Jessicabeel failed to meet her reserve in the supplementary section of the Inglis Broodmare Sale on Thursday.
Jessicabeel (Zabeel) was passed-in for $475,000 when offered by Edinglassie Stud on behalf of owner Jason Abrahams. She reached a career-high with a G1 victory in the 2010 AJC Sydney Cup.
Bred by Sir Patrick and Lady Hogan, Jessicabeel was a $220,000 purchase for trainer John O’Shea at the 2007 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale.
Chance Bye (Snitzel) also fell short of her reserve. She was a G2 winner of the STC Silver Slipper during a brilliant juvenile campaign in 2009-10. She failed to fire this season and was last seen pulling up with an injured shoulder at Rosehill on March 26.
Offered by Widden Stud as agent for part-owner and trainer Michael Tubman, she was passed-in for $340,000.
Earlier on Thursday, the final select session was topped by Isle of Gibraltar who made $350,000 to the bid of NZ nursery Blandford Lodge. The Danehill mare was a G3 winner of the 2004 Adelaide Guineas and was offered by Coolmore Stud as agent. She was sold in foal to High Chaparral.
Newly appointed Magic Millions CEO Vin Cox bought the next two mares on Thursday’s leaderboard. Fast Talker (Fastnet Rock) made $280,000 in foal to Stratum. She won three races in Melbourne and Adelaide and is from a stakes wining half-sister to G1 Golden Slipper winner Crystal Lily.
Cox also paid $280,000 for Imagining (Flying Spur). A winner in Sydney and Melbourne, she was sold in foal to High Chaparral. Her dam Episode (Scenic) was a dual G1 winner of the Australasian and South Australian Oaks at Morphettville.
The general session of the Inglis Broodmare Sale continues with the final 110 lots of the auction on Thursday afternoon.
