Sharp Susan Tops Super Select
Tara Madgwick - Tuesday, 17 April 2012

The newly created 'Super Select' session of the 2012 Inglis Australian Easter Broodmare Sale was held in Sydney on Tuesday with wet weather failing to dampen enthusiasm for the top lots, although the clearance rate of 64% justified vendor expectation that this would be a tough sale.

A total of 133 horses were sold at an average $135,748 generating aggregate turnover of $18 million, the median settling at $65,000.

Topping the sale at $1,050,000 for Tyreel Stud was Sharp Susan (USA)(pictured) , a Group II winning half-sister by Touch Gold to Group I winners Spring at Last and Sharp Lisa, who was consigned on behalf of Paul Fleming Thoroughbreds.

Purchased at auction from the US in 2008 by Paul Fleming for $US2million, Sharp Susan was secured by Badgers Bloodstock on behalf of a leading South African based breeder.

"She's a lovely mare and well worth the money," said Grant Pritchard-Gordon of Badgers Bloodstock.

"There is quite a bit going on in the family at the moment. Her first foal, a colt by AP Indy was sold as a yearling last year for $60,000, but was recently re-sold at the Ocala 2YO's in Training Sale for $425,000 to Mark Casse.

"Also her half-sister Sharp Lisa was sold a few years back for $US3.4million and has a two year-old and yearling by Galileo."


Gerry Harvey's Baramul Stud was the biggest buyer, purchasing nine mares for $2.3 million, their acquisitions headed by Magic Millions heroine Mimi Lebrock, who was the second highest priced offering at $1,025,000 and was in foal to Exceed and Excel.
