A previously passed in lot has become the new sales topper for the Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne which concluded tonight.

After being originally passed in for $145,000 the grey filly by Desert Sun (pictured above) was sold late in the day in a private sale to Sydney based buyer Frank Tagg.

Tagg paid $175,000 for the filly, who is a half sister to four stakes winners including the former smart performer Scandinavia.

Offered by leading local stud Eliza Park, the Super Vobis qualified filly was catalogued as lot number 190.

Earlier in the final of two sessions two yearlings were both knocked down for $170,000.

A filly by Encosta de Lago from Aerate was sold to leading Canberra trainer John Morissey, while the top priced colt was the only Danehill youngster in the sale, from the stakes winner Captiva. The latter was sold to Gary Portelli.

The sale recorded an average price close to $3,000 higher than last year and delighted William Inglis' Managing Director, Reg Inglis.

"It's been a great sale and it's a credit to vendors for offering such good drafts over the past two days," he said.
