New Zealand has again proven to be a happy hunting ground for Eliza Park with three of its yearlings proving popular with buyers at Karaka last week.
Although only taking across a small draft, the Exceed And Excel filly from Baltics – closely related to Black Caviar – was snapped up by Darley Australia for $300,000 while, in the Select Session, the God’s Own colt from Sky Watch was purchased locally for $40,000.
Perhaps the highlight though was the Northern Meteor colt from Espuela which was corralled by Tony Pike Bloodstock for $160,000.
The colt was originally bought as a weanling last June for $40,000 and has managed to quadruple the investment in a tick over six months … you don’t get that kind of interest from a bank!
Below are Bruno Cannatelli’s photos of the Northern Meteor colt.
