The market is going to love him.” Brighthill will also present a three-quarter sister by High Chaparral to Tavistock (Waikato Draught Sprint-Gr.1, Mudgway Partsworld Sprint- Gr.1). “She’s a lovely, rangey filly and she’s going to have them flocking to the door. We’ve also got a Zabeel out of Arena Pride who is a cracking colt and we sold his brother earlier this year for $NZ250,000, plus a brother to Eskimo Queen (Coolmore Classic-Gr.1, Queensland Oaks-Gr.1) who is a terrific staying type of horse.” The latter is by Shinko King from the winning Icelandic mare Cold Type, who hails from the family of the top-flight sprinter Krispin Klear, while Arena Pride is an unraced half-sister by Nassipour to Bazelle (Zabeel) and has produced four winners, including the Group performer The Wolverine. A daughter of Keeper completes the Premier party and she is a half-sister to the Rich Hill Stud Mile-Gr.2 winner Cog Hill, who also placed in the Stradbroke Handicap-Gr.1 and Mudgway Partsworld Stakes-Gr.1 . They are out of the winning Straight Strike mare Regal Flight and this family also features the Futurity Stakes-Gr.1 winner Ark Regal. Brighthill’s Select Sale draft will feature a strong line of Perfectly Ready youngsters as well as representatives of Iffraaj, Al Maher, Any Given Saturday, Thorn Park, Keeper, Lucky Unicorn, Viking Ruler and Sakhee’s Secret. “Such a strong mix of leading stallions is really positive and even in the current times we are reasonably buillish.” Perfectly Ready’s associate sire Patapan (USA) (Stravinsky (USA)-Pappa Reale by Indian Ridge) has made a highly encouraging start to his career that augurs well for the sales. He produced his first winner during the New Zealand Cup carnival when his son Napatap, bred by Brighthill Farm, ran away with the Welcome Stakes-LR . Brighthill sold Napatap through the 2010 Karaka Festival Sale. “ He’s got some lovely horses in K3 and he’s showed he can leave precocious types, and with the richest race in the country a two year-old bonus race, he has the right sort of product for the market,” King said. “ He won six two year-old races himself and his progeny are displaying that precocious gene already.” The third member of the Brighthill trio is Rock of Gibraltar’s son Eagle Mountain (ex Masskana by Darshaan), who capped an outstanding international career with victory in the Hong Kong Cup-Gr.1. “ His first foals are on the ground and he’s left some really good types,” King added. ■ T.D.
