Encosta colt “changes hands” for $150,000 at Inglis Weanling Sale

The Inglis Weanling Sale exploded into life on Wednesday afternoon when the Encosta de Lago half-brother to Group 1 winning mare Hot Danish sold for $150,000.

Catalogued as Lot 133 from Holbrook Thoroughbreds (as agent), the brown colt from Hot ‘N’ Breezy was a buy back for his Port Macquarie based breeder David Parker.  

Hot ‘N’ Breezy was covered by Choisir after delivering the Encosta de Lago colt last October.

Parker also bred Hot Danish and sold her to Les Bridge for $32,000 at the 2005 Inglis Scone yearling sale.  She earned over $2.33 million in prizemoney.

New Zealand pin-hookers continued to make their presence felt at Newmarket on Wednesday.  Dean Hawthorne and Mark Treweek signed sale sheets earlier in the session before Michael Wallace weighed in with $71,000 for a colt by Yarraman Park sire Magic Albert.

The Magic Albert – Hearth colt is the second foal of a half-sister to G1 Hong Kong Derby winner Super Satin (Danehill Dancer).
