Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW 60 T THE good times continue to roll at Sam and Catriona Williams’ Masterton farm with another successful year to reflect on. “ The proof is always in the pudding and that’s on the racetrack for us and we’ve had a terrific past 12 months,” Sam Williams said. Farm graduates have been regular stars and none more so than the Brisbane Cup-Gr.2 winner and Caulfield Cup-Gr.1 placegetter Tullamore. By Savabeel out of the Flying Spur mare Trocair, Tullamore was a member of Little Avondale’s 2008 Select Sale team. “ He was passed in at $55,000 and subsequently sold and he’s now one of 17 Gr.1 performers that have been bred, reared or sold by us in the past 10 years.” Little Avondale’s principals certainly haven’t been resting on their laurels though with the acquisition of a new stallion to serve alongside the proven Towkay (AUS) (Last Tycoon (IRE)-Princess Tracy (IRE) by Ahonoora) and Zabeel’s regally-bred son Zed (NZ) (Zabeel-Emerald Dream (AUS0 by Danehill (USA)). “ We reinvested with Per Incanto and bought a horse by Street Cry, who has worked so well in Australia, with plenty of speed,” Williams said. By Machiavellian, Street Cry (IRE) won five races with his career highlight a victory in the Dubai World Cup-Gr.1, and he has made a flying start to his stud career. Shocking (Australian Cup, Melbourne Cup), Whobegotyou LITTLE AVONDALE A major serving of optimism Feature racetrack success, a new stallion welcomed with open arms by breeders, and a stellar line up of yearlings to present at Karaka in 2012 have Little Avondale Stud looking ahead with a major serving of optimism. VENDORS “I would have to put the quality of this draft right up there with four years ago when we had our best sale ever.” Brisbane Cup winner Tullamore M.K.
