We’ve got two NZ’ers heading to Perth after purchasing them at the New Zealand Bloodstock 2yo’s In Training sale last week.
Lot 235 is a filly by Almanzor from Pearls. Almanzor was a 3 time Group 1 winner who won to 2100m at the top level in Europe, and is one of the hottest stallions in NZ with this breeding season fully booked out. Pearls won 3 races to 2200m, and with this filly standing at 16hh, there’s every indication that she could get over a journey. Could she be a possible WA Oaks candidate?
Lot 322 is a gelding by Tavistock from Sweet Dreams Baby. Tavistock has been the Champion stallion in New Zealand and has produced top liners the likes of WERTHER, TARZINO, TAVAGO, JOHNNY GET ANGRY, VOLKSTOCK ‘N’ BARREL and TOFFEE TONGUE. The dam has had 6 to race and all have been winners, including WINDBORNE and DARCI’S DREAM who have both won Stakes races.
Both are nice types by very good stallions, and the pair of them breezed up well in preparation for the sale. They’ll be trained by Grant & Alana Williams (pictured above), and syndication details will be announced shortly.
