Little Avondale's Per Incanto Stock In Demand
At yesterday’s opening session of Book 2 at the 2018 NZB National Yearling Sales Series at Karaka, proven Gr1 sire Per Incanto (Street Cry-Pappa Reale, by Indian Ridge) got off to a cracking start with Highden Park presenting the highest-priced yearling (Lot 885), which went to the $200,000 bid of Upper Bloodstock. With 14 yearlings sold thus far from Book 2 at an average of $63,036, Per Incanto is third on the leading sires by average table (with three or more sold) but leads by aggregate with receipts totalling $882,500. Little Avondale Stud principal Sam Williams was pleased with their resident stallion. “He has had an absolutely massive sale so far,” he said. “He had Lanciato win a stakes race in Australia just 24 hours before the sale started which was just gold. That really reinforced to the Australian buyers that he is a serious horse they should be looking at.” Per Incanto had 12 yearling sale in Book 1 at an average of $159,583.
