Inglis Day-3: $300k Rainbow Bubbles
Garry Mudgway (buying on behalf of Victorian-based Lakeview Resources) paid top price of $300,000 for 10-year-old stakes-winning broodmare Rainbow Bubbles (El Moxie-Gayle's Glance, by Bletchingly) during yesterday's opening session of the 3-day Thoroughbred Section at the Inglis June Weanling & Thoroughbred Sale at Oaklands in Melbourne. Rainbow Bubbles (consigned by Woodlawn Park) was sold in foal to Coolmore sire Encosta de Lago. She won 4 races (from 1000-1400m) including the Listed Sandown Park Stakes plus a placing in the Gr1 Coolmore Classic; & she has subsequently produced 3 named foals (1 to race, who is a winner over 1000m). Her own triple-winning dam Gayle's Glance has produced 13 foals (11 to race for 8 winners) including: 7-time winner & $1.1 million earner El Miranda (whose highlights include victories in the Gr1 All-Aged Stakes, Gr3 Gateway Suites Quality, Gr3 Victoria Handicap, Gr3 Tatt's Club Mercedes-Benz Stakes & Listed Ascot Handicap, plus triple Gr2 runner-up & twice 3rd in Gr1 races); & 8-time winner Castlegayle (including 2 Listed races).
