The commanding end-to-end win of Allnight Kiss in the $15,000 final of the Sale Graduate Race for two-year-old harness racing fillies at Bathurst on Wednesday night has given the forthcoming Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling Sale a tremendous boost.
Allnight Kiss, a filly by Modern Art, is the second foal out of the Aces N Sevens mare Sheb Ace, whose third foal, a colt by $4-million winner Mister Big, will go under the hammer as Lot 28 at the Bathurst sale.
The first foal, Ultimate Ace, has won three races so far and holds a mark of 1:58.
Only lightly raced, Allnight Kiss was bought for $21,000 by Golgong couple Gary and Marg Meredith at last year’s Bathurst sale.
The Mister Big half-brother to Allnight Kiss is being offered by Wagga breeders Denis and Jo Howe, and is one of only two colts by the world’s richest pacing stallion to be presented at the sale.
The Howe family’s five-prong consignment also includes a Courage Under Fire half-brother to this week’s impressive Cranbourne winner Soho Wonder.
The Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling, comprising 186 lots by 50 different sires, will be held on Sunday, March 23 at the Bathurst Showground.
