Just a note that the yearling sale Catalogues are up for NZ Bloodstock, Magic Millions and Inglis Classic sales.
 
There will be 2 comps again next year - same rules as this year.
 
2017 Yearling Comp - spend $1mllion on a maximum of 6 yearling s across all sales
 
2017 Bargain Comp - 3 yearlings (2 primary and 1 reserve) at $20k and under.
 
Please don't post any picks as yet - I will open the threads after Christmas.
 
Good luck.

Only starting to look but lot 4 is double Juliet with Sovereign Edition to boot.  If he looks anything he'll probably have to go in.

Haha... I skipped ahead with her - had looked through All Too Hard's breeding record and checked to see if she was at the sale. Would like to be that far ahead!!

I'm around the 600 mark but that's just on the initial cull - will have to go back through all of the first shortlist and see if the pedigrees are of any interest!

That said... can't tell if she's a little back at the knee on the off-fore... they've made it tricky with the shadows...

Really I knocked out a Stratum from the Classic Sale which I originally had put in so I could put in an I am Invincible (which has won but is very weak).  The Stratum was only $9K so very cheap and I decided might have big problems.  2 starts and 2 wins later!

This Magic Millions sale is too hard to go through.  Too many I like so to hard to knock back to one or two!  I now know why I stuck to the other comps.  Better that they are combined but so many horses!  All shapes and sized.  Some lovely and some weird pedigrees.  Some interesting combinations some just thrown together.  Honestly going through the lot is giving me a major head ache.  And like Beliskner my picks will come in later anyway.

Three first season sires throwing the types I like so far are Dundeel, Sizzling and Spirit of Boom.  After the last few years of First Season Sires not coming up early it will be interesting to see what prices any of the first season sires get.  Some nice types for most of them but some hits and misses also.

I've done that every other year Furious! Trying to come up with a formula to narrow it down a lot quicker and hopefully be more precise... will wait and see if any of them are any good. 

Did stray on the I Am Invincible - but I think it will be made up for being its in the gold riband or whatever section of the sale with the million dollar slipper bonus...

That's probably right from the 1000+ at the MM I've got about 70 marked to look into.  But to get down to one - thats proving very hard!  Price and sale ring antics will knock alot out.  I know they'll go overs just on pedigree and photo.  But who knows.  They might fail their xrays.
