It was another seven-figure result as Group 2 winner, Fiesta (I Am Invincible), who was offered by Glenesk Thoroughbreds on behalf of her syndicate of owners at Star Thoroughbreds, and sold for $1.35 million.
“She’s clearly got some speed elements and I love this filly. She was a high-class 2-year-old and, for an I Am Invincible, she trained on as an older filly and mare,” Rosemont’s General Manager of Bloodstock, Ryan McEvoy, said.
“She’s a big, strong, roomy mare who will carry a good foal. I just love that race record that will go and produce those two and 3-year-olds and that’s, ultimately, what we’re trying to do by getting a broodmare band that allows us to do that and have horses running in those big 2-year-old races.
“Fiesta comes with a free nomination to a Darley stallion after winning the Princess Series, so maybe we’ll look at sending her to Dubawi!”
It was another million-dollar plus result for a mare owned by Star Thoroughbreds, who sold Invincibella (I Am invincible) through Glenesk at this Sale last year for $1.3 million.
“We are delighted, we thought she was a million-dollar plus mare, but you are not always certain. It’s a really good result. She was a great racemare. She has gone to a great farm at Rosemont and we couldn’t be more thrilled,” Star Thoroughbreds’ Denise Martin said.
“When our mares are bringing those sorts of prices you know that they are going to a high-class farm and they will be given the opportunity so we are just excited at the moment. We know that she will be really well looked after and we are elated.”
