Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW 50 T THE father and son’s operation is still very much a work in progress, but there is growing confidence as they head toward Karaka 2012. Established in 2007, an ongoing development program at Goodwood continues to perfect the 153ha (380 acre) property, which is home to exciting young stallion Chinese Dragon and a broodmare band of up to 50. “Our main focus is on quality and we’ve probably bought a dozen mares out of Australia in the past four years as well as K1 mares here and a couple from America,” William Fell said. “ It’s a long process to build up a good broodmare band and we’re now starting to see the benefits of that here.” Goodwood will present a 21 strong consignment to Karaka and will sell through all three divisions, with five youngsters in the Premier Sale. “ The Pentire colt out of Just Peaches is an outstanding individual with plenty of quality and a great mover and would probably be the star of the draft,” Fell said. A multiple winner by Howbaddouwantit, the dam is a half-sister to the Hong Kong Queen Mother’s Cup-Gr.2 winner Ho Ho and a grandaughter of the top class mare Daisy, who in turn produced the WATC Australian Derby-Gr.1 winner Key Dancer. “ We’ve got a lovely Pins colt out of Teasing Georgia who is from the family of Starcraft. He’s a really good type and a typical Pins.” The youngster’s dam is a winning mare by Peintre Celebre and a half-sister to stakes winner Gwendolyn, with Taras Bulba another high profile member of the family. “ The High Chaparral colt is a cracking type and he’s a close relative of Nom Du Jeu.” The stud has an ownership interest in that AJC Derby-Gr.1 winner, as well as Zabeel, his son Savabeel, Keeper, Iffraaj, Alamosa and Per Incanto. Also featuring in the Premier team is a pair of Savabeel youngsters with outstanding credentials. The filly received a classic boost during the GOODWOOD STUD Focus on quality mares The results of Goodwood Stud’s policy of sourcing quality broodmares from within New Zealand and further afield is starting to reap the rewards for the Palmerston North farm of Rex and William Fell. VENDORS Goodwood will present a 21 strong consignment to Karaka and will sell through all three divisions, with five youngsters in the Premier Sale.
