The top priced filly at the Barretts Select Two Year Old Sale on Monday was by evergreen sire Tale of the Cat and fetched $350,000.
Consigned for sale by Sequel Bloodstock, the star filly was bought by Emmanuel de Seroux’s Narvick International on behalf of Katsumi Yoshida of Japan and was a successful pinhook having been bought initially for just $75,000 at Keeneland September last year.
“She is very athletic,” de Seroux said of the filly, who breezed a furlong in a bullet 9 4/5 seconds.
“She went fast, she looked sound and she has an excellent temperament. We like her very much.”
The filly is from unraced Jill’s Gem, a Mineshaft daughter of stakes-winner Wilzada.
