$700,000 for High Chaparral Filly

English Derby winner High Chaparral was the busiest sire in Australia in 2010 and has some stunning youngsters on offer at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale highlighted by a filly from Deedra that fetched $700,000 on Tuesday.

Bred and consigned for sale by John Singleton’s Strawberry Hill Stud, the glorious bay filly was knocked down to Colm Santry Bloodstock and is bred with a classic Oaks filly pedigree.

She is a half-brother to stakes-placed War and is the second foal of Deedra, a winning half-sister by Zabeel to four-time Group I winner Tuesday Joy and Group I winner Sunday Joy, the dam of champion mare More Joyous.
Top selling colt for High Chaparral at $450,000 was an eye-catching youngster from Brave and Bold, that had a strong resemblance to his best offspring to date in 10-time Group I winner So You Think.

Consigned for sale by Milburn Creek Thoroughbreds, the colt was purchased by Hong Kong based buyer George Moore and is a half-brother to stakes-winner Armed for Action, his dam a daughter of Group I Queensland Oaks and Derby winner Bravery.

High Chaparral had six yearlings average $318,333 during the first session.
