Last week’s March QTIS Sale yielded four bargain purchases for Proven Thoroughbreds, taking our total number of yearlings for 2020 to 30.
The QTIS Sale has developed a reputation for offering exceptional value and that was heightened this year in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic.
As all four of Proven’s acquisitions are fillies, they will be eligible for QTIS’s lucrative fillies bonuses which allocates almost $80k to the winner of a Saturday race in Brisbane (some $20k more than the equivalent in Sydney!).
While a midweek QTIS fillies race sees the winner net $33k, compared to $22k in Sydney.
See trainer quotes, footage, photos and pedigrees on our latest purchases below:
— SPILL THE BEANS x M’INDIGO filly —
$17,500 + GST
“Neat, well balanced filly who is a great mover. Her first three dams have all been 2yo winners. She looks a perfect filly to take advantage of the lucrative QTIS fillies bonuses.” – Steve O’Dea
— BETTER THAN READY x HANAAN filly —
$36,000 + GST
“This filly is a lovely combination of her sire Better Than Ready and her dam sire High Chaparral. Looks a sprinter/miler type who has real quality about her.” – Steve O’Dea
— SPIRIT OF BOOM x CLASSIC GUITAR —
$20,000 + GST
“Great value buy being by Queensland’s leading stallion out of a mare with a perfect record in the breeding barn. This filly is a good moving, robust filly who I think will really come into her own at three.” – Steve O’Dea
— FURNACES x BOVESPA filly —
$20,000 (No GST)
“Athletic filly who looks like she will be a real runner. Her dam has done a great job with four winners from four runners including 2 x $200k plus earners. She reminded me a lot of her half-sister Amber’s Crown who won six races for the stable.” – Steve O’Dea
