Savabeel again stole the show on the third day of the 2019 Karaka Yearling Sale with the four highest priced lots through the ring on Tuesday.
Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock went to $800,000 to secure Lot 388, Pencarrow Stud’s Savabeel filly out of the Stakes-winning Galileo mare Scintillula.
Only minutes later, Hawthorne paid $400,000 for Lot 390, a Tavistock filly out of star Group 1 mare Seachange.
After paying $1.4 million for a Savabeel colt on Monday, Te Akau Racing’s David Ellis went to $775,000 to secure Lot 445, the Savabeel colt out of dual Group 1 winner Suavito that was offered by Waikato Stud.
And Lot 362, a Savabeel filly out of a three-quarter sister to Sacred Falls, was purchased by GC Beemsterboer for $525,000.
Book 1 of the sale will conclude on Wednesday.
