Sun Classique's first yearling in the Inglis Easter Sale

THE first foal out of the Group 1 winner and $4.2million earner Sun Classique has been added to the entries for the 2012 April Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. It is a catalogue that already includes a half-sister to Black Caviar, as well as a brother to So You Think.

Sun Classique's yearling colt, her first foal,  is by Oasis Dream, and will be offered for sale by Patinack Farm.

The champion three-year-old filly of South Africa and champion older mare of UAE, Sun Classique was covered in Britain by Oasis Dream to southern hemisphere time. She was then exported to Australia and sold to Patinack Farm for $2million at Inglis’s 2010 Australian Easter Broodmare Sale.

“Patinack Farm will be out to make its mark as sellers of top quality prospects at Australia’s leading yearling sales in 2012, and this colt exemplifies our commitment to offering buyers the best yearlings off our farm,” said Patinack Farm's stud manager Ben Lawrence.

“From the day he was foaled down on our Sandy Hollow property he has been regarded as one of the best foals Patinack has produced, with the strength and athleticism that made his mother and father two of the best racehorses of their generation."

Patinack Farm stallion Casino Prince sired this year’s Easter Yearling Sale topper, a half-brother to Black Caviar, and the Flying Spur stallion will again be well represented at the 2012 renewal, with colts from Balcanny, Curvaceous, Showeranasherry and Boudi Woudi.

“We have made a concertedeffort to purchase quality young mares straight off-the-track to put to our stallions or in-foal to top sires, and next year’s yearlings will be a direct result of those decisions," added Lawrence.
