Lot 820 b f Pins – Lost in Dubai (Dubai Destination) $36,000 (draft: Monovale Farm)
This filly is from the family of 2016 Karaka Million winner Xiong Feng (Iffraaj) and triple Group One winner of the Cox Plate, Orr Stakes, and Yalumba Stakes, Maldivian (Zabeel).
She is a half-sister to the very promising Star Treasure (Lonhro), who staged a big finish to win the 2YO 1100 metres on Boxing Day at Ellerslie, and only a few days ago, on the same track, ran a notable fifth to Melody Belle (Commands) in the Karaka Million.
“She is a real two-year-old type of filly,” David Ellis said. “She is very strong, running sort, that will be nominated for the Karaka Million. We thought she was all class, very precocious, and one of our picks in the Select Sale.
“Monovale Farm is a tremendous breeding farm and we are pleased to have bought another from their draft,” Ellis said.
