$350,000 for So You Think Filly a Pinhook Winner
Duncan Ramage of DGR Thoroughbreds is a great judge of a So You Think and he paid $350,000 at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale on Monday for a filly from Light Express.
“I’m still here for one of the last lots so yes, there was a keenness to stay here to get this filly,” said Duncan Ramage.
“This filly is very athletic, the stallion throws Group 1 winners that are colts or fillies from 1400m to a mile and a half, the filly is out of a Fastnet Rock mare, it just all made sense. She’s just such an athlete.
“As for the price, we were running on fumes at that point but she’s worth it.’’
The second highest priced filly sold so far at this sale, she was consigned by Queensland based vendor JJJ Thoroughbreds and is a half-sister to three winners from stakes-placed Fastnet Rock mare Light Express, a three-quarter-sister to triple Group I winning South African Champion 3YO Filly Alboran Sea.
She was a super successful pinhook having been sourced from the Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale for $40,000 by Julie Brown of JJJ Thoroughbreds.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this. I was hoping for $100,000, so this is just unbelievable,’’ a stunned Brown said of the filly, who was her sole offering in the Classic Sale.
“The filly has been a dream, she’s been the perfect angel for me all week, she’s been parading non-stop since we got here, been super popular, but she’s been so good.
“When I looked at her in Melbourne as a weanling I loved her and now she’s turned into a pinhook of a lifetime.’’
