The 2012 Inglis Sydney Classic proved to be a happy hunting ground for several Eliza Park stallions: Written Tycoon averaged $67,500 (for 2 sold); Astronomer Royal followed on a successful launch at the Gold Coast with 2 sold at an average of $53,500; God’s Own sold up to $75,000 and; Shinzig fetched $51,000 for his sole offering.
But special mention also to the stakes winning son of Redoute’s Choice in Sharkbite, whose flashy colt from the Armidale mare Leenahorn was knocked down for $60,000.
Not surprisingly, given his pedigree, performance, physique and price, Sharkbite has proven to be very popular since retiring to stud and now it appears can you can add another P to the list … progeny.
They’re good sorts!

PS. Sharkbite has five yearlings entered for the Melbourne Premier, including a half sister to NZ stakes winner Travino (Lot 75) and a colt out of Zabeel stakes winner Thousand Veils (Lot 296), while in Adelaide, four Sharkbites will be up for grabs including a well related colt from another Zabeel mare in Close Embrace (Lot 154).
