    OVER four days of trading and an unexpected postponement due to COVID-19, NZB Standardbred has broken three records at the conclusion of their 2021 National Yearling Sale. 

    The Sale Series ended with a combined aggregate of $13,333,500, up 10% on 2020’s overall aggregate of $12,109,250.

    NZB Managing Director Andrew Seabrook commented on the outstanding results.

    “Yesterday was a bit flat and it has been a sale of two halves, but we are really pleased with how the sale carried through today.”

    “It finished incredibly strong with two $300,000 lots and multiple records broken.

    “To be up over one million in aggregate over the whole series is a good result and we have got to be happy.

    “I’d like to thank all the vendors for the efforts they have put in during what has been a great four days of trading,” Seabrook said.

    The highlights of the session resulted in a round of applause at Canterbury Agricultural Park, with two lots selling for over the $300,000 threshold and breaking NZB Standardbred yearling sale records, both purchased from Katrina and John Price’s draft.

    Sale-topping Bettor’s Delight colt Lot 361 was purchased by prominent owners Emilio and Mary Rosati across the Tasman for $320,000. He is out of Hartofdixie (NZ) (American Ideal), making him a three-quarter sibling to Group One horses Our Maxim (NZ) and Our Splendour (NZ).

    Agent Peter Lagan was bidding on behalf of the Rosati’s at the Auckland and Christchurch Sales.

    “Emilio bought the lovely colt today which I thought was the pick of all the yearlings in both sessions and he sold accordingly.

    “He presented well and had a beautiful pedigree,” Lagan said.

    Lot 315 was purchased by heavyweight trainer Cran Dalgety for $310,000 under his Kentuckiana Lodge banner. The Bettor’s Delight colt out of Chicago Blues (NZ) (Christian Cullen) is a full sibling to track stars Chicago Bull (NZ) and Perfect Stride (NZ).

    John Price commented on the prolific results, who’s Price Bloodstock banner also claimed the leading consignor by aggregate title at the end of today’s pacing session.

    “We had two magnificent colts for sale and the results are absolutely unbelievable.

    “It’s been a great day and is beyond our wildest dreams,” he said.

    “They are going to stables where every opportunity is provided for them which is all you can hope for,” added Katrina Price.

    Victorian-based owner Jean Feiss was active again buying two quality lots today (335 and 422) and securing the leading buyer by aggregate title for the Christchurch session, totalling in six yearlings purchased for a turnover of $686,000.

    The undisputed king of New Zealand’s breeding ranks, Bettor’s Delight, topped the sires tables by aggregate and average once again after 26 yearlings sold for an aggregate of $3,003,000, averaging $115,500.

    All horses purchased today are eligible for the Harness Million Series with approximately $1 million in prizemoney for graduates of the Yearling Sale Series.
