Darley’s Northwood Park sire Brazen Beau was a superior racehorse and he is now starting to repeat that success with his progeny in the sales ring.
It has been a long, long time indeed since a Victorian based sire has gained the title of Leading First Season Sire at Australia’s leading yearling sale Inglis Easter. But that is just what Brazen Beau did this past week.
The first yearlings by the Champion sprinter have proved very popular with buyers with an average of $352,000 across six yearlings sold.
The sire had already been the Leading First Season Sire at February’s Inglis Classic Sale.
His top price was $700,000, given by McEvoy Mitchell Racing for a cracking filly out of the Group-placed Encosta de Lago mare Pretty Penny.
The former Glentree Thoroughbreds owned Pretty Penny is already dam of three Black Type winners including Group 2 winner and multiple Group 1-placed Sertorius as well as recent Group winner Dollar For Dollar (trained by McEvoy).
Godolphin Australia purchased his highest-priced colt when going to $400,000 to secure the Hesket Bloodstock bred youngster out of Listed winner Veuvelicious, who hails from the family of the great racemare Go For Wand.
