A highlight of the second record-breaking day at the Inglis Classic Sale was the $160,000 purchase of a Dundeel colt by leading syndicator Star Thoroughbreds & champion trainer Chris Waller.
Arrowfield presented the good-looking son of city winner Sport Chic with the silvery tail also seen on Dundeel's $900,000 Magic Millions colt out of champion Miss Finland - both mares being daughters of Redoute's Choice.
Dundeel's second-highest price of the Sale so far is the $110,000 paid by David Pfieffer for Widden Stud's strongly built filly out of Group-placed juvenile Can't Hackit (by Fasliyev).
Six of the 7 Dundeel yearlings offered during the first two days have sold, averaging $86,250, almost 3.5 times his service fee, and above the sale-to-date average of $75,469 - itself 31% up on last year's final Sale average.
Arrowfield will offer his final two Classic Sale yearlings tomorrow: Lot 514, the daughter of Golden Sunshine, and Lot 565, the colt out of Lady Annaliese.
