Bluebloods : Karaka 2015 Yearling Sale Preview
VENDORS 28 THERE should be even more success around the corner judging by the quality of Westbury’s Karaka yearlings. A highlight of the draft is a group of youngsters from the first crop of well credentialled young stallion Redwood (GB) (High Chaparral (IRE)- Arum Lily by Woodman (USA)). A high class galloper who raced out of stakes company only once in a 17-start career, Redwood amassed more than $2.3m on the track. A Gr.1 winner of the Northern Dancer Stakes on turf at Woodbine, Redwood raced with distinction in five countries, also winning the Glorious Stakes- Gr.3 at Goodwood and the Listed Feilden Stakes at Newmarket. Also a gallant second in the Dubai Sheema Classic-Gr.1 and in the Hong Kong Vase- Gr.1, Redwood proved high class, tough and adaptable. A four-time winner who placed on a further seven occasions, Redwood met and defeated the likes of Manighar, Glass Harmonium and My Kingdom of Fife, and they all won at the highest level in Australia. An especially handsome stallion, he is built in the mould of his highly successful sire High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells), a stallion who has excelled in Australasia more than anywhere. To add to his appeal, Redwood is, like another leading stallion in More Than Ready, the son of a Woodman mare. He hails from an outstanding family as his dam is a daughter of the French Champion Three Year-Old Jolypha (Lyphard), a sister to the superstar Dancing Brave, while his fourth dam Olmec is a daughter of 1963 Golden Slipper winner and sire success Pago Pago (Matrice). Redwood has proved popular with breeders in New Zealand and cove red 106 mares in his first season. Westbury’s Russell Warwick is looking forward to seeing the first yearlings go through the ring at Karaka. “Bred and raced by Juddmo nte Farm, Redwood was a quality performer who has impressed us with the types he is siring,” he said. Westbury’s Karaka-bound colts by Redwood include a half-brother (Lot 235) to the dual Gr.2 winner Sound Journey; a son of a city-winning half- sister to the Gr.3 winners Full of Spirit and Lady Cumquat (Lot 584); a son of a half-sister to the dual Gr.1 winner Sirmione (Lot 644); a grandson of the Gr.1 winner Penny Gem (Lot 981); and a son of a juvenile-winning sister to the Listed winner Bonnie Mac (Lot 983). He is also well represented by nicely bred fillies including a half-sister to the stakes placed Gold Medals (Lot 467); a daughter of the Gr.3 placed Marsh Harbour (Lot 521); a half-sister to the tough dual Gr.3 winner McClintock (Lot 678); a grandaugh- ter of the Listed winner Langness, whose dam is the Gr.1 sprinter Isca (Lot 686); and the daughter of a sister to the 1000 Guineas heroine Inaflury (Lot 849). Other Westbury youngsters likely to attract attention include 15 yearlings, 10 in the Premier Session, by Westbury resident Makfi (GB) (Dubawi (IRE)-Dhelaal by Green Desert), a triple Gr.1 winner who was recently represented by his first stakes winner when his son Cornwallville was successful in a Listed event in France in mid-November. Westbury’s Karaka Premier lots by Makfi include a filly out of a half-sister to talented three year-old Chivalry (Lot 105); a half-sister to the dual Listed- winning juvenile Military Rose (Lot 165); and the second foal of the stakes placed Fledgling (Lot 390). Fellow Westbury stallion, the Australian bred Oakleigh Plate-Gr.1 winner Swiss Ace (Secret Savings (USA)-Rapid Serve (USA) by Carson City), has made an encouraging start to his stud career with 10 individual winners in his first crop, and his Karaka colts include a relation to Black Caviar. Westbury will also take the progeny of Red Giant, Captain Rio, Postponed, Savabeel,Sebring, Pins, High Chaparral, Smart Missile, Starcraft, Beneteau and Onemorenomore to Karaka.
