$500,000 Fastnet Rock Filly Tops Inglis Premier Book One

Champion sire Fastnet Rock put his stamp on the 2018 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale on Tuesday with his filly from Lady Melksham fetching $500,000 to top Book One.

Consigned by Rushton Park, the filly is the second foal of Group III winner Lady Melksham and was snapped up by Godolphin.

"She's a quality filly by a champion stallion out of a Group III winning mare,'' Godolphin's Racing and Bloodstock Manager Jason Walsh said.

"One of the things we're trying to source this year is a bit of diversity and top-class racing prospects that can hopefully do it on the racecourse and ultimately join our broodmare program and we thought she was a filly capable of doing both those things.”
