Top family does it again
27 Jan 2014A family that has served Hallmark Stud so well was once again to the fore at Karaka on day one of the Premier Sale.
A son of Thorn Park and the broodmare gem Miss Distinction was sold for $310,000 to Cambridge horseman Alex Oliviera.
The colt is a half-brother to 10 winners including Gee I Jane (Gr 1 BTC Cup, Gr 1 Telegraph Handicap) and Miss Jessie Jay (Gr 3 Fayette Park Stakes).
The latter is also the mother of the former champion 3YO Katie Lee (Gr 1 NZ 1000, 2000 Guineas) and Banchee (Gr 1 Diamond Stakes).
Hallmark also sold a Starspangledbanner filly out of a half-sister to the Gr 2 QTC Dup winner Pembleton for $40,000.
