Australian Bloodstock recently travelled to New Zealand for the Select Weanling Sale and came away very satisfied.
The intention was to go and buy a quality High Chaparral Weanling but upon inspection of the 4 lots on offer the boys hopes where dashed when 3 of them failed to excite as far as types where concerned.
Not to be deterred they called in a few favours and organised a inspection of a High Chaparral Colt that dazzled at a nearby farm. He was immediately purchased and will remain in NZ to be re sold for what hopefully will be a very healthy profit .
Also added to the shopping basket was what we thought on type alone was in the top 2 horses of the sale – a cracking grey colt who we decided prior to him selling that we “go to $50k” to buy him. To our utter disbelief we picked him up for $15k only. Come sale time he is sure to offer a stunning profit all going well.
