The Hong Kong Jockey Club purchased an eye-catching Fastnet Rock colt for AU$675,000 (approximately HK$3.755 million) at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney last week.

The youngster is a half-brother to Australian champion sprinter Lankan Rupee. His dam, the G3-winning sprinter Estelle Collection, has also produced the G3-placed Art Collection and the smart four-time winner Inspired Estelle.

Fastnet Rock, a G1-winning sprinter, is a two-time champion sire in Australia with a good level of success in Hong Kong.
