Final thought 

If Shoals' brother, who topped the final day of the Inglis Australian Yearling Sale on Wednesday, possesses the same ability as his elder sibling, he is sure to be an attractive stallion prospect for the future. 

The ownership syndicate involved with this colt has yet to be confirmed but it would be no surprise if the major players in the Australian industry take a slice of the action so they do not miss out if this colt goes on to become a superstar.
