Zoustar's Charge Tops Inglis Digital October Online Auction
Media Release - Wednesday October 30

Group 3 winning entire Charge has topped the October (Late) Online Auction, with the son of Zoustar selling to overseas-based buyer HBL for $190,000.

It’s the sixth highest lot in Inglis Digital history and contributed to an overall gross of $1,076,300.

Charge sold for $190,000A winner of the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes at Moonee Valley last year, Charge was offered by Chris Waller Racing in a 122-strong catalogue. “We are very happy with the price” said Chris Waller Racing General Manager Charlie Duckworth.

“We had sourced a few offers prior to the Online Sale but felt that through Inglis Digital, horses reach their true market value.”

“It’s a great facility to have, especially if you are looking to sell just a percentage or the whole horse, as there can be no arguments on whether they got the right price – so it’s not only easy to use but effective,” Duckworth said.

“We wish the new owners and trainer the best of luck with Charge and I am sure he will be a horse who can win plenty more for them.”

Chris Waller Racing’s other lot in the Online Sale, Cormac, bought by CRT Racing for $30,000.

“It’s a good return for the owners but in saying that, Cormac is a horse who is very capable of winning so it’s a good result for all involved,” Duckworth said.

Sam Kavanagh, who is in the process of building up his racing team in the Hunter Valley, went to $100,000 to secure the well-bred Oslo (Pierro x Scandiva), who, while still a maiden, has shown promise on a number of occasions.

“This is my first purchase for the new stable and for me Oslo was a no brainer given he will be qualified for Highway races and the Country Championships as well as being a classy 3YO who is from a pedigree that improves with age.

“He is from the same family as Black Caviar – so it’s an exciting opportunity for people to buy into a horse that they wouldn’t be able to get into as a yearling – plus race a horse on a Saturday in Sydney,” Kavanagh said.

Kavanagh also purchased Livia’s Story (Sepoy) for $14,000 later on in the sale and will be the new trainer of Tchaikovsky, a $100,000 Rob Ferguson purchase from the August (Early) Online Sale.

“Inglis Digital is a great set-up that gives you get the opportunity to buy these types of horses from the colt syndicates that may not make a stallion but are obviously still high-quality stock,” Kavanagh said.
