Catalogues for New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sales Series in March are now online.
The sale has been pushed back from its long-standing late-January slot and will now be held at Karaka from Monday 7 to Wednesday to Saturday 12 March.
A total of 1103 yearlings are set to go through the ring during the six-day sale, including an exceptional line-up of 636 yearlings showcased in the Book 1 session.
The catalogues host 30 siblings to Group One winners, plus the progeny of 99 stakes-winning mares including 10 at the elite level.
New Zealand Bloodstock’s graduates have continued to perform on the global stage. In the last six years alone, there have been 141 Group One victories recorded by 83 individual Group One stars sourced from NZB Sales.
Just last season, Karaka graduates won 32 Group One races and scored a total of 108 black-type successes.
On average, New Zealand-bred horses earned 56 percent more than Australian-breds during the 2020-21 season in Australia, and won 24.3 percent of Group One races in Australia from 7.3 percent of runners.
New Zealand Bloodstock graduates claimed four consecutive Hong Kong Derbys, with Sky Darci victorious in the 2021 edition, cementing Karaka as the number one source of winners.
For the second year, buyers who are unable to physically attend the Sale will be able to participate via New Zealand Bloodstock’s user-friendly online bidding platform.
New Zealand-based agents are also available to complete inspections on behalf of international buyers at on farm parades and at the iconic Karaka Sales Centre.
