Am really looking forward to this sale, and with any luck might be able to secure 5 or 10% shares in one or two.

Just re the newbies:

. Thought Merchant Navy and Russian Revolution have been soft in the marketplace so far, so is there a bargain or two to be had at Oaklands?  Have marked three down.
. A couple by the UK/NZ shuttler Time Test yearlings look interesting.
. And believe there's a few nice Impending lots also.

Over to others.

Well it seems...

Anyway I've emailed six trainers expressing interest in five particular yearlings should they be the successful bidders.  The office/marketing personnel of three have thus far responded to my correspondence.

I haven't even had a chance to look at this sale yet!  It's been getting stronger over the last few years but still a good one for finding value.

Thanks ladies.

Furious, have a look at Lot 307 from the 2020 MM Adelaide catalogue (Frosted - Gloray), and compare her female family with the above fellow.  The Adelaide filly sold for just $18,000 and we were quick to buy a 10% share in her.  I really believe, given Frosted's early success, that if offered today she would have brought $150,000.

VSP, you'll very very nearly the first person to know when the colt is ready to go off.  Wink

Griffiths/De K pay $180k for Lot 203.  No black type in the first two removes and just one NZ Listed winner in the third.

Just one example of more than a few inexplicable purchases imo.

Griffiths trains for the breeder and the auctioneer said the horse has had colic last week (pretty sure this was the one).
Breeder will probably buy back in you'd think.

Lot 244.  Running family but not a single stakes horse in the first three removes, and yet they run it up before passing in for $190k. 

So totally predictable, though in truth someone will probably pay the required $200k.

Hasn't stopped him leading the Sires list (so far, hes got i'm all the talk and kermadec on his hammer) for the 2nd Year,  recall a few anxious people back a few years ago with So You Think, as well, 2nd season blues i reckon

change is simply a destination on a journey reached by taking the first step (i said that) lol

Imo (and apparently others) disappointing based on opportunity thus far mate, and at $44k a serve in 2018 vendors are hurting big time at Premier.

That he's leading the 2nd Year sires list is no real biggie because his AEI is way below the three immediately below him, as his stakes-winners to runners ratio.

Needs a headliner sooner rather than later.

I put a cracking Pride of Dubai colt in my Stable last year in the comp. Hawkes bought him for good money at Easter at 290K, but i thought he was well worth it.

His name is now Saif and he won narrowly but well at Ballarat on debut. He is in the VRC Sires this Saturday. Big ask, but who knows, this may be the horse that the market seems to think POD needs.

Wasn't interested in Lot 256 with no black type until the 3rd remove but had another look after it was bought by Danny O'Brien for $200k.

And saw the 1st dam was by Savabeel, the 2nd by Pins, the 3rd by O'Reilly and the 4th by Centaine.  How textbook NZ can you get?!

Then saw he was line bred top and bottom to successful sire and broodmare sires Snippets and Success Express.

Will follow this fellow with interest

Don't ever ask me for price valuations on yearlings as it's clearly not my go LOL
A poster on FB asked for opininions on possible reasonably priced staying types, so I did a fleeting glance thru' till I started seeing crosseyed LOL
I do love the Xtravagant filly with the huge overstride but unless B/rat can turn things around, very much doubt she'll reach her potential in that stable Cry

The X - She's a Danica (not djebel's photo) was clearly well received, as the sire is about as popular as a pork chop in a...  The one I'm referring to, and presume Gay also, is black with two whites in front.

Shows how much I know, as I thought she had an in and out walk and was all over the place in the pasterns.  Embarrassed
