Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
Per Incanto Sharvasti - dam of lot 432 (Caulfield Guineas, Yalumba Stakes) and Predatory Pricer (Liston Stakes) have been among his finest in the southern hemisphere, while his northern hemisphere stars include the champion mare Zenyatta and Street Sense, who is the only horse to complete the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Kentucky Derby double. Per Incanto (USA) (Ex Pappa Reale by Indian Ridge) won six of his 13 European starts, including the Premio Tudini-Gr.3 in which he blazed over 1200m in 1.08 .6 to defeat a field that numbered eight individual Group performers. Williams said the stallion would serve between 140 and 150 mares in his first season. “ We had anticipated he might get to 120 but with his looks and speed he sold himself and he’s priced at $NZ4000 where everybody can have a crack.” Little Avondale’s confidence is further boosted by its Karaka prospects with a lineup rated most favourably with the consignment that achieved the stud’s best results. “ I would have to put the quality of this draft right up there with four years ago when we had our best sale ever,” Sam Williams said. The farm sold 10 Premier lots in 2007 for $NZ2,390,000, with a top price of $NZ700,000 for a filly by Redoute’s Choice out of the Rory’s Jester mare Foxtrot. “One of our headline acts will be the colt by Thorn Park out of Sharvasti, a mare we bought into, who is one of only two Gr.1 -winning mares by Montjeu.” Sharvasti is a daughter of the star racemare Vedodara who is represented in the party by an Alamosa filly. “ There wouldn’t be many better bred fillies going through the sale ring,” Williams added. He is also delighted with a quartet of Darci Brahma’s sons. “ We’ve got a lovely selection with four outstanding colts in the Premier Sale and they are like peas in a pod, but the pick of them may be the one out of Trigon Lass, while the half-sister to Bart Cummings’ Shuswap is another lovely type. The Towkay colt is very powerful and will appeal to traders and the Hong Kong market as he’s a half-brother to the Gr.1 performer More Bountiful.” Williams also has high hopes for a half-sister by Pentire to the Captain Cook Stakes-Gr.1 winner Ekstreme. Two youngsters in the Select Sale draft were singled out for particular mention. “ The pick of them would probably be the Towkay out of Dancing Daze who was a Gr.2 winner, and he’s a real quality colt. The other one I’m really excited about is by Zed out of Maria’s Story, who is a half-sister to Natalie Wood, the dam of Maluckyday. He’s an absolute ripper of a colt.” Little Avondale will also present yearlings by Savabeel, Pins, O’Reilly, Fast ‘N ’ Famous and High Chaparral at Karaka. ■ LITTLE AVONDALE STUD www.lastud.co.nz NZ Premier 2011 results Offered: 13 Sold: 9 Average: $173,889 Top Price: $350,000 , General Nediym-Generous Nature filly, S Brem, NSW Morris Rd, RD6, Masterton Contact: Sam Williams (64) 274 853 400 Catriona Williams (64) 274 818 108 Phone: (64) 6 377 5098 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org .nz KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW KARAKA 2012 61 5 Brown Filly Alamosa x Vedodara 15 Bay/Brown Colt Pins (AUS) x Wait a Minute 16 Bay Colt Darci Brahma x Wake Up Suzie 105 Bay Filly Pentire (GB) x Cashcade 110 Bay/Brown Colt Towkay (AUS) x Centaine Gu Li 121 Brown Colt Savabeel (AUS) x Clermont Rose 135 Brown Filly Pentire (GB) x Cruz Control 336 Bay Colt Darci Brahma x Monashees (AUS) 355 Black Colt Savabeel (AUS) x Oenotria 392 Brown Colt Darci Brahma x Rapid Kay 401 Brown Filly Pins (AUS) x Rivertaine 410 Bay/Brown Filly Stravinsky (USA) x Royal Kiss (IRE) 432 Bay Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Sharvasti 504 Brown Colt Darci Brahma x Trigon Lass 542 Bay Colt Towkay (AUS) x Zalass 557 Bay Colt Darci Brahma x Affinity 635 Brown Filly Towkay (AUS) x Chatto Creek 665 Bay Colt Towkay (AUS) x Dancing Daze 706 Brown Colt Savabeel (AUS) x Eighty Twenty 798 Bay or Brown Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Interdict (AUS) 804 Brown Colt Towkay (AUS) x Jabeske 824 Brown Filly Savabeel (AUS) x Kincia 855 Brown Colt O'Reilly x La Serenissime (IRE) 887 Bay Colt Zed x Maria's Story 907 Bay Colt Darci Brahma x Miss Moneytree 932 Bay or Brown Colt Pentire (GB) x Nikki's Bride 1007 Brown Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x Romantic Liaisons 1058 Chestnut Colt Towkay (AUS) x Soneri 1064 Bay Colt Fast 'n' Famous (AUS) x Southern Belle 1110 Bay Filly Alamosa x Tender Poison (AUS) KARAKA 2012 DRAFT PREMIER DRAFT SELECT DRAFT T.D .
