$330,000 for the beautifully bred Marscay mare La Mambo during the Winter Carnival
Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast this afternoon.
under the Faripast Pty Ltd banner, the mare was actually sold to another client who wished

Akhenaton, Camerena, Marstic, La Baraka, Yippyio, Arkady and Lady Marion.

in turn the dam of Group One winning Kiwi galloper Hero.

was sold for $330,000. She was in foal to Danehill's Golden Slipper winning son Flying
Spur, one of Australia's most promising young sires.
Closely related to the stakes winners Sale of Century,
Super Natural, Bayremah, Top of the Pops, Marscay Boy, Westminster and Veloso, the mare
was catalogued as lot number 414.
