New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Weanling Sale is now live, with the quality 82-lot catalogue available to view on Gavelhouse Plus.
Bidding on the weanling only sale launched on Thursday and will run for an 11-day period, with the first lot closing on Sunday 21 June at 3pm.
While the sale may be new, New Zealand Bloodstock weanling graduates are no strangers to success, having recorded nine Group One wins and 81 stakes wins in the last six seasons, headlined by recent Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m) winner Jennifer Eccles, a $5,000 weanling purchase in 2017.
The line-up includes progeny by leading sires such as Savabeel, Darci Brahma, Ocean Park and Tavistock, and for the first time buyers will get the opportunity to secure lots by freshman sires Almanzor and Time Test.
The catalogue includes an index of siblings to Group One winners including Lot 39 (Sacred Falls x Tiptoes), a half-brother to Gr.1 Herbie Dyke Stakes (2000m) winner Tiptronic, as well as Lot 10 (Belardo x Midnight Breaker), a half-brother to 2015 Karaka Million 2YO (1200m) victor Hardline.
Weanlings offered in the Sale are also eligible to enter in the Karaka Million Series featuring two $1 million races available for graduates as two and three-year-olds, plus the $100,000 CollinsonForex Karaka Cup (2200m), for the duration of their career.
Vendors have supplied extensive photos and video footage to give prospective buyers the best possible information about each lot on offer.
Bloodstock inspections for the sale will consist of parades scheduled by New Zealand Bloodstock and buyers can also contact vendors to arrange their own on private viewings.
Buyers must register on Gavelhouse Plus in advance in order to gain bidding approval.
