Eliza Park Living Legends Auction Online
Victoria's Eliza Park is again staging its annual online auction to provide much needed funds for Living Legends, the International Home of Rest for Champion Horses. In the past three years the online auction has raised over $250,000, and this spring the stallions on offer are perennial Champion Victorian Sire, Bel Esprit, Statue Of Liberty (sire of brilliant sprinter Hay List), Champion Victorian 1st Season Sire, Magnus, Shinzig (sire of boom 3YO Psychic Mick), Astronomer Royal and Sharkbite – whose first crop yearlings averaged many times their respective service fees, plus stakes-producer God's Own and the Champion 2YO Bushranger, whose first foals "sold through the roof in Europe earlier this year". Finally, a highly popular addition to the ranks in 2012 is Black Caviar's full-brother Moshe "who has aroused considerable interest" since his retirement to stud earlier this year. Tenders can be submitted by visiting www.elizapark.com.au/online_auction.html up until 2pm this Friday (31 August), with the winners announced online at 3pm. The latest edition of Breeding&Racing Magazine, due out early September, includes an in-depth article on Living Legends, the International Home of Rest for Champion Horses.
