Causeway mare tops  Inglis broodmare opener

DAY ONE of the Inglis Australian Weanling and Breeding Stock Sale saw five mares top the A$200,000 (£111,111/€125,556) mark.

Selling began with the select broodmare section, which accrued A$1.968 million (£1,093,333/€1,235,467), an average of A$38,589 (£21,438/€24,225) and was topped by the six-year-old Hides, from Coolmore Stud, selling for A$350,000 (£194,444/€219,722).

The daughter of Giant's Causeway, whose produce are as yet unraced and was herself unraced,is a half-sister to Scintillation, a triple Group 1 winner in Hong Kong, and Shania Dane, a dual Group 2 winner in Australia.

Her dam is a half-sister to Sandmason, who was trained by Henry Cecil to win the Hardwicke Stakes, and is from the family of Slip Anchor. She was knocked down to Newgate Bloodstock.

The Quest For Fame mare Back Pass, a twelve-year-old half-sister to Three Valleys out of Skiable, a half-sister to the superb producer Hasili, sold for A$260,000(£144,444/€163,222).

A winer on the all-weather at four, Back Pass's first foal is the Listed winner Sharkbite, and she has had one other winner from three runners to date.

Bellerive Stud, who consigned Back Pass, also consigned the Listed-placed four-year-old Pachanga, who equalled Back Pass's selling price.
