WINX FILLY SETS SALES RING ALIGHTThe first foal of Winx stepped into the sale ring at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale and the daughter of Pierro was later led out with a sale price of $10million lighting up the bid board.The dark bay took everything in and displayed the sort of professional resolve that served her mother so well in a career that spanned 37 wins from 43 starts.Now the most expensive thoroughbred sold at auction in Australia, the filly was consigned by Coolmore as Lot 391 and was led through the ring by Paddy Sheehan, who runs the foaling unit at Coolmore Australia.Foaled and raised at Coolmore for her owners, the filly sparked worldwide interest and while the original intention of the ownership group was to sell to an outside party, one of those owners Debbie Kepitis, decided she and her family could not part with the first born foal of their much loved champion.Winx is currently in foal to Snitzel.
