$220,000 Zoustar Filly Shines at Inglis Weanling Sale
The highest priced filly sold during the first session of the Inglis Australian Weanling Sale was a lovely Zoustar filly from Lady Cartier that made $220,000 for Tyreel Stud.
Bought by Kiwi based Kaha Nui Farm, the filly is the fourth foal of a winning Fastnet Rock half-sister to stakes-winner Rustic Steel and her third dam is blue hen Shantha’s Choice, the dam of Group[ I winners Redoute’s Choice, Platinum Scissors and Manhattan Rain.
Tyreel’s Linda Monds described the result as “very pleasing’’.
“She did have a reserve on her, but she did exceed our expectations and I must say the final price was quite well above the reserve,’’ Monds said.
“She’s been strong and robust from the time she hit the ground, she’s a very powerful filly. She is an out-and-out racehorse, she just has that power and strength and I’ve no doubt she’ll reach success on the track.”
Kaha Nui Farm’s Nick White added: “She is a lovely filly and I think she’ll come up really well for whichever yearling sale she goes to. She has got a good pedigree.
“The stallion’s got a bit of power behind him so hopefully there’ll be people interested come [next year].
“She is a big, strong filly, she walks well, she is typical of the really nice Zoustar’s.”
