Notes:
* Six of the 13 runners offered for sale by public auction were sold at the 2001 New Zealand Ready To Run Sale. Four were sold at the 2001 NZ Select Yearling Sale; two at the NZ Premier Yearling Sale; and five were sold at Australian yearling sales.

*Glyn & Edwina Morris of Wynyard Lodge Stud, Canterbury are represented by two horses, Cheerine Kid and Coup D'Etat - no mean feat for any breeder.

*Gaius, who stands at Ellis Winsloe's Redlo Lodge in Southland, has two Derby contenders from only 14 live foals in 1999. Cheerine Kid and The Big Gainer are also the only two named foals to date from that crop.

*Nine of the 18 runners are by sires whose latest service fees were less than $NZ10,000.

*Only eight are by sires that stood in New Zealand this season; and six were bred in Australia.
