The Stakes Performed racemare High Class (Shocking) changed hands in a deal negotiated by Adrian Clark on behalf of a New Zealand-based client.
High Class – a brilliant debut winner at two years and Listed Race-placed in the Soliloquy Stakes at three years – has been immediately retired and will head to Australia at the start of next week for a mating with Australia’s red-hot Second Season stallion All Too Hard.
“High Class is a horse who has been on my radar from the day she first went to the races,” said Clark this afternoon.
“She was hardy & talented and her mother has produced some lovely types; I have no doubt this mare has a big future at stud.”
High Class was bred by Nearco Stud Limited and sold for $30,000 as a yearling through Curraghmore's 2014 NZB Select draft when purchased by Cypress Point Farms. -Adrian Clark, blog
