13/02/02 Collingrove's Colt Top of the Crop

The sale topping form of Collingrove Stud has continued in Melbourne with the top priced colt being a member of the stud's quality draft.

Catalogued as lot number 302, the Danehill colt was knocked down the in form Sydney trainer Gary Portelli for $170,000.

The bay colt was from the Silver Jubilee Stakes winning mare Captiva, a daughter of the mighty Sir Tristram.

Captiva's two runners so far are both winners and Portelli was delighted to grab the quality colt, his first ever Danehill purchase.

"He's a typical Danehill type, but not too big, and I like that," Portelli said.

"It's the most expensive horse I've ever bought, and it's a Danehill."

"He's a real racehorse, hopefully we'll be back in Melbourne to win the Premier race next year," Portelli added.

The Melbourne Sale topping colt comes just two weeks since Swettenham Stud provided the highest priced filly in the Premier Yearling Sale at Karaka in New Zealand.
