The younger half-sister of Black Caviar, the unbeaten galloper, was sold for $2.6 million in Sydney at the Inglis Sales Complex on Wednesday.
The Chief Executive Officer of BC3 Thoroughbreds, Bill Vlahos, won the bid against the biggest breeder of Japan Katsumi Yoshida for the half-sister of Black Caviar. Renowned trainer Danny O’Brien has been announced to train her in the future. The bidding for filly started off with a price of $1 million and shot up to $1.5 million within the next second, followed by a few bids of $100,000 which were given by one of the Japanese buyers’ agent who was speaking on the telephone and raising his bid accordingly. Further bidding for filly did not take long as the bidding price had moved up to $2 million within one minute of the start of the bid. After quite a few raises in the price of filly for $100,000 between the Japanese buyer and Vlahos, Vlahos sealed the deal at $2.6 million.
The bidding for half-sister of the Black Caviar was complete within 2 minutes and 28 seconds with 13 bids only, marking that the filly was to remain within Australia. She will be immediately taken to Vlahos property and trained there for the coming years.
