ARROWFIELD SIRE STAR IN HONG KONG SALE

A quartet of 3YOs by Not A Single Doubt and Snitzel were among the top-priced lots at the record-breaking Hong Kong International Sale held at Sha Tin Racecourse on Friday evening.

The four horses were bought by the Hong Kong Jockey Club out of the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale for a total of $1,035,000 and re-sold for almost four times that figure. 

The Sale’s second-highest price of $HK7.2 million ($1.167 million) was paid twice, including by Din Kerm for the strapping chestnut gelding by Not A Single Doubt from Heaven Beneath (by More Than Ready). He was offered as a yearling by Segenhoe Stud and sold for $210,000.

Wong See Sum Jackie paid the third-highest price of the Sale, $HK7 million ($1.134 million), for the easy-walking Snitzel-Good Weekend gelding. Out of a full sister to Horse of the Year Weekend Hussler, he was a $475,000 buy from Arrowfield’s 2016 Magic Millions consignment.

$HK6 million ($972,000) was the price paid by Tang Kui Ming for the Not A Single Doubt gelding out of the Snippets mare Aringarosa. He was a $200,000 yearling purchase from MacQuarie Stud.

Glenlogan Park was the original vendor of the Snitzel-Highland Daughter gelding, selling him for $150,000. Two years later he has been knocked down for $HK4.7 million ($761,000) to Ng Yau Sing. 

The 26 lots offered at this year’s Hong Kong Sale sold for an aggregate of $HK135.3 million, achieving an average of $HK5.2 million. Both figures are up on 2017, when 29 lots were offered, and both are new records for the event.

From limited representation in Hong Kong, Not A Single Single Doubt and Snitzel have compiled 30 winners of more than $15 million. Between them, they have 83 lots catalogued for next month’s Inglis Easter Sale, 12 of them offered by Arrowfield
