Brighthill Farm "Bullish" On Pin-hook Opportunities
With the NZ Bloodstock National Weanling Sale due next week (May 2) at Karaka, leading consignors Brighthill Farm believe there are "genuine pin-hook opportunities" to be found among their draft of weanlings. According to Brighthill principals Nic & Ane-marie King, the farm has a "terrific cross-section of sires represented & the majority of our horses have have had x-rays done." Among the 13 weanlings consigned by Brighthill are colts & fillies by Benicio, Guillotine, High Chaparral, Iffraaj (2), Keeper, No Excuse Needed, Patapan (2), Perfectly Ready (2), Thorn Park & Towkay. Although reluctant to single out any weanlings from what "is a great consignment across the board", Nick King commented: "The High Chaparral half-brother to Double Barrell (Lot 125) is a star & I have no doubt buyers will be impressed with the 2 Iffraaj colts (Lots 3 & 265)."
