Pride Of Jenni
She’s a Queen. She was secured for $100,000 at the Inglis Classic Sales. She has racked up $1,109,415 in prizemoney. She was placed in a Tristarc, ran second in a Coolmore, ran second in a Stocks Stakes and won an Empire Rose. We don’t always see mares race into their sixth-year-old year. Most of them who race as well as her start looking for the breeding barn. However, she seems to be a force to be reckoned with.
Darley Champions Sprint, Group 1 – 1200m
The Matthew Smith trained gelding was a $40,000 purchase from the Inglis Classic highway yearling sale. With a purse of $1,372,650 in prizemoney already conquered you can’t help but admire the underdog in him. He’s already achieved success in a Poseidon Stakes, a Show County and been placed in both a Coolmore and The Shorts.
He is on his way to earning a million dollars in prize money. He has claimed $713,125 in prize money so far and subsequently, this run will help him get there. He has won a W.J Adams, placed in The Heath, won a Bobbie Lewis and a Gilgai. He looks to have found his feet with trainer Clinton McDonald and for $78,000 he was a handy horse to buy.
She’s worth her weight in gold. $80,000 was all it took to buy her at the Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling sale. Her success speaks for itself, she’s racked up a whopping $6,022,875 for connections. She has won a Sapphire, Manikato, she ran second in a Moir and the William Reid Stakes. Most recently she defeated both the Everest winner and place-getter when winning the Giga Kick stakes in Sydney last week. You would love to own her. Nevertheless, $80,000 seems to be inexpensive for a mare who will have plenty of residual value in the breeding barn and has won over 75 times her purchase price.
All of these Group 1 runners today were purchased for under $100,000. They were all offered at public auction and have all exceeded expectations. It’s the beauty of racing, the opportunities are endless.
