Bluebloods : Feb 2011 Issue - Sale Previews
LITTLE HILLS PASTORAL has given undivided support to its home state auction with the stud's best ever draft to be presented at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale at Morphettville on March 15-16 when 393 lots will be offered over two sessions. "There's always a really good buyer base from all over Australia so we really back it, and we've got a lovely group of horses to sell," Christine Tucker said of the stud's draft of 12. "Our love of horses began in our childhood years. We both rode and took part in riding at shows, gymkhanas, hunting and stock work. In 1967 we developed an Arabian Horse Stud. This eventually fostered our interest in endurance riding and three day eventing. We have several notable successes here and overseas in these fields. In 1984 we began breeding thoroughbreds in a small way. In 1989 we moved from the mid north of South Australia to the limestone fields and equitable climate of Yorke Peninsula in an attempt to produce well grown athletic sound horses. We would like to think that in a small way we have succeeded in this endeavour." Little Hills will present a dozen of the best at the sale with the first entrant a daughter of Hussonet's Gr.1- winning son Host and the stakes placed Alzao mare Jewel of Oakbank, who has produced six winners. "She's a neat type and a correct package," Christine said. The stud's Not A Single Doubt colt is a half-brother to a multiple winner out of the Dolphin Street mare Marmalade Miss, herself a daughter of Widden Stakes- LR heroine Whilodge (Biscay). "He's very typical of his sire and from a good running family." High hopes are also held for the grey Dash For Cash colt out of Petrella (Mukaddamah), the winner of six races, while his dam is a half-sister to Gr.3 winner and Gr.1 placed Algonquin Club. "He's one of the best by Dash For Cash you'll see, and is very well balanced." The son of Snippetson is out of the Geiger Counter mare Relativity, who won five races and whose dam Western Zip won the WATC Gimcrack Stakes-LR, and the Barely A Moment colt from multiple winner Round Lake (Mustin Lake) is a half-brother to the Group performer Fox Lake. "He's a big, scopey individual and very correct." A daughter of Beautiful Crown is out of Autumn Romp (Strategic), a half-sister to Little Hills graduate Fappiano's Son, the stakes winner of four races, and the son of Magic Albert is out of the winning Catbird mare Birdlady. "He's an awesome type and another very strong, correct individual." The filly by Gr.1 winner and successful sire Good Journey out of the Kenny's Best Pal mare Brave Accord is a half-sister to a multiple winner and expected to make waves in the ring. "We sold her half-brother by Domesday last year for $56,000 and this is a lovely filly and typical of the family," Christine said. Following her into the ring as Lot 175 is a daughter of Excites out of Brave Deed (Mustin Lake), who boasts a perfect record at stud as all three of her foals to race are winners. The stud's third successive lot into the ring is another colt by Chilean Champion 2YO and subsequent US Gr.1 winner Host and from a strong international family. He is out of the winning Scenic mare Bright Bead, while Magic Albert's son (ex Dominita by Perugino) is a brother to the winner and stakes performed Princess Joy and his dam is a half-sister to Listed winner Sky Bullet. "He's an absolute ripper," Christine said. A half-brother to three winners by Gone West's fast son Mugharreb and from the Listed winner Tape Deck (Provideo) completes the draft and this yearling is described as "a correct and professional colt".
