Brown Colt
Domesday x River Fairy

Near black with plenty of size and a great attitude, this colt is from of Victoria’s most prolific families and is looming as the sleeper of our draft. This colt’s dam was a handy performer ($115k+ in stakes) and is a half sister to G1 sprinter RIVER DOVE, plus the dams of G2 winner ONEWORLD, CROSS CURRENT and last season’s Group winners FIRST COMMAND and KULGRINDAH. Other close relations include G2 winning 2YO, WILLOW CREEK.

Purchased by Lloyd Kennewell & Cameron Cooke for $105,000.



Lot 544
Brown Colt
Commands x She's Perfect

One of the absolute stand outs at Melbourne ’14 - a must see! This near black colt is the spitting image of his sire who is one of the leading stallions in Australia with over 700 winners and 60+ stakes winners ... a tremendous source of precocious speed. Boasting a black type family, this colt is out of a Quest For Fame half sister to stakes winner and G1 placed 2YO, MY MIDDI. This is a cross which has already produced 6 stakes winners including G1 winners SKILLED and EREWHON.

Purchased by Prima Park Bloodstock NZ for $155,000.



Lot 667
Chestnut Filly
Equiano (FR) x Exo

A very neat filly who does everything quickly and gives the indication she will run fast and early. This filly is from the first crop of dual King’s Stand winner and highly popular stallion, Equiano, and is a half sister to 4 winners including 2YO stakes winner DIAMOND TO PEGASUS (6 wins). Other relations include Sydney Group winner ADVENTUROUS and Rory’s Jester stakes winner PERMAI, in turn the dam of multiple Melbourne stakes winner and G1 runnerup, PERMAISCUOUS.

Purchased by Shea Eden for $18,000.



Lot 673
Chestnut Colt
Any Given Saturday (USA) x Fuss

A well balanced colt by a highly underrated sire and is arguably the nicest type of our entire draft. The colt’s dam is the Flemington Group winner, FUSS, who has now produced 6 winners from 6 to race including stakes winner and multiple Melbourne winner BACKBONE, in training with Mick Kent and a winner at his last start. Another of the half sister’s is the Robbie Griffiths trained Native Land who has won or placed in her only 3 starts and clearly has a big future. Is this 7 from 7?

Purchased Michael Wallace/Michael Freedman for $65,000
