$450,000 at Premier for Sebring Filly

 In 2017, News

The equal highest priced filly sold during Monday’s session at Inglis Premier was a lovely Sebring filly from Group III winning Shamardal (USA) mare Shamalia.

Consigned by Blue Gum Farm, she was bought by Rosemont Stud for $450,000 and is the third foal of her dam, who is a half-sister to another stakes-winner in Emperor’s Way.

The striking chestnut will run in the same colours as another striking chestnut in Brooklyn Hustle, who was an unlucky fourth in the Group I MRC Oakleigh Plate.

“There’s a bit of Brooklyn Hustle about her and they’re not making any more of the Sebrings and she was, for us, the filly of the sale,” Rosemont Stud’s Anthony Mithen told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“She’s out of a Shamardal mare, she’s an out-cross filly and she’s off a farm that do a magnificent job and they continue to produce great results at Blue Gum and we were more than happy to be pretty strong on her.

“I had to be a little stronger than what I wanted to be, but you come here to buy the ones you want, rather than the ones that are left, as the auctioneers often tell you.

“Certainly we’ll know a bit more about her this time next year and hopefully we’ll see her running around in a few stakes races.”
