2018 Easter Preview
26 Mar 2018

Trelawney Stud will present a draft of six yearlings for the 2018 Inglis Easter Sale starting April 9 at the new Riverside Stables.

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 Rosehill.

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.
