Zoustar Filly Sells for $280,000 at Inglis Great Southern
The second-top lot at the Inglis Great Southern Sale on Thursday was a lovely Zoustar filly from Donelle that was offered by Tasmanian based Grenville Stud and sold to Blackridge Farm for $280,000.
Grenville Stud’s Bart McCulloch described it as “an amazing result’’.
“We just felt coming here and bringing two horses across that were going to stand out, by Zoustar and So You Think, was the right strategy and we were overwhelmed with the results,’’ McCulloch said.
“The Zoustar was a very popular filly, she was the only Zoustar here in the catalogue so we knew she was going to be well received, she had plenty of inspections and second looks.
“It was quite a battle from $200,000 onwards with either side of the ring exchanging blows, we just sat back and enjoyed it.
“This result means a lot to us. I was a bit surprised at $280,000 because I was smiling there at $160,000 because we thought that was OK money for her and we were happy with that, so to keep going to $280,000 was phenomenal really.’’
Stakes-placed Not a Single Doubt mare Donelle was bought for Grenville Stud by Belmont Bloodstock Agency (FBAA)/Tubba Bloodstock for $180,000 at the 2022 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale from the Newgate Consignment in foal to Zoustar.
