Strong Supplementaries added to Great Southern

Media Release - Thursday June 6

Weanlings by sires such as Snitzel, Written Tycoon, The Autumn Sun and Home Affairs – as well as a G1 broodmare - headline a strong group of supplementary entries for the Great Southern Sale.

A total of 15 entries have been added to the Great Southern catalogue, details of which are now available online.

The additional weanlings join a catalogue which already features weanlings by a long list of outstanding stallions including Frankel, I Am Invincible, Zoustar, Lord Kanaloa, Wootton Bassett, Toronado etc.

Snitzel has a well related weanling in the supplementary.

The supplementary Snitzel weanling – a colt ex Members Joy and to be offered by Bell River Thoroughbreds – is a half brother to multiple G2 winner Pure Elation.


Among the broodmare additions are Naiconi (Nicconi) – a three-time winner from just nine starts and finished 2nd to Vienna Princess in the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes – and Reo (Rubick), also a three-time winner and G1 placed in last year’s Queensland Oaks behind Amokura.

They join an already strong group of broodmares catalogued for the sale, many on enticing covers to stallions such as Alabama Express, Blue Point, Grunt, Harry Angel, Jacquinot, Ole Kirk, Pierata, Pierro, Pinatubo, Royal Meeting, Shamus Award, Spirit of Boom, Tassort, The Autumn Sun, Toronado, Wootton Bassett, Zousain etc.

The Great Southern Sale will be held at Oaklands in Melbourne next Thursday and Friday, June 13 and 14.

Inglis’ Victorian Bloodstock Manager James Price said: “These supplementary entries are fantastic additions to what was already a really strong group of weanlings and mares.

“Interest in the sale has been very good to this point and I’m confident the catalogue has the strength and depth to appease a wide range of buyers, be that end users or traders.

“The Great Southern Sale continues to provide fantastic results for those who support it, every year there seems to be new G1 performers out of it and its pinhooking results are up there with the best in Australia each year.’’

Inspections for the Great Southern Sale begin at Oaklands on Monday.
