Proven Thoroughbreds concluded the Gold Coast March QTIS Yearling Sale with two purchases by SIZZLING and STAR WITNESS.
Lot 347 (pictured), bought for $75k, was the SIZZLING filly – a standout physical type from a mare (Art Gallery) whose had three foals to the races for three winners, including recent Doomben winner Iron Craft (Rothesay).
This filly boasted a deep girth and strong shoulder while SIZZLING is currently the only Group I winning 2yo at stud by the country’s leading sire SNITZEL.

Proven Thoroughbreds then paid $40k for lot 389, a filly by up-and-coming sire STAR WITNESS – producer of recent stakes winners GLOBAL GLAMOUR, STAR TURN, and FUHRYK.
The dam, COOPER’S GIRL (CHOISIR), is a three-quarter sister to dual-hemisphere Group I winner STARSPANGLEDBANNER.
CHOISIR’s influence was evident in this neat, compact filly. She has a terrific hindquarter and looks a real early type.
