By champion stallion Bettor’s Delight, Brian Christopher (ex Dior Sauvage) is the fourth foal of Kamwood Elsie, making him a brother to former crack filly Lancewood Lizzie who won more than $250,000.

In a spirited bidding duel, Lincoln Farms’ boss John Street snagged the colt for $140,000, the second equal highest price of the day, overpowering top trainer Barry Purdon, who trained Lancewood Lizzie to nine of her 13 wins.

Trainer Ray Green called the colt cheap at the price, expecting that, with all his attributes, he would need to pay at least $200,000 to secure him.

“Everything about him is what I look for in a horse,’’ said Green of the yearling.

“He had a huge front end and a good temperament, I just couldn’t fault him.

“I rated him the best colt in the sale.’’
