Strong Results at Karaka 2014

Strong Results at Karaka 2014

New Zealand Bloodstock’s 88th National Yearling Sales Series drew to a close yesterday with increases posted across all key statistics as the hammer fell on the final of 1372 yearlings catalogued over six days of selling.

At the completion of Karaka 2014, the combined statistics across the Premier, Select and Festival Sales show consistent strength throughout the week to record an increased average, clearance and median, with 64 fewer horses sold compared to 2013.

The clearance rate of 78% represents a six-year high, and reflects the increase in demand that was evident from the local NZ buying bench throughout the week, supported by a strong international line-up from Australia, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Caledonia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, UK and Western Samoa. The clear middle market strength was also highlighted by the 12.5% increase to the median figure for the entire Sales Series.
