Vincent’s first crop weanlings in demand

29 May 2020

The progeny of Vincent were keenly sought after by buyers at the New Zealand Bloodstock All Age Sale on Wednesday afternoon, with the four-time Group 1 winner achieving a 100% clearance rate and an average price of more than three and a half times his service fee.

Nine weanlings, seven fillies and two colts, sold for an average of $14,333 – the highest for a first season sire and the third highest average overall behind only Art Major and Bettor’s Delight.

Vincent’s top lot, a filly out of Delightful Lover, sold for $26,000 and was purchased by Vincent’s former owner and astute judge of young stock, Jean Feiss. 

Feiss also purchased a daughter of Vincent out of Sheza Monkee, a full sister to triple millionaire Monkey King, for $19,000.

A filly out of the former Group 1 Easter Cup winner Alta Serena also made good money at $23,000.
