Brazen Beau's amazing career soared to fresh heights with a record breaking performance at this week's Inglis Sale in Melbourne.
The Oaklands Junction sale belonged to Brazen Beau from the outset when Lot 4 a colt by Brazen Beau sold to Hong Kong for $800,000, the highest priced ever paid for a yearling by Brazen Beau.
Consigned by Bhima Thoroughbreds, on behalf of client David Gillies, the colt is a son of Up In Lights and was purchased by Paul King of Orbis Bloodstock.
Brazen Beau ended the first two days at Oaklands as leading stallion with 17 lots sold for a total of $4,850,000. The next highest aggregate was achieved by Written Tycoon with his 24 sales amassing $3,680,000.
Even for Grant Morgan from Ontrack Thoroughbreds who is officially Brazen Beau's Number One fan, but the sale results were an eye opener.
"The results being recorded by Brazen Beau at this summer's sales are incredible," said Grant Morgan, who bought Brazen Beau from the 2013 Inglis Classic Sale for $70,000.
"Ontrack has always had faith that Brazen Beau would make the grade at stud and we bought four of his yearlings last year and they are all nice horses and heading in the right direction.
"Buoyed by what these horses are showing and the success of his first crop on the racetrack we purchased another three yearlings at the January Magic Millions Sale.
"That has proved to be the right move because the prices paid for Brazen Beau yearlings have gone through the roof at the Inglis Classic and Melbourne Sales. He set a Classic Sale record with his $550,000 colt and now raises the bar.
"Yesterday, as well as the top priced colt for $800,000, he was the story of the day as some of his yearling prices were $575,000, $560,000, $450,000, $420,000 and $380,000.
"That sort of success for a second season stallion tells us that the market is not only rapt with the results his first runners have achieved, but there's some unraced horses pleasing their connections waiting in the wings.
"We are just enjoying this latest chapter in his story and can't wait for our own Brazen Beau horses to get to the races," said Grant Morgan.
