Trelawney Stud will present a draft of six
yearlings for the 2018 Inglis Easter Sale starting April 9 at the new Riverside
Each year a select draft is sent to Sydney
for auction and the farm has an excellent record selling through the Australian
sale, most recently highlighted by Gr.1 Sydney Cup hopeful Master of Arts
(Mastercraftsman x Petite Verdot) who won Saturday's Gr.3 Manion Cup at
The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained
Francaletta (High Chaparral x Snow Peak) is another to have been sold through
the Inglis Sale. A winner of the Gr.3
Taranaki Breeders' Stakes, Francaletta has twice placed at Group Two level this
season and is currently in Australia on a Sydney campaign.
Among the 2018 Easter highlights for
Trelawney is the half-brother to the Group One placed Spieth by ShamExpress (pictured above).
Offered as lot 386 the colt out of Stella Livia is also a half to three-time winner
Travancore and is from the family of Charm Spirit.
Lot 98 is a Savabeel filly out of a
half-sister to Champion two-year-old Il Quello Veloce in Donna Cattiva. This is a well known family that includes the
likes of Champion Broodmare Parfore and stakes winning two-year-old Long Leaf.
The first foal from the half-sister to
Ocean Park in Lady Sayyida will go through the ring as lot 196. This is a
family that continues to gain black type with Group One winner Grunt and the stakes place Addison providing
pedigree updates since the catalogue went to print.
There are two Tavistock fillies in the
draft. The first is lot 221 out of the
well-bred French mare Mansera, the other is lot 328 out of the stakes placed
Rockaduabi who has had two foals to race for two winners.
The final lot to go through the ring for
Trelawney is lot 445 an Exceed and Excel colt out of Zarzuela. Group Two winner Zarzuela is also the dam of
Group Three winner Serious Satire and the Bjorn Baker trained
Danzie who has won once and placed twice from four starts this season.
The yearlings fly to Australia on Monday
and will be available for viewing in Barn I, stables 21-28.
