Countdown to auction day begins
23 Jan 2017

Trelawney Stud’s 2017 NZB draft have begun to arrive on the Karaka complex and are settling into their new surroundings with parades to begin on Wednesday morning. 

The 21 Premier yearlings and 13 Select have been well received during the on-farm inspections and have peaked  for their date in the auction ring next week.

Represented in the Premier draft are New Zealand-based stallions Savabeel, O’Reilly, Tavistock, Pins, ShamExpress, Reliable Man, and Ocean Park, while Australian sires Redoute’s Choice High Chaparral, Sebring, Medaglia D’Oro, Dundeel and Epaulette also feature.

Brent Taylor identifies a couple of standouts in Lot 431, the ShamExpress x Stella Livia colt (pictured) who is a very athletic colt with great balance, he looks like a real runner and is a half to the exciting Australian Group One place Spieth.

Another highlight is Lot 334, the Ocean Park x Petit Verdot.  “She represents what I like to see in a filly; quality, feminine type, athletic movement, scope for development and depth of pedigree.  This filly has it all,” Taylor said.

The draft is located in barn E and any enquires can be directed to Brent on 021 949 644 or  Alternatively Brent and Cherry will both be on the complex and welcome any past, present or potential clients to join them in Trelawney’s hospitality tent for a refreshment and bite to eat.
