2017 NZB Premier Sale- Day Two
31 Jan 2017

Trelawney presented 13 yearlings for auction on the second day of the NZB Premier session and had a successful day selling with ten signed for by the end of the day.

The first to go under the hammer was the High Chaparral x Lady of The House filly consigned on behalf of Raffles Dancers.  Out of a half-sister to dual Group One winner Descarado, the nice bodied filly made $120,000 when sold to the partnership of Horse Feng Bloodstock and Mr Y Niu and Mr F Niu.

Next to go through was the Redoute’s Choice colt out of stakes winning Thorn Park mare Magic Briar.  The stock of Redoute’s Choice are highly sought after and this colt was no exception going to Sun Bloodstock, formerly known as Eliza Park International for $150,000.

The home-bred filly by Ocean Park out of Petit Verdot was a horse Brent Taylor rated during the preparation.  A feminine type from a successful family, not only does she look like she will run but will have good residual value. 

Astute bloodstock agent Bruce Perry went to $100,000 to secure the Petit Verdot and she is one the farm will be keeping tabs on to follow her progress.

Perry also secured the Ocean Park x Queen Cha Cha colt when outlaying $260,000 for the three-quarter brother to dual Group One winner Suavito (Thorn Park).

Another family familiar around Trelawney is that of lot 354, the Tavistock x Procure colt.  Procure is the dam of Group Two winner Hips Don’t Lie (Stravinsky) and the stakes placed Azevedo, Acquired, and Procurement.  This colt will be heading across the ditch to join the stable of Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra after they went to $200,000 to add him to their lineup.

Lot 376, the Reliable Man colt out of Royal Prize was knocked down to Guy Mulcaster for $250,000.  This is a half to Group Two winner Saavoya (Savabeel) and Group Three winner Duchess Kate (Savabeel).

Nice Savabeel colts were selling well and the one out of Silk Pins continued the trend.  The second foal for stakes placed Silk Pins made $200,00 when sold to Hong Kong’s Peter Ho.  Ho's biggest successes to date have come in the Champions & Chater Cup thanks to Packing Winner and Mr Medici. The latter was crowned Champion Stayer for 2009/10.

The ShamExpress x Stella Livia colt was easily a stand out of the draft not only having the page but the looks to turn heads.  New South Wales based Kieran Moore went to $260,000 to secure the colt and in doing so the equal top-priced lot of the draft.

Trelawney’s final Premier Lot to enter the ring was the Ocean Park x The Iffraaj Dame colt.  He will go to a successful combination with Champion Thoroughbreds and Lindsay Park Racing purchasing him for $115,000.

The farm ranked as fifth top farm by aggregate, coming out with an average of $148,529 which was over that of the sale.

Brent, Cherry and the team would like to thank all those who consigned their horses through the farm, and all those who purchased from the draft and wish everyone the best of luck.  Trelawney’s NZB graduates have an outstanding record and there is every chance the 2017 edition holds another Group One winner.
