NZB Breeze-Up Schedule Available Now

Friday, 17th October 2008

The schedule for the official breeze-ups for the NZ Bloodstock Ready-To-Run Sale of 2YOs (November 18-19) is now available. The 391 breeze-ups (filmed & timed) take place over 200m next Monday & Tuesday (October 20-21) at Waikato Racing Club's Te Rapa track (commencing at 10.30am each day). Among recent catalogue updates:

  • The wins by 3YO colt Sousa (Galileo-Liberty Song, by Last Tycoon) in Australia's Gr3 Newcastle Spring Stakes (1600m) at Broadmeadow & then Gr1 AJC Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick bolstered the pedigree of his half-brother by High Chaparral (offered on account of Rich Hill Stud).
  • The win by 3YO filly Miss Scarlatti (Stravinsky-Crimson, by Zabeel) in Australia's Listed Super Impose Stakes (1800m) at Flemington highlighted her half-brother by One Cool Cat (from Lyndhurst Farm).
  • And the runner-up effort by 7YO gelding Swick (O'Reilly-Crème Anglaise, by Crested Wave) in Australia's Gr2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at Flemington took his earnings to $745,200 & highlighted his half-brother by Scaredee Cat (in the Ellesmere Thoroughbreds draft).
