Three Bridges Star at Chairman’s Sale
Leading Victorian stud Three Bridges Thoroughbreds was active as both a buyer and vendor at the top end of the market at the inaugural Inglis Chairman’s Sale on Friday evening.
Three Bridges bought the sale-topper Provocative through our bloodstock agent Paul Willetts Bloodstock for $1.2million and offered the second-top priced lot Don’t Doubt Mamma which was sold to Arrowfield for $1.1million. Peter Liston was thrilled on both accounts.
"We sold a princess and bought a queen,'' Liston said.
"Provocative is a young Group 1-winning Zabeel mare on its first foal (by Tavistock) and we think over her life she'll be one of the foundation mares of our stud and hopefully our success going forward.
"And Don't Doubt Mamma was a great result for our clients and I'm so pleased for them that they got the price they were after and they entrusted us with achieving that for them.
"The longer we've been here at Newmarket this week, the more confident we'd become that she might have made the million dollars but to make over it is fantastic.''
