Karaka Yearling Sales 2020
The yearling tour was fantastic and we where especially thrilled to meet many of the happy characters of New Zealand breeding and racing.
Procedure – view the type which might be going under the radar price-wise, x-factor mojo appeal and should run.
Where physical type shows correct, then there is good reason beneath: the collective nick strains, rather than only sire – how the type comes through & has an unsuspecting quality. i.e. a very handy colt which took strong appeal, family of Miss Disco line. Whose Miss Disco ? she is the dam of Bold Ruler, sire of Secretariat.
Exceptional Criteria placed on balance & walk, with (at best) no physical defects and genuine. For myself – they either appeal or they don’t and they tick the box.
(Race cafe readers) *IMO quality ‘specs’ are plainly slipping away from New Zealand ownership because of a failing interest IN towards genotype pedigrees. The Ready to Run 2019 which TBL prior selected where Lots 40, 17, 163, 79, 170, 73, 362 with 4 bonus selections.
Commentary to above selections: the Sacred Falls colt where his dam maternal family is same to Te Akau Shark. However the key to SF is Iguazu’s Girl inbred back to Century, a racehorse and great sire from the Djebel/Tourbillon male line. F.Y.I Djebel is the hard-rock ‘gene’ of them all.
Of the Shocking filly to why Shocking, Winx, Vegas Dancer and Zenyetta (Street Cry) all have in common is the favourable strain to a #12 female family (Roberto, Success Express/Hold Your Peace) to what the Shocking filly-lot, had in 3x Roberto doses.
The Roberto line is synonymous with producing tough, classy racehorses.
It is worth noting that in-breeding to Roberto has produced a number of top class G1 winners. The Irish bred Snow Fairy (2010 Cartier champion 3 year old filly , the international performing Planteur (Danehill Dancer), 2010 Cartier Champion European Stayer Rite of Passage (Giants Causeway) and USA performer – Silver Max.
A filly from the great global conduit La-Troienne family which is classic plus; the breeding proposition unfailing.….(refer to my latest blog Storm the Court and California Chrome, them are patterns.
