Encosta Colts Popular at NZB

Colts by champion sire Encosta de Lago were popular during the first session of the 2012 NZB Premier Yearling Sale in New Zealand on Monday.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club again showed their support of Encosta de Lago purchasing colts from Ballermoss and Giovana for $350,000 and $310,000.

The Ballermoss colt was consigned by Curraghmore Stud and is a half-brother to Group I winner Sphenophyta, while the colt from four-time Group I winner Giovana was offered by Lyndhurst Farm.

Encosta de Lago finished as the leading sire by average at the end of the first session with three yearlings averaging $280,000.
