliner like finishes from the dual stakes winner and if a walk is anything to go by, his full sister could well do the same when she gets to the track.

LOT 516 is the first foal of an O’Reilly daughter of the dual stakes winning mare Eloa. Bred on the hugely successful Per Incanto/O’Reilly cross, this colt is a well grown individual who looks like he’ll run early.

As a son of Danehill from a daughter of Zabeel there was never too much doubt that Darci Brahma would be an influential broodmare stallion and the initial results look very compelling. LOT 163, the first foal of seven win Darci Brahma mare Brah Spring by Per Incanto is closely related to the stakes winning Per Incanto gelding Magnum.   

LA has always targeted Inglis Classic with a well made type and a great example is LOT 125. The third foal of a mare whose first foal is already a dual Hong Kong winner, the Shamexpress colt has understandably been the subject of a lot of comment during inspections at Riverside this week.
