Cambridge Stud’s annual reduction process has started with a quality line up in the latest 74 Lot gavelhouse.com auction.
“Every year we reduce our broodmare numbers to make way for the fillies coming in from our racing team,” said the farm’s Sales and Nominations Manager Scott Calder.
“This year we are offering several mares with foals at foot including two with colts by our headline sire Almanzor.”
“The mare and foal packages are a great opportunity to not only buy a well credentialed mare but also seek a quick return with the foals if people wish.”
“The foals have all been handled by FoalNZ so a lot hard work has already been done.”
