While all the attention swings to Sydney’s Newmarket sales ground this week for the Australian Easter Yearling Sale, it’s certainly a long way from the end of the stretch with the Easter Broodmare Sale next week (12-14 April) followed by the Melbourne Autumn Yearling Sale on 17-18 April.
Eliza Park will again have a major presence at both with 11 broodmares heading north while 12 youngsters will make their way to Oaklands Junction (available for inspection from Thursday 14 April).
Among the highlights for the Easter Broodmare are:
  • Lot 19: Let’s Rock Again – a G2 winning 2YO and G1 runnerup by Chief’s Crown and dam of Group placed Dehere Again; in foal to Sebring.
  • Lot 48: 4-time winner Mi Piachi, dam of Statue of Liberty 2YO winner Someday Somehow; in foal to Statue of Liberty.
  • Lot 138: Woodman mare Rhianna Louise, dam of recent Group winner Pepperwood and in foal to Denman.
  • Lot 222: 2YO winner and multiple stakes placed Testa Reale; in foal to Commands.
  • Lot 294: Rubiton Group winner Annesong (6 wins); in foal to Magnus.
  • Lot 299: South American Group winner Artist Johanna; in foal to Wanted.
  • Lot 320: Basic Instinct, an Honours List half sister to stakes winner Umaprince (22 wins); in foal to Written Tycoon.
  • Lot 389: Stakes winning 2YO Desert Move with two Magnus colts on the ground and in foal to Bel Esprit.
