What great strides Tyreel Stud has made under the management of the Monds family, the renowned Hawkesbury Valley property continuing to churn out the winners, a tradition set by the late Jim Fleming.
Great racetrack and sales results are a Tyreel trademark and those looking for a future winner come Inglis Classic time must take heed of the stud’s select draft by a range of proven and younger stallions.
“Our 2020 Inglis Classic draft is a very exciting one offering buyers the opportunity to purchase a diverse range of horses from a small select draft,” Linda Monds said. “Boasting proven crosses that have produced elite racehorses, they are most importantly a strong physical group of yearlings; all a must see during early inspections.”
Stud manager Robert Sims takes us through the draft…
Lot 74 bay filly by Choisir from Condolences (by Street Cry): “an attractive, strong filly possessing quality and substance,” she is the first foal for a half-sister to the triple Group One winner Maldivian (W.S Cox Plate, 2040m, C.F Orr Stakes, 1400m, Caulfield Stakes, 2000m) and to the dam of the Group Two winner Adrift (Light Fingers Stakes, 1200m) and the Karaka Million winner Imperial Win. Her reliably classy sire, himself a graduate of this sale, is nearing a milestone having sired 96 stakes winners.

Third and fourth dams are the big race winners Dizelle (AJC Oaks-Gr.1, 2400m) and Danelagh (Blue Diamond Stakes-Gr.1, 1200m winning dam of the Hong Kong star Vengeance Of Rain).
