NZ Weanlings Day-2: $150k High Chaparral Colt
In the New Zealand auction ring, NZ Bloodstock (as agent for regular pin-hookers Mark & Shelley Treweek from Lyndhurst Farm) paid top price of NZ$150,000 for a colt by Coolmore's dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (the 3rd foal out of triple-winning & Gr3-placed 8YO Stravinsky mare Soelin) during the middle session at the 3-day NZ Bloodstock National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Karaka in Auckland. The colt was consigned as part of Northfields Stud's Unreserved Deplenishing Sale & Mark Treweek (who confirmed plans for the colt to feature at the NZ Bloodstock Karaka Yearling Sales next year) commented: "We thought this colt was very much like the High Chaparral colt out of Creil that we sold for NZ$650,000 in the Karaka Premier Sale here this year & we are very pleased to have ended up with him."
