MARCH 08, 2018: The first of the stud’s two yearling sale engagements this month was highlighted by another major six-figure lot sold on behalf of a greatly valued Bowness Stud client. Day 2 of the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale at Oaklands Junction witnessed Lot 271, a quality Zoustar colt from the Exceed And Excel mare Bionic Girl, realise $360,000 when knocked-down to Spicer Thoroughbreds/Noorilim Park Thoroughbreds.
In so doing, the youngster became the second $300,000-plus yearling sold by the Bowness Stud team this sales series following a Starcraft colt consigned at the Sydney Classic Sale. In a development that has been well documented by now, that striking colt was acquired for $340,000 by Carmel Size Racing to do his future racing in Hong Kong.
