With the highly anticipated first crop of Cable Bay yearlings already being snapped up by the best trainers in the country, Gilgai Farm will be offering another three lovely representations of the stallion in their Inglis Premier sales draft this March.
Kelly Skillecorn from Gilgai Farm is thrilled with the draft on the whole and is confident that there will be some promising racehorses to come out of the group.
“The draft is a very even group that will all deserve their admirers. They are all very nice, high quality example of their stallions, and I’m looking forward to seeing many of them develop into racehorses and perform well on the track.”
With three Cable Bay yearlings on offer, Skillecorn is excited with the trio, as they are all even-tempered, intelligent and forward horses.
“We couldn’t have hoped for better out of Cable Bay’s first crop. They will be brilliant value for money, and you won’t have to wait long to know if they can gallop, which is different to 90% of stallions.”
“When speaking to Rick Jamieson, as he was very selective and particular with the pedigree of the mares he mated to, and they have turned out to be just what he hoped to breed.”
“They are all very attractive horses and fit into the successful “I Am Invincible” mould, which will perfectly suit the market at the moment. Cable Bay is producing the sort of horse that vendor’s want to sell, and buyer’s want to buy.”
“Even more importantly, the ones that have already sold through the ring and those bought out of the paddocks have ended up in leading stables around the country.”
“They have headed to Anthony Freedman, Danny O’Brien, Mick Price and Mick Kent Jnr and Gai Waterhouse, which will give them every chance to perform to their best. You wouldn’t find a better group of trainers,” Skillecorn said.
Skillecorn describes the three lovely Cable Bay colts Gilgai will offer at this year’s Premier sale.
“Lot 15 the Cable Bay out of the Lohnro mare Ahhhh is a very fine colt. He has a great temperament and is early and forward as you would expect. A straight forward horse to do anything with, he has a mature attitude. His half-sister by Rubick, Masseuse, trained by Maher and Eustace ran a cracking race last start at the Valley, only beaten by a whisker, having been bumped in the straight, and they expect bigger and better things to come.”
“Lot 335 the Cable Bay out of the Listed winning Manhattan Rain mare, Ondina is another similar type, being attractive and straight forward to handle. He is one to jump on board, being a great value colt that will gallop early.”
“Lot 373 the Cable Bay out of the young Lonhro mare Promenades is a flashy, rich bay colt that will turn many heads. Probably the best sales horse of the three, his half-brother by Kermadec made $520,000 at this sale last year, and he will also have plenty of admirers on the complex.”
Inglis Premier Yearling inspections begin on the 25th February at the Oaklands complex with the sale starting on the 1, 2, and 3rd of March. For more information, please contact Kelly Skillecorn at Gilgai Farm on 5794 2132 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
