NZB Standardbred Enters Uncharted Territory

Monday, February 17, 2020

Day One of NZB Standardbred’s second ever National Standardbred Yearling Sale kicked off at Karaka on Monday, with record-breaking results rounding out the Auckland Sale. 

Lot 122 (Captaintreacherous), a $250,000 purchase from Tardina Stud. 

The Sale broke records today after four Lots sold for in excess of $200,000, with the median increasing on last year’s results closing at $36,250.

NZB Director and Operations Manager James Jennings was thrilled with the outcome of the results on Day One held at Karaka.

“The average is on par with last year and an increased median shows good depth to the Sale.

“There were pleasing results for a number of vendors, highlighting that the buyers were prepared to pay for quality yearlings.

“We are very happy with the momentum of the Sale so far and look forward to it carrying through to Christchurch over the next two days,” commented Jennings.

The highlight of the session was Lot 122 (Captaintreacherous), a bay colt purchased for $250,000 by Emilio and Mary Rosati from Tardina Stud’s draft.

Leading the buying bench at Auckland was Lincoln Farms Bloodstock, securing six yearlings for a total spend of $597,500. Included in John Street's purchases were two colts, Lots 49 and 63 for $210,000 and $200,000 respectively, both were from the draft of Woodlands Stud.

The fourth $200,000 purchase was Lot 113, a brown colt from Georgia Brooke Lodge secured by Jean Feiss.  

Second on the leading buyers list was Stonewall Stud, purchasing 11 horses for an aggregate of $587,500.

The leading vendor by aggregate were 2019’s title holders Woodlands Stud, selling 34 yearlings of their 36 offered for a total of $1,648,500.
