Mare Sets Victorian Record In Australia

Danevade, the dual group-placed full sister to Shania Dane and Scintillation, set a broodmare record for the Australian state of Victoria when she brought Aust$1,050,000 during the opening session of the William Inglis & Son August Thoroughbred mixed auction in Melbourne Aug. 14.

A late entry into the sale, Danevade (Danehill -- Subterfuge, by Machiavellian) was offered by Riverend Park and D’Arcy Thoroughbreds and was purchased by Victorian breeder Morning Rise Stud. She will head straight to Coolmore Stud for a mating with Encosta De Lago, who has been the stallion of choice for Danevade’s dam Subterfuge and Shania Dane in recent years.

"A mare of this caliber is always going to be highly sought after this close to the breeding season and brought a figure that her pedigree demanded,” Inglis director Peter Heagney said.
