Listed winner Zoustyle’s half-brother Sebring topped HK $ 5million Hong Kong international sale
Hong Kong Jockey Club
Gelding from leading stallions Acclamation and Mastercraftsman were among the top lots in Hong Kong’s international auction at Sha Tin on Sunday, when they sold for HK $ 4.8million (Â£ 445,000 / â¬ 520,000) and HK $ 3.8 million.
Acclamation’s son hails from Street Cry Folk Melody, who produced two British winners in Saeed Manana’s Melodic Charm and Pennywhistle, and followed the path of Peter Lau Pak Fai. The Hong Kong Jockey Club had bought him as a Tattersalls Book 2 yearling in 2019 for 300,000 gns when offered by Corduff Stud.
The gray Mastercraftsman, which was purchased by Erick Cheung Ka Shin, had been purchased by HKJC from Goffs Orby for â¬ 200,000 from Glenvale Stud. He is from a Stravinsky sister of Group 1 sprinter Soldiers Tale who has already produced a handful of quick winners.
A half-brother Sebring (Lot 14) to Australian Listed winner Zoustyle won the sale by selling to Harry Tsang Cheung Hin for HK $ 5million (Â£ 463,000 / â¬ 539,000).
The chestnut gelding is descended from a sire whose Hong Kong descendants include Lucky Bubbles of the Chairman’s Sprint Prize and Group 2 Jockey Club Sprint Aethero, and he is descended from the mare Anabaa Fashion, winner of two by seven meters in Germany.
His five-year-old brother, Zoustar, won seven of his 11 starts for Tony Gollan.
Coach Tony Cruz said of his new recruit: “I think we will get results very quickly with this horse, he is a beautiful horse.”
There was a Frankel in the catalog, selected by Tong Cheung Kun at HK $ 2.8m and from Souvenir Delonges, the 3rd winning Siyouni mare from French group Chris Wright.
In total, the 16 lots sold by Sotherby’s auctioneer Robert Sleigh for an average of HK $ 2.95 million, while the median reached HK $ 2.8 million.
William Nader, director of racing activities and operations for the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said: âI thought the horses were well presented today and found a few in particular to look exceptional so I was very happy.
âWe have had great horses come out for sale in the past and I hope a few come out of this one and do very well for us, for Hong Kong and for our owners. Overall I would say that it’s a great success and we are very happy with the result. “
