$400,000 for Not A Single Doubt colt

A colt by Not A Single Doubt has topped Saturday evening’s buoyant opening session of the Inglis ClassicSale.

Tyreel Stud presented the grey colt out of Pinocchio (by Encosta de Lago), a full sister to multiple Group1 winner Racing To Win, and he was knocked down to Carmel Size for $400,000. That’s the second-highest price in the history of the Inglis Classic Sale.

Carmel Size said, “He’s a really athletic colt, very neat, I liked the way he got around, he’s a really great mover. He’s still got a lot of improvement in him physically so he won’t be rushed.’’

Not A Single Doubt now claims a total of ten yearlings sold for $400,000 or more, all of them offered in 2016 or 2017. His current top price of $850,000 was paid by James Harrison for Arrowfield’s Colorado Claire colt at last year’s Inglis Easter Sale. Named Gunnison, he has won two trials, most recently at Gosford on 6 February.

Also among the top ten prices paid at the Classic Sale’s first session were $310,000 for the Snitzel-Lovemelikearock colt (Rosemont/Bryan Guy), $220,000 for the Not A Single Doubt-Lago Joy colt (Middlebrook Valley Lodge/Sun Bloodstock) and $210,000 for Karuta Queen’s full brother (Tyreel Stud/Mauro Poletti).

All were offered during the Sale’s new Gold Riband Session,which exceeded expectations with an average of $130,200 and a clearance rate of 88 per cent. The overall average for the night’s selling was $90,845, well up on last year’s figure of $57,053.

The Sale continues on Sunday and concludes on Monday with a shorter session, to accommodate the re-scheduled race meeting at Royal Randwick.
