The Karaka yearling sales start on Monday and it is a very exciting time of year. We love it.
It is where we have bought horses like Ruud Awakening, Prince Mambo and Mighty Solomon. We have had great success buying here.
We have been busy inspecting yearlings with our trainers since prior to Christmas and are in the process of drawing up shortlists of the horses we wish to buy. We will again be looking to buy a range of yearlings from the Premier and Select sales, from early two-year-olds that can win the Karaka Million to three-year-old Guineas horses and staying types that can win Oaks, Derbies and Cup races. We will also be buying horses for Singapore and Australia.
We will be buying both colts and fillies and will buy the horses over a wide price range.
After each day of the sales there will be a report sent out with details on the horses we have purchased and this will give everyone an opportunity to view our purchases and potentially take shares in them. There will also be a report sent out giving a rundown of the sales each day and our opinion on the strength of the market, what is fashionable and the quality of the horses being sold. We are compiling a list of people who wish to receive our daily updates from the sales, so please contact either Matt or Albert if you would like to receive these.
Last year six of the horses we purchased were sold out within a day of buying them, so for those of you that are interested in being added to the list, it is important that you let Albert or Matt know and they will ensure youu receive these each morning. The first update will come out next Tuesday, the morning after the first day of the Premier Sale.
It is an exciting week and we can’t wait for it to begin!
