War Colt Tops Melbourne 2YO Sale

The War colt sold to Hong Kong interests for $420,000 in Melbourne on Wednesday may start his racing career in Australia.

David Lui, of Sweetbriar Equine, bought the colt from Crevasse at the annual sale of ready to race two-year-olds at Oaklands Junction.

His vendor Brian Jenkins of Uppergumtree Farm had paid $155,000 for the colt as a yearling earlier this year.


Lui said the horse would remain in Australia before any decision was made whether he would race in Hong Kong.

“We’ll give him some time and assess him and then we’ll decide what to do. We’re not in a rush to push the horse,’’ Lui said.

“War is a new sire but the yearling price of this colt was $155,000 so you are expecting to pay a good price for it.

“He’s very well built, he looks good and walks good and has a beautiful head. Everything made him a standout of the sale.’’

Yu Long Investments was the leading buyer by both aggregate ($534,000) and average ($133,500) for three or more lots purchased.

Leading vendor by average was Blake Ryan, with all four of his juveniles selling at an average of $110,000.

The sale average was just under $70,000
