Chesnut like her sire, Lot 1001 is a half-sister to four Stakes horses, including talented stayer Desert Skyline, out of the Group 2 winning mare Diamond Tango.
It marked a second six-figure sale of the week for Australia, with a colt offered as Lot 789 from Ringfort Stud having been knocked down to Peter and Ross Doyle for 125,000gns. A late April foal, the colt is a half-brother to Group 2 Vintage Stakes third Youth Spirit (Camelot), out of a half-sister to Stakes winners Blaine and Bogart.
