AFL legend Kevin Sheedy ensured the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale got off to a flying start when his homebred Bel Esprit filly – from the Naturalism mare Georgia – was knocked down to Apollo Ng for $120,000.
A full sister to the stakes winner Peach Tree, Kevin’s filly (below) entered the ring as Lot 3 and was very popular in the days leading up to the sale.
Apart from the Bel Esprit on day one, Eliza Park also sold the highest priced Churchill Downs ($85,000), the highest priced General Nediym ($50,000), a Magnus for $80,000 and a Danzero for $90,000.
Eliza Park will sell 11 yearlings today (Tuesday), including three colts by Magnus a Bel Esprit, Fastnet Rock, Choisir, Dehere, Not a Single Doubt, General Nediym, Hard Spun and Elusive Quality (sire of Saturday’s Blue Diamond winner Sepoy).
