Ina Canta (Per Incanto-One Keen Lass by Canny Lad) made a winning debut in the two-year-old event at Trentham on Monday and in doing so highlighted his full brother (pictured left) who is LOT 575 in our Karaka Select Sale draft.

Per Incanto has now left five individual winners from eight starters and will be represented by Bella Court (Per Incanto-Belle Chantecler by Redoute’s Choice) and the LA bred Dal Cielo (Per Incanto-Cent From Heaven by Centaine) in this Sunday’s Karaka Million.

Bred by star jockey James McDonald, Bella Court was a $37,000 purchase by her trainer Lisa Latta from the 2014 Karaka Festival Sale.
Currently New Zealand’s leading first season sire on winners to runners, Per Incanto (Street Cry-Pappa Reale by Indian Ridge) has 11 yearlings catalogued for this year’s Karaka Sales which commence with the Premier session on 26 January. LA has his only Premier entry, an outstanding half sister to triple group 1 winner Viadana (Towkay-Yeah Nah by Kinjite), which is LOT 236, two in the Select Sale and one in the Festival.
