03/04/02 Easter 2002: Mystery Buyer Grabs Sunday Silence Filly
A mystery buyer purchasing under the Planet Trading banner has added his name to the Sunday Silence story at the Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney tonight.

The man, who refused to reveal his name, paid $575,000 for a filly by the champion Japanese sire to become the top priced lot of the auction.

The winning buyer was understood to be John Lever, although neither he or Inglis' Managing Director Reg Inglis were willing to provide further details.

"The buyer of the Sunday Silence filly tonight doesn't want to be known," Inglis told the press tonight.

Offered by Arrowfield Stud bidding for the filly kicked off at $200,000 and rose in $50,000 amounts to $550,000 before a final $25,000 bid was received.

The filly, catalogued as lot number 268, was the third yearling by Sunday Silence to be sold at Australia's leading yearling sale.

Yesterday a colt by the super sire was knocked down for a current sales topping price of $1.2 million.
