Sierra Sue sets 2022 Online Record

Dual Group 1 heroine Sierra Sue (Darci Brahma-Centree, by Centaine) has today become the most expensive horse sold online in Australia this year, realising $1.55m to the bid of Bill Pearce’s Bromfield Park.

Offered unreserved in a bespoke Inglis Digital auction by G1 Bloodstock as agent for the Sierra Sue Syndicate, the Busuttin/Young-trained mare caught the attention of a plethora of bidders before finally selling to Pearce. In doing so, she becomes the second most expensive horse ever sold on Inglis Digital behind Funstar, who realised $2.7m 12 months ago.

Pearce confirmed Sierra Sue would be retired immediately and sent to the breeding barn this upcoming season.

“We’re really thrilled with the acquisition, Ozzie [Kheir], who was a shareholder in the mare, showed some interest in staying in her, we raced [Cox Plate winner] Sir Dragonet and a few others together, and I was very interested in her given she’s a two-time Group 1 winner, so it’s great to have won the battle today,’’ Pearce said.

“I just loved her as a race mare, she was so honest and so talented and if she can bring those traits to her broodmare career, she’s going to produce some magnificent foals. “We’ll sit down together in the next week or so and work out which stallion she’ll go to first up.”
