Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
T TEN years ago it was Rob McAnulty who signed for St Reims out of Cambridge Stud's draft for $NZ1m. The son of Zabeel and the American bred mare l'Quiz won 11 races and his 'take no prisoners' style of racing made him a popular figure. His front running pattern earned him victories in the New Zealand Derby-Gr.1 and appropriately in the Zabeel Classic- Gr.1 . There was no surprise at all that a daughter of Zabeel and the Eight Carat family should realise six figures when Gooree Stud went to $NZ1,450,000 for Shower of Roses. She added further lustre to the family record in Australia when she won the Storm Queen Stakes-Gr.1 . Gallic, a $NZ170,000 purchase, proved to be another high class graduate for Zabeel with his Sydney Cup-Gr.1 success. A pair of Pentire daughters proved outstanding value too, with Penny Gem selling for $NZ70,000 to Paul Moroney, whose expert eye has kept him in top flight winners for many years, and she went on to claim the Captain Cook Stakes-Gr.1 . Recurring, a $NZ40,000 buy, was a grand example of her stallion's versatility when the Australian-trained mare returned to New Zealand to claim the Railway Handicap-Gr.1 . Hong Kong Mile-Gr.1 winner The Duke was a $NZ200,000 purchase from the sale, while Perlin, who won both the Underwood Stakes-Gr.1 and the Doomben Cup-Gr.1, was a snip at $NZ85,000 for leviathan Melbourne owner Lloyd Williams. The following year saw the glittering careers of two international performers launched. The Garry Chittick-bred Starcraft was purchased by GRADUATES SHINE AROUND THE GLOBE Graduates of New Zealand Bloodstock's National Yearling Sale have made their mark from Ellerslie to Longchamp, Randwick to Royal Ascot, Caulfield to Clairwood and Kranji through to Sha Tin. Wave upon wave of Gr.1 winners have emerged from the auction during the past decade and the talent scouts will again converge on Karaka in 2012 to sign up their next star player.
