Phil Kennard - Kennard Bloodstock
"I've been on this Muscle Hill campaign and I think he's the greatest trotting stallion that I have seen so to buy one at $100,000 [Lot 127] from Breckon Farms was a great thrill," commented Phil Kennard of PI and GJ Kennard Bloodstock who also secured Shard Farm Standardbreds Lot 280 for $100,000.
John Street - Lincoln Farms Bloodstock
"With NZB picking it up now [standardbred sales], they're very professional at what they do," commented Lincoln Farm's John Street. "We got every horse we wanted so we were very, very lucky... They'll be going into some of our partnerhsips, but of course we won't partner them until they are two-year-olds."
Greg Hope - Canterbury Trainer
“We’ve got a Love You filly at home that we are in raptures about and we couldn’t resist having a full blood brother to that,” commented leading buyer Greg Hope who secured the top-priced yearling in Lot 192, King Of Love.
