Lot 375 bay filly Hinchinbrook – Unlawful (Sebring) $95,000 (draft: Landsdowne Park)
From the last yearling crop of ill-fated stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock), a half-brother to three-time Champion Sire Snitzel, she is out of a mare by Sebring who was a leading sire, huge loss to the Australian breeding industry and already left a stakes winner as an emerging broodmare sire.
Hinchinbrook is the sire current Golden Slipper (Gr. 1, 1200m) favourite Cellsabeel and duel Hong Kong Sprint (Gr. 1, 1200m) winner Beat The Clock.
“The mare was good enough to win four times in Australia, from an imported family and we thought she was a really good type of filly,” said Te Akau principal David Ellis.
“She has enough strength and precocity about her to suggest she will get up and go a bit sooner as a two-year-old, but certainly train on as a three-year-old.”
