The sale season is coming to an end and looking at this years purchases, Pride Racing are thrilled with the new additions that have been added to the team.

Inglis made a bold move this year with the new Riverside Complex however it seems to have paid off. As expected, the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale was extremely strong with many international buyers throwing their hat into the ring. The overall figures achieved in Book One were the second-highest grossing sale in Inglis history which isn't surprising considering there were 22 lots sold for $1,000,000 or more throughout the three day sale.

With the tough competition it was very rewarding to secure four lots from the Inglis Easter yearling sale and we can't wait to see what they have to offer.

Our first purchase was Lot 296
She is by the Darley stallion Shooting To Win. He himself was a winner at 2 and accumulated over $900k in prize money. He looks to have stamped her well with her athletic action and level headed attitude. She is out of the unraced Commands mare Premeditated. Joe felt she oozed quality and was well bought for $140k.

Our next two yearlings were purchased by our wonderful client Reed Racing in Queensland who were on the look out for two classic colts.

Harry Reed's first pick was Lot Lot 374

A well put together Shooting To Win colt out of a two time winning mare Spot On Maggie. This boy has plenty of presence and covers the ground when he walks. He handled the whole sale experience exceptionally well and looks to be a lovely style of colt. He is correct and ticks all the right boxes.

Not long after, Harry secured his Shooting To Win colt when the hammer dropped on Lot Lot 466

A strong individual by Newgate stallion Wandjina out of a Encosta De Lago mare Mitzi. Mitzi is the half sister to Margham who is the dam of the listed winner Mohave. His page boasts winner after winner and he certainly has the looks to back up his breeding. His sire Wandjina is the son of Snitzel and Gai Waterhouse proclaimed he was the fastest two year old in her stable and the best three year old in Australia. Harry was delighted with his two purchases from the Easter Yearling Sale and Pride Racing can't wait for them to arrive in the barn.

Our final purchase of the sale was a filly whose family we know very well. This girl was well prepared by the Widden team in the Hunter Valley and quite frankly Joe couldn't wait to meet her. Lot Lot 505

She is by Star Witness out of the black type producing mare A Fairy's Kiss. This mare has blessed us with stable war horse Destiny's Kiss who has won over $1.2m in prize money. What Destiny's Kiss lacks in size he makes up in heart. Every time his hoof touches the turf on race day he gives us his all.

This girl walked out to parade for Joe like a professional. She seemed to thrive in the busy environment of the sale and handled herself in an elegant fashion. When this girl joins the Pride Racing team she will not only be joining big brother Destiny's Kiss but she will also be joining her two other siblings Bon Equus and Live The Moment.

As the sun comes down on the Easter Yearling Sale, Pride Racing raise a glass to another successful sales season. It was a pleasure to attend all of the yearling sales this year however it seemed to be a touch more special being on our home turf at Warwick Farm.
