Wednesday, 18th November 2009

In New Zealand, Hong Kong-based businessman Johnny Ng paid top price of NZ$400,000 for a colt by Bertolini (the 3rd foal out of unraced 9YO Ebony Grosve mare Ebony Pearl) at yesterday’s NZB Ready-To-Run Sale of 2YOs at Karaka in Auckland. The colt was consigned by Lyndhurst Farm & HK bloodstock agent Willie Leung (speaking on behalf of the new owner) commented: “We were drawn to him as he's precocious & has a beautiful action. He's also very well educated, being prepared by Lyndhurst Farm. He will go to Cambridge until July or August 2010 before he goes up to race in HK.”
