Quality Pedigrees Abound at Karaka 2017


Quality Pedigrees Abound at Karaka 2017

Full-brother to G1 winner Lucia Valentina (NZ) (Savabeel) to be offered at Karaka 2017.

New Zealand Bloodstock’s 2017 National Yearling Sales Series at Karaka has impressive depth with a large quantity of siblings and progeny of Group 1 winners.

For the second consecutive year, the National Yearling Sales Series will present a full-sibling to the winner of one of Australia’s richest and most prestigious races. Last year it was a full-brother to the Melbourne Cup winner Prince of Penzance (NZ) (Pentire). In 2017 it will be a full-brother to Lucia Valentina (NZ) (Savabeel), who was a dominant winner of the A$4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) in Sydney in April. That was her third Group 1 win, having previously claimed the Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) and Turnbull Stakes (2000m). The star mare’s full-brother will be offered by Blandford Lodge and will go through the ring as Lot 429.
