On a night where the average price at the Inglis Chairman’s Sale was over $470,000, there were five million dollar mares so let’s give them a quick look.
Top price was $2.7 million for Shout The Bar (Not A Single Doubt x Drinks All Round (NZ) (O’Reilly)). Bought by Coolmore’s Tom Magnier from the Glenesk Thoroughbreds draft.
A two time Group One winner sold as a racing and breeding proposition and will have a brief Queensland preparation before heading to Coolmore to be mated with Home Affairs.
Next was Sia, making $1.6 million to Hilldene Farm and James Bester Bloodstock from the draft of Segenhoe Thoroughbreds.
A seven-year-old mare by Fastnet Rock out of Gr.2 Reisling Stakes winner Hips Don’t Lie (Stravinsky), Sia is a full-sister to three two-year-old stakes winners, Ennis Hill, Lake Geneva and Acrobat.
She’s no stranger to an Inglis sale ring in fact, being a $1.1 million Easter yearling and changed hands for $780,000 in the 2018 edition of the Chairman’s Sale.
She has had one foal to date, missed in 2020, lost her foal in 2021, and was carrying a service to Snitzel.
Dual stakes winner Ellicazoom (8m Testa Rossa x Ellicorsam) made $1.45 million to Sheamus Mills Bloodstock and Longwood Thoroughbreds Farm from the Kitchwin Hills draft.
Having previously been sold at the Magic Million National Broodmare Sale in 2019 for $800,000, she has plenty of upside with her first foal by I Am Invincible making $625,000 as a yearling last year.
She has a yearling filly by Exceed And Excel and was carrying a service to I Am Invincible.
Quantum Mechanic (5m Deep Field x Life In A Metro (Fastnet Rock)) was another yet to go to stud, having last raced on April 23.
She made $1.2 million to Chambers Bloodstock in South Australia from the Sledmere Stud draft.
The winner of the Sunline Stakes (Gr.2), she is a half-sister to Mount Pleasant, a Group Two winner in South Africa and her dam is a half-sister to two Group One Oaks winners in Abbey Marie and Absolutely.
The fifth was Group One Coolmore Stakes winner Daysee Doom (Domesday x See A Victory (Mister C)), making $1.1 million to Widden Stud and Redvers Bloodstock from the Sledmere Stud draft.
Carrying a service to Wootton Bassett, she has two foals on the ground, a colt by Exceed And Excel and filly by Deep Field.
