NZB RTR Sale 1: Update After Weekend Racing
The weekend victory by 4YO mare Bella Valentina (Pins-Roaring Meg, by Centaine) in the Listed Durbridge Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in Adelaide provided a timely pedigree update for her full-sister catalogued for next month's NZ Bloodstock Ready-To-Run Sale (November 18-19). The filly (lot 193) was purchased at this year's Karaka Select Sale for NZ$80,000 & will be offered by Challenge Thoroughbreds in the Ready-To-Run Sale. (She is set to appear in the pre-sale breeze-up sessions today). Bella Valentina (a NZ$125,000 yearling at the 2006 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) now has 3 wins & 5 placings (including June's Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic over 1350m at Ipswich & January's NZ Gr3 Desert Gold Stakes over 1600m at Trentham) from 16 starts for $110,224 earnings.
