A colt by Dundeel topped the first session of the William Inglis Great Southern Sale at Oaklands on Sunday when selling for $250,000.

The bay is closely related to Group I winners Bonneval, St Reims and Champagne and after an opening bid of $100,000 eventually sold to New Zealand-based Alan Fu for $250,000.

The colt was consigned by Glastonbury Farm, Duncan Grimley who described bidding on the colt as 'a feeding frenzy'

"That's a great result, he’s a really nice colt,” Grimley said “Dundeel is just going like a machine at the moment.

“Everybody on the ground was on the horse.

“Expectations would’ve been around $200,000, and he went in with a reserve of $150,000.

“It was like a feeding frenzy up there - there was about seven or eight on him at $200,000."

Earlier in the session Steve and Ceri Jostler went to $240,000 for a colt by Exceed And Excel out of a winning Zabeel half-sister to New Zealand Group I winner Vosne Romanee.
