NZB Winter Mixed Sale 1: Gr1-Winner Honor Lap
Also at Sunday's NZB Winter Mixed Sale, Haunui Farm will offer Gr1-winning mare Honor Lap (Honor Grades-President's Pearl, by Conquistarose) in-foal to Pins (sire of 11 stakes-winners this season) & on an unreserved basis. Honor Lap (who won both the Gr1 West Australian Derby & Gr2 WA Oaks, plus placed in 3 other stakes) previously sold for NZ$825,000 (then in-foal to Arrowfield Stud sire Hussonet) at the 2007 NZB May Broodmare Sale as part of dispersal of Henrietta, Duchess Of Bedford's Bloomsbury Stud. Her initial 3 foals to be auctioned have all fetched 6-figures: a colt by Hussonet for $500,000; a half-brother by Zabeel for $525,000; & a filly by Hussonet for $200,000.
