Star Witness put the sparkle into the third session at Inglis Classic with a cracking filly from Madam Nash selling for $350,000.

Consigned by Newhaven Park she was snapped up by Orbis Bloodstock and is from Madam Nash, a grand-daughter of New Zealand Horse of the Year Tidal Light.

“Fillies have sold very well at this sale overall and while I suppose I wasn’t expecting that to be the case necessarily, we’re thrilled with the level the Star Witness filly got to especially,” said Newhaven Park’s John Kelly.

“It was totally unexpected but that’s what happens at a horse sale when you get two people who really love a horse.

“She was popular and we thought she’d sell well but that was way beyond what anyone expected.”

The filly will remain in Australia and be trained by Kim Waugh.
