James Harron Bloodstock went all out at this year’s Inglis Easter Yearling Sale purchasing the season’s most expensive colt.
Lot 49, a chestnut colt offered by Corumbene Stud was secured by Harron for a staggering $2.8 million.
From the same family as star galloper Menari and by champion stallion Snitzel, it was a pedigree and individual Harron wasn’t prepared to let go.
"He's the best yearling I've seen for years,” Harron said.
“He's a very unique and special horse, he was the one we wanted and you have to push for those ones.
"I'm very excited to get him, beautiful pedigree, beautiful physique, a great attitude and a great demeanour to go with it.
“He looks very precocious and is off a great farm in Corumbene...he really does tick all the boxes.”
Harron secured him for his colts’ syndicate with the youngster’s racing career to be guided by Peter and Paul Snowden.
