Heatherly For Sale
Tara Madgwick - Saturday, 4 March 2017
Entered for the newly created Inglis Chairman's Sale Session II for Elite Breeding Prospects next month at Newmarket, Lonhro mare Heatherly added another win to her resume when taking out the Listed VRC ATA Bob Hoysted Handicap at Flemington on Saturday.

Heatherly - Grant CourtneyBeaten just two lengths by Terravista in the Group I VRC Lightning Stakes at her first run back from a spell, the Matt Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained mare hit top form to win the 1000 metre dash by a length and three-quarters.

A $90,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Broadwater Farm draft for Inglis as agent, Heatherly runs for Barry and Midge Griffiths and has won six of 14 starts earning just shy of $600,000 in prizemoney.

Already a Group II winner and Group I placed, Heatherly heads to Sydney not just for the Chairman's Sale, but also for the Group I ATC The Galaxy (1100m).

She is one of 66 stakes-winners for Darley's champion sire Lonhro, who was the leading sire at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale by average.

Heatherly is the lone winner from unraced Dancing Heather, a Danzero half-sister to Group I winner Linton.

Dancing Heather produced a colt foal by Written Tycoon last year and was then covered again by Lonhro.
