“This is a strong filly by a sire we’ve had a lot of luck with – most notably SESAR and CANDIKA. And it’s not often you can get a filly by a proven Hunter Valley sire eligible for both BOBS and the lucrative QTIS fillies bonuses. – Steve O’Dea
Price: $3,125 (2.5%)
“I’ve been lucky enough to train a lot of good sprinters and there’s two things they’ve got to have – size and strength – and this colt has plenty of both. He’s a very powerful looking horse.” – Joe Pride.
Price: $5,000 (2.5%)
“I’d be very surprised if HELLBENT doesn’t hit the ground running as a sire. He’s by I AM INVINCIBLE and has produced a quality filly here.” – Joe Pride.

“You can wax lyrical about this filly’s striking looks but it’s her pedigree that really stands out. The dam is a full-sister to Group 1 winner WOORIM while the second dam has produced 8 winners from as many runners!” – Steve O’Dea
Price: $875 (2.5%)
“Hand on my heart I think this is a really nice horse. I liked him from the moment I saw him at the sales – he’s got a real style about him and is a good sized individual. I think he could get to the races as a late 2YO.” – Joe Pride
Price: $2,750 (2.5%)
“This is a lovely horse. He’s well balanced with a good strong back on him which I love to see in a thoroughbred. He’s got the scope to develop into a miler and maybe even further.” – Joe Pride.
Price: $3,350 (2.5%)
“I think this is a really nice cross – you’ve got the speed of MERCHANT NAVY – a son of FASTNET ROCK – with a daughter of HIGH CHAPARRAL. And that mating is evident in this colt’s physique.” – Joe Pride.
Price: $1,900 (2.5%)
“This filly has plenty of purpose about her. The best fillies I find often have a bit of an opinion of themselves and this filly fit the bill at the sales.” – Joe Pride.
Price: $3,625 (2.5%)
“You don’t have to go too far back in this girl’s pedigree to find some really nice stayers. I think she’s quite mature for her age and has the attributes to be an Oaks type filly.” – Joe Pride.
Price: $2,350 (2.5%)
“This colt is already a nice size but I think he still has signficant growing ahead of him. I can see him furnishing into a lovely colt. He moves well and had a great attitude at the sales.” – Joe Pride.
