Lot 350 Top priced filly
09 May 2012


Lot 350 Sold for $120,000 Highest priced filly of the Sale!

Keeping the best for last... This was certainly the case for The Duchess of Bedford and Richard Craddock's bred filly, by Champion racehorse Mastercraftsman from a Champion producing broodmare Upstage.

Upstage is a resident mare at Brighthill and when she foaled down the Mastercraftman's filly in the Spring, the filly certainly came out thinking she was very special...

The beautiful filly was consigned by Brighthill Farm and purchased by Curraghmore Stud on behalf of one of their Australian clients.  Sir Patrick Hogan was the eager underbidder, and possibly now regrets not going just that little bit further...

The filly's half brother, Champion dual Group 1 winning Sprinter, Tavistock stands at Cambridge Stud, and has left some very attractive & athletical progeny and his first crop weanlings sold very well at the sale this week.

Here she is at 5 days old...  A very special filly!
