Easter Success for High Chaparral

The first Australian conceived crop of yearlings by High Chaparral have received a warm welcome at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale with 18 youngsters averaging $284,167.

A superior source of classic horses, High Chaparral will have four runners in the Group I ATC Australian Derby this Saturday including the red hot favourite and triple Group I winner It’s a Dundeel.

His best result at this sale came with a blue-blooded filly from Deedra that was bred and consigned for sale by John Singleton’s Strawberry Hill Stud and sold for $700,000.

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.
