The catalogue for the 2019 Karaka May Sale has been bolstered by three supplementary entries – a weanling and two broodmares to be offered at the end of each session they are catalogued in.
Westbury Stud have added a fifth weanling to their May Sale draft in Lot 241– a filly from the first crop of their Victoria Derby-winning stallion Tarzino. The filly is out of Cabal (NZ) (Carnegie), a half-sister to the multiple Group 1 winner Second Coming (NZ) (Oak Ridge). Cabal is the dam of four winners from five foals to race.
The other two supplementary entries are broodmares being offered by Brighthill Farm.
The first of them is Spiritual (NZ) (Savabeel) catalogued as Lot 242. One of only two Savabeel broodmares in the May Sale catalogue, Spiritual is out of a Flying Spur mare who is half-sister to the five-time Australian Group 1 winner Eremein (Timber Country).
Brighthill’s other supplementary entry is Lot 243 Twin Soul (Singspiel), a three-race winner who was fourth in three Listed races. Twin Soul’s dam is a half-sister to the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free winner Right Approach (Machiavellian). This is also the family of Hong Kong champion stayer Privilege (Last Tycoon).
The 243-lot May Sale catalogue has been streamlined into one day of selling on May 17, brimming with pinhooking, breeding and investment opportunities.
The yearling session at the Karaka May Sale is your last opportunity in 2019 to secure a yearling eligible to enter the lucrative Karaka Million Series.
The Sale will begin with Lot 1 at 10am, following the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Racing Winston Peter’s address at 9.45am. -NZB
