South Island Catalogues Available
Catalogues for the New Zealand Bloodstock South Island Sale of 2YOs & Mixed Bloodstock are now available. The Sale is scheduled for Friday August 11 at the Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch. This year's catalogue of 224 horses will feature 190 recently turned 2YOs, as well as yearlings (14), untried horses (2), racehorses (7) and broodmares (11). A range of local and international sires are represented by 2YOs, with over 80 individual sires in total. In a change to the format, this year will see all 2YOs presented in a single session, rather than being split into Select and General Sessions as in previous years. Notable South Island Sale graduates include Hustler, Super Kid, Second Coming, Six Aces, Chestpeak, Happy Gilmour, Heureka, Rosa Marada and Silky Red Boxer.
