Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
County. “ The stallion Sufficient, Magic Cape (NZ 2000 Guineas-Gr.1) and Descarado (Caulfield Cup-Gr.1, Caulfield Stakes-Gr.1) have all got the Mapperley brand on their shoulder as well,” Davison said. “ In the past six years there have been nine Gr.1 winners who have all been raised, reared and educated here. The rolling hills of Mapperley give young horses a head start when it comes to their strength and athleticism. The property has always been a provider of top class horses.” The 2012 National Yearling Sales will also mark the first time Mapperley has offered its own Premier and Select Sale drafts. “ Previously it’s been under the Windsor Park banner and last year we prepared 19 for K1 and 10 in K2 and this time we will be offering 12 in Premier and 19 in the Select, all of which have been reared at Mapperley Stud. There’s a great selection of colts and fillies in the top sale from Group-performed mares and I’m sure they’re going to sell very well. A number of them are from mares whose yearlings have previously sold for good money and I believe the drafts to be even better this time.” The Premier line up will feature progeny of High Chaparral, Thorn Park, Red Ransom, O’Reilly and Guillotine, while the Select draft boasts High Chaparral, Thorn Park, Guillotine, O’Reilly, No Excuse Needed, Brilliance, Fast ’N‘ Famous, Choisir, Falkirk and Volksraad yearlings. “ It’s a quality draft and the best for K2 for a long time,” Davison said. “ There are some lovely types from some really nice families.” Mapperley has also been busy in recent years at sales, buying both young and breeding stock. “ We’ve got a number of client-based broodmares and about 30 of our own. I bought five or six mares in foal at the broodmare sales this year and when I was playing rugby I was able to buy three or four fillies each year at the yearling sales to race and then go into the broodmare band.” Mapperley has a racing team of up to eight in work, including Thorn Park’s daughter Thorn Star, who followed up a debut second with a recent victory. She is out of the Volksraad mare Monica Hall and from the proven family of Golden Sword and Falkirk. “ We also raced Due Diligence who won the Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic-Gr.2 and unfortunately she broke down when favourite for the Oaks-Gr.1 . She’s just had a nice Mastercraftsman filly.” New fencing and the establishment of a new foaling unit have recently been completed under Mapperley’s ongoing development program. “ The place looks top notch and my main goal is to maintain our remarkable record for producing top horses and really put Mapperley on the map in its own right,” Davison said. ■ MAPPERLEY STUD www.mapperleystud.co.nz 107 Matai Road, RD 2 , Matamata Contact: Simms Davison (64) 21 607 853 Ph: (64) 7 888 8044 Email: email@example.com .nz KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW KARAKA 2012 63 38 Bay Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Alberton Princess 39 Chestnut Filly Thorn Park (AUS) x Alberton Star 131 Bay Filly Red Ransom (USA) x Crepe de Chine 137 Bay Colt High Chaparral (IRE) x D'Accord 140 Bay Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x Danbelle 226 Bay Filly Thorn Park (AUS) x Granma Gertey (AUS) 252 Bay Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x Irlanda 300 Bay Colt High Chaparral (IRE) x Luminary 327 Bay Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x Miss Golly 333 Bay Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x Missraad 359 Bay Filly O'Reilly x One Love 489 Grey Colt Guillotine x Thee Auld Hussie 497 Bay Colt O'Reilly x Thunderchine (AUS) 552 Bay Filly No Excuse Needed (GB) x Zink 556 Bay Colt Guillotine x Admiration 565 Bay Colt Guillotine x Alleyrun 609 Bay Filly Thorn Park (AUS) x Bremer Bay (AUS) 629 Bay Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Centapin 638 Bay Filly Fast 'n' Famous (AUS) x Chilled Out 692 Chestnut Filly Choisir (AUS) x Donna Rosita 695 Bay Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Dosh 743 Chestnut Colt No Excuse Needed (GB) x Forty Two Below 775 Bay Colt Falkirk x Guinevere (IRE) 791 Chestnut Colt Thorn Park (AUS) x Imco Main (ITY) 914 Bay Filly Falkirk x Monte Karlo 933 Bay Colt Volksraad (GB) x No Lane Bridge 934 Bay Filly High Chaparral (IRE) x No Porsche Needed 971 Bay Filly Volksraad (GB) x Plaza Doree (FR) 989 Chestnut Filly Thorn Park (AUS) x Quinpool (USA) 990 Brown Filly Volksraad (GB) x Rapida 1005 Chestnut Colt Brilliance (USA) x Romanee Heights 1029 Bay Filly O'Reilly x Scenic Sprint (AUS) KARAKA 2012 DRAFT PREMIER DRAFT SELECT DRAFT “In the past six years there have been nine Gr.1 winners who have all been raised, reared and educated here.
