Pedigree Boosters - Inglis Easter

3 min read

In the build up to the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale at the Riverside Complex, we will pick out three yearlings each day who have had substantial pedigree updates in the past couple of months.

Today, we have a colt from the family of star 2-year-old Microphone on offer from Arrowfield, a Medaglia D'Oro (USA) colt whose half brother has been in great form in Hong Kong and a trio of Vancouver yearlings from a WA family that has recently welcomed another stakes winner.

Lot 38 - Deep Impact x Grito (Redoute's Choice) - Offered by Arrowfield Stud

This colt's dam Grito (Redoute's Choice) is a half-sister to Sung (Anabaa {USA}), whose Exceed And Excel colt Microphone has proven one of the leading 2-year-olds of this season. He has won the G2 Skyline S. and the Listed Talindert S. since the catalogue was released and was second in the G1 Golden Slipper S. He is also a leading hope in the G1 Inglis Sires to be run on Saturday.

Added to that, Microphone's half-brother Lieder (Street Cry {Ire}) was a recent winner in Adelaide, while another extended family member Cymbalism (Denman) has won her past two starts at Doomben.

Lot 125 - Medaglia d'Oro (USA) x Miss Marielle (Encosta de Lago) - Offered by Newhaven Park

This colt already has plenty of black-type on his pedigree being out of Group 2 winner Miss Marielle (Encosta de Lago) and being a half-brother to a Group 1 winner in Peeping (Redoute's Choice). But the other stakes winning half-brother, Encouraging (Redoute's Choice) has caught fire in Hong Kong under the guidance of John Moore, with a hat-trick of recent wins.

After consecutive wins over 1650m at Happy Valley, the 5-year-old, who raced as France in Australia, winning Inglis Guineas at Scone, stepped back to the 1400m at Sha Tin last month and won by 2.5l.

Miss Marielle's is a three-quarter sister to Eurozone (Northern Meteor) from the WA stakes winner Miss Vandal (Don’t Say Halo {USA}).

Lot 388 - Vancouver x Broadway Belle (Redoute's Choice) - Offered by Holbrook Thoroughbreds

From one of WA's best family's, this colt has a second stakes-winning sibling thanks to Regal Power (Pierro), who claimed victories in the Listed Lex Piper S. and the Listed Melvista S. in March and is one of the favourites for the G2 WA Derby on April 13.

He would join his full brother, and Lot 388's half-brother Action, in winning that race in what would be a ninth success in the race for owner Bob Peters. Peters is also offering two other members of the family by Vancouver at the sale through Holbrook. Lot 360, is a colt out of Broadway Belle's full sister, Antique Belle, and Lot 361 is a filly out of Arcadia Dream (Domesday), the sister to G1 winner Arcadia Queen (Pierro), whose dam is another full sibling to Broadway Belle.
