Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
whose half-sister was the highly talented but ill-fated Queensland Derby- Gr.1 placegetter Heidilicious. She was a $NZ160,000 buy from Beltana’s 2009 draft, and in 2012 Rutherford will offer her half-sister. “She’s a magnificent filly with beautiful balance. Heidilicious caused a bit of heartache as she really looked the goods, but that’s just racing.” His Zabeel-Kerkira colt made $NZ420,000 earlier this year. The other daughter of O’Reilly on offer is out of the home-bred Volksraad mare Volkrose. “She’s a nice, lengthy type and a really good racey sort. The mare hasn’t had any to race yet but Danny O’Brien has got a couple of her colts and I kept her first foal by Pentire for myself.” Volkrose’s dam is a half-sister to Affinity and at stud produced the White Robe Lodge Handicap-Gr.3 winner O’Reilly Rose. The youngster out of Danadevi, a Sydney sale purchase, boasts an impressive pedigree and is described as a medium sized colt and very correct. His Danehill mother is a sister to the Champion Australian Two and Three Year Old and Golden Slipper-Gr.1 and Flight Stakes-Gr.1 winner Ha Ha. It is also the stallion family of another Golden Slipper winner in Rory’s Jester. The final member of the O’Reilly quartet is the son of Shemiyra, another mare sourced from Europe. “ He is an absolutely outstanding colt and Stephen Gray bought (for $NZ420,000) his brother who’s gone up to Singapore and he really likes him,” Rutherford said. By In the Wings, Shemiyra is a half-sister to three French stakes winners including Shemima (Chantilly Prix Allez France-Gr.3, Prix de Lutece).” ■ BELTANA STUD NZ Premier 2011 results Offered: 3 Sold: 3 Average: $213,333 Top Price: $420,000 , Zabeel-Kerkira colt, M Racing, Auckland Parnassus, Canterbury Contact: Richard Rutherford (64) 274 321 026 Phone: (64) 3 319 2889 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW KARAKA 2012 37 13 Bay Filly O'Reilly x Volkrose 139 Bay Colt O'Reilly x Danadevi (AUS) 268 Brown Filly O'Reilly x Kerkira (IRE) 433 Brown Colt O'Reilly x Shemiyra (IRE) KARAKA 2012 DRAFT PREMIER DRAFT Beltana will offer a quartet of yearlings by champion sire O’Reilly at Karaka in 2012. “I’m obviously a big fan, and he leaves lovely types of horses.
