    LAST Sunday’s Karaka Sale in New Zealand provided plenty of food for thought for the upcoming Nutrien Sydney Yearling Sale.

    For the second successive year the top-priced lot was a filly by Captaintreacherous – $270,000 this year and $300,000 last year.

    Captaintreacherous was the Leading Sire by Average (three or more sold) ahead of Bettors Delight and Captaintreacherous’s son Captain Crunch. All three averaged more than $60,000.

    There are eight yearlings in the Sydney Sale by Captaintreacherous and five of them are fillies. Three of the five are out of New Zealand mares so you don’t need to head to New Zealand to access their bloodlines.

    Two of the three Kiwis are bred on the same cross that produced the unbeaten Millwood Nike p,2,1:52.7 $690,932 and the third is bred on the same cross as the Australian bred duo, Tough Tilly p,1:51.1 $618,333 and Jewel Melody p,3,1:51.2 $487,128.

    There are seven yearlings in Nutrien’s Sydney Yearling Sale by Bettors Delight with four fillies and three colts.

    Captain Crunch has 12 yearlings on offer in Sydney with seven fillies and five colts to go under the hammer.

    All the pedigrees that have been updated in the past week are =uploaded on the Nutrien website and can be found at Nutrien Live – Online Catalogue (nutrienequine.com.au)

    The catalogue can be sorted in any number of ways including by sire so if you have a favourite sire you can check out all lots by that sire easily with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

    If you see a pedigree you like the preparer details are at the foot of the pedigree pages and inspection can be arranged with a phone call.

    Some lots already have photos available and more photos and videos will be uploaded in the next couple of weeks.

    Call me old-fashioned but nothing beats an in-person inspection.
