I'll kick it off then, with an initial spend rather more than I'd hoped.

MM Lot 582.  Bay colt by I Am Invincible from You're Discreet.  Sold for $350k to the China Horse Club.

Knock out anything going to South Africa though.  It's just not worth it.

One went for 60k the other 170k, I have another 8-9 picked out at Karaka though so I will need to see what they go for before I decide my final 6. There is a High Chaparral filly at Karaka that has me most excited about a baby for a while.

Guys, to clarify chit-chat from selection posts, could you please highlight the selection posts e.g. bold or colours, to make it easier for Dizzy to find? Smile
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

All good Delta Deel, I started this, so I will wear the endless digging through the thread to find the picks....

I check out the overseas winnings (transfered into Aussie dollars) a few times a year and let Dizzy know.  She usually has to remind me!

Campaspe good luck with the Dayita she from the Juliet female line.  More a dour type so will be interesting if the speed works with her.

MM Lot 366 Hinchinbrook - Red Centre $120k
Sold to Stanley Chin so may well end up in Macau

MM Lot 606 Lonhro - Adeline $300k
Sold to Gai Waterhouse  Dead

Lot 834 Lope De Vega - Raindane $70k
Likely heading to Kim Waugh

Thats nearly half of my $1m spent.  Probably spend the other half at Inglis

.....or invest in the stockmarket or buy some property.  Would be much smarter than blowing it on yearlings.  Tongue

Hi all, I've been forming syndicates in yearlings with family and many friends every year since i was 18yo. A long time ago. Mostly fairly/very cheap.

Been with a handful of trainers(mostly friends) over that long period and usually attend sales with them. Had numerous city winners, many slow ones that got nowhere, and many in between.

Anyway, it's always been a dream to have a Million to take to the sales and spend on half a dozen dream makers, so i thought i'd join and have a go here. I've been reading the breeding/racing section of this blog for years without joining. Thanks dizzy, furious and others for the Comp.

I'll kick off with 1 from MM

Good luck Vivarchi.  It's all fun and Beliskner has the bragging rights as he put a Derby winner in his stable a couple of seasons ago.
