The Inglis Premier Yearling Sale is the second sale of their selling season. There are 804 lots on offer from 119 sires. A quick scan of the catalogue shows the dominance of Danehill in the Australian breeding industry. Almost 17% of the lots are inbreed to Danehill in generations 2-4. This cross can produce winners but it would be wise to go deep into the pedigree for reassurance. Both Lord Kanaloa and Into Mischief are strong representatives from overseas. I have selected two yearlings worthy of a look.
Lot 111 ( c More Than Ready – Kid Gloves)
More than Ready has been and still is a great sire. With 312 SW he is still capable of producing the best anywhere from 1000m to 2500m. He certainly not over the hill as shown by the performance of last year’s G1 Preakness Stakes winner Swiss Skydiver. Currently rated number 40 in the International Sires list, More Than Ready is matched with Kid Gloves who is a mare from Fastnet Rock that is rated number 6 on the Australian Broodmare sires list. The More than Ready x Fastnet Rock has already produces two G3 winners ( Ready Set Sail and Global Quest) and a L race winner (The Actuary).A PRI score of 95.0 indicates this colt will be in black type territory.
Lot 129 (f Zoustar – Lanzini)
Zoustar is a young sire on the way up. He is ranked 7 on the Australian sires premiership and produced 16 SW. Currently he appears to be a sire of sprinters; none of his SW progeny have won beyond 1400m. More than Ready is a good fit for him . He currently ranks third in Australian Broodmare sires list and he has 93 SW on
the dam pedigree side. The cross Zoustar x More than Ready has already produced a SW in Ranting, a G3 winner over1208m. What provides more encouragement for the future of Lot 129 is the fact that in her dam’s pedigree are two exceptional race mares.
- Valley of Georgia (G1 Underwood Stakes, G1 AJC Oaks)
- Lowan Star (G1 double AJC Oaks, Queensland Oaks)
These are two Powerful Mares for any filly to have in her pedigree and to see her the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale is the place to be.
