A stunning filly by Yarraman Park’s champion sire I Am Invincible from dual Group I winner Srikandi lit up the sale ring on Thursday at the Inglis Australian Weanling Sale when fetching $600,000.
Consigned by Kitchwin Hills, the star filly topped the sale and has the honour of becoming the most expensive weanling by her sire ever sold.
Bloodstock agent Andrew Williams purchased the filly and described her as “a weanling of the highest quality”.
“She deserved to make that money, she’s got a really good shape to her, good head, walked well and was very similar to the dam,” he said.
“It seemed like a very international bidding war there, there were people from all over the globe bidding which is a great indicator for this sale in general.”
Kitchwin’s Mick Malone was understandably thrilled with the result.
“We thought something north of the $400,000 mark would be her go but realistically didn’t expect $600,000,” Malone said.
“Srikandi was a great race filly and is proving early to be a quality producer as well, with her first yearling selling for $400,000 and now this, so whoever buys her at the Chairman’s Sale tomorrow night is in for some fun.”
