NZB National Yearling Sales Series Bristling With Quality
The 2017 renewal of New Zealand Bloodstock's National Yearling Sales Series returns to Karaka, south of Auckland, from Monday January 30 to Sunday February 5, inclusive. Preceded by Sunday January 29th's elegant Karaka Million twilight meeting at Ellerslie, next year's flagship NZB catalogue is awash with quality bloodstock, including siblings to many household names that have earned Gr1 and/or Champion honours on both sides of the Tasman Sea. Boasting 15 individual winners of 21 Gr1 races last season among its alumni, the National Yearling Sale Series comprises three distinct sessions: the Premier Sale, Select Sale and Festival Sale, each responsible for its own share of elite performers. With the introduction of the $1 million Karaka Million 3YO Classic, every yearling sold at Karaka in 2017 will be eligible to compete for two individual $1 million races.
