Trans-Tasman trainer Mike Moroney went to $170,000 to secure the top-Lot on Day 2 of Book 2 of New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale, a Proisir filly out of the Northern Meteor mare Polson.

Catalogued as Lot 896, Moroney was keen to secure the filly by the champion sire out of Rich Hill Stud’s draft, drawing physical similarities to a stable star.

“She is very similar to Coeur Volante,” Moroney said.

Coeur Volante was a Group 2 winner during the Melbourne spring carnival before finishing fourth in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield.
