The 8 year old boy who may have bought the bargain filly of the Easter Sale!! You have to read this.

Something very unusual happened two hours into the sale yesterday. A chinese family from Hong Kong who had pre-registered for online bidding were sitting in the sale ring enjoying the atmosphere of the sale. The family were keen to buy a horse or two during their visit. As lot 59 came into the ring, an 8 year old boy had control of the family iPad and accidently bid using the online service - securing lot 59 for $50,000. Whether the young lad was enticed to bid by the filly's family, which includes HK Group 1 winner Inspiration and other recent HK Group 2 winner Admiration - or whether the young lad clicked the bid button because he liked what her saw in the ring is unknown. What we do know is that the 8 year old boy loves horses racing, studies pedigrees and has some knowledge of Australian racing. His father is happy to keep the filly, and has followed his son's advice and given her to Peter Moody to train - as the young boy has been impressed with how well Peter has trained Black Caviar. Lets hope she is a star of the track - what a great story.
