Karaka To Offer Ocean Park Half-Brother
As the NZ industry takes a current stranglehold on the Gr1 Cox Plate, having bred 5 of the past 6 winners, New Zealand Bloodstock has announced that "the Karaka Premier Sale will feature a half-brother [by Pins] to [Gr1 Cox Plate winner] Ocean Park [Thorn Park-Sayyida, by Zabeel]", reports breednet.com.au. The colt will be offered by Trelawney Stud, and Brent Taylor commented: "Ocean Park's dam Sayyida throws lovely types ... Having Ocean Park make $150,000 in the 2010 Select Sale and then Lady Sayyida top the Sale the following year is a testament to that, and the Pins colt is very much in that mould, he's a lovely type ... He is progressing nicely towards the Sale. He's a strong, balanced colt and is a really good moving horse as well so we are very happy with him."
