Trelawney Stud are set to offer three quality yearlings at the Inglis Easter Sale next month.
Held on April 3 and 4 this year, the Sydney Sale is renowned as a source of horses with some of the best pedigrees in Australasia and Brent Taylor is confident their horses fit the bill.
“These yearlings were earmarked for this sale as they have both the pedigrees and physical type to suit this auction,” Taylor said. “They are each by a proven sire and are out of well-related, young mares who have proven themselves on the track.
The first to go under the hammer is Lot 176, a Snitzel colt out of six-time winner Indecision. By Per Incanto, Indecision was successful three times at Listed level and placed in the Gr.3 Arawa Stakes.
She is a half-sister to dual Group One winner Viadana and has a black-type pedigree update courtesy of Gr.2 Matamata Breeders’ Stakes runner up Lowe Flying.
This is the first foal out of Indecision who has a Snitzel weanling colt and is in foal to Savabeel.
On the second day of selling Trelawney Stud will offer a Savabeel colt out of six-time winner Smashing, who was also stakes placed on two occasions.
By Pins, Smashing is a daughter of dual Group Two winner Ruud Van Slaats, making her a half-sister to black-type performers Savvan and Ocean’s Fourteen.
This is the second foal out of Smashing, her first foal is a three-year-old Sebring filly knocked down to the Roger James and Robert Wellwood stable for $295,000 at the Karaka sales in 2021. She has placed twice at the trials and is nearing a raceday start.
Smashing is currently in foal to Savabeel.
Trelawney’s final yearling to be offered for sale in 2023 is a Savabeel filly out of Vinevale. By Flying Spur, Vinevale was also a winner of six races and is a half-sister to Group Three winner Purple Sector.
Her first foal is a Per Incanto two-year-old filly sold for $200,000 as a yearling and is in the Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young stable.
Vinevale is in foal Almanzor who has made an exciting start to his southern hemisphere breeding career.
“After two years of having to sell through other drafts due to travel restrictions we are looking forward to consigning our yearlings under our own banner again this year,” Taylor said. “We’ve had great success selling at Sydney and you only have to look at recent race results to see the calibre of our Easter graduates.
“Excelida has placed twice at Group level since mid-February and Pride of Jenni was super when runner up in the Gr.1 Coolmore Stakes a fortnight ago.”
Trelawney Stud’s yearlings will be available for inspection from Tuesday, March 28 and can be found in Barn D.
