Bhima’s sales success continued a few weeks after leaving the Gold Coast when all 17 of their Inglis
Classic offerings sold for a 100 percent clearance rate.
The results were topped by Lot 102, the only Snitzel filly offered in the sale. Purchased by Jadeskye
Racing and Brad Widdup Racing for $370,000, the filly from a half-sister to Group 1 winner He’s No Pie
Eater, Racing Nadine, ended Day 1 as the session topper and was the highest priced filly sold throughout
the five days at Riverside Stables.

Scissor Kick half-sister to Group 3 placed High Mist at Lot 521. Secured by Triple Crown Syndications for
$140,000, the filly is a granddaughter of Group 2 winner Lady Mulan. She became the second most
expensive of all Scissor Kick yearlings sold in 2019 when bringing only $10,000 less than his highest.
