NZB National Weanlings Day-2: NZ$130k Pins Colt
In New Zealand, NZ Bloodstock as agent (for an unnamed local Kiwi breeder) paid top price of NZ$130,000 for a colt by Waikato Stud's Australian-bred stallion Pins (the 4th foal out of 4-time-winning & stakes-placed 9YO Danehill mare Dane Shakira) during yesterday's 2nd weanling section (lots 301-463 of weanlings catalogued) at the 3-day NZ Bloodstock National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Karaka outside Auckland. The colt was consigned by Shelby Park as agent & his dam Dane Shakira is a full-sister to Gr2-winner Saxon & Gr2-placed Power Of Destiny.
