$345,000 for Encosta Colt

The third session of the 2012 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale was highlighted by the full brother to former world champion sprinter and HK Horse of the Year Sacred Kingdom.

By Encosta de Lago colt from Courtroom Sweetie, he was much admired in pre-sale inspections and lived up to expectation when he entered the ring.

Consigned by his breeders, Andy Calvert and his family of Kornong Stud Farm, the star colt was sold for $345,000 to the bid of Victorian trainer Dean Binaisse to be the second highest priced offering at the sale.

His famous brother Sacred Kingdom was sold at this sale in 2005 for $200,000 and went on to win 17 races including the Group I HK International Sprint twice, so there will be high expectation placed on this colt.
