QUEENSLAND’S squaregaiting stocks are poised to receive a significant boost.
As part of Sunday’s sensational NED’s Australian Pacing Gold Sale, 11 trotting-bred yearlings will ‘go under the hammer’.
Along with being from strong maternal families, the youngsters are by the likes of Majestic Son, Skyvalley and Volstead to name a few.
With relatives such as Group One winners Illawong Byron, Earl Of Mot, Amore Stride, Touch Of Flair, Enghien, Glennie Bilto, Mighty Maori, Nolte, Banglez, Illawong Barmah, Son Of Flair and Maoris Dream it’s easy to understand why interest in the ‘Exciting Eleven’ will be high.
One Lot which stands out purely on looks is 86.
Complete with white sock and blaze, the stunning chestnut is by Up And Quick from Heart Of Glass.
A daughter of Yentls Image, Heart Of Glass is the dam of three winners from four starters.
Heart Of Glass is a sister to Group One winner, Split Image, and a half-sister to Group One winner, Good Thanks.
The clan also includes multiple Cup winners Theywannacallmesue, Andyou, Danny Cash and Kimbo.
Lot 86 is eligible for the Breeders’ Crown, New South Wales Breeders’ Challenge and rich Qbred scheme.
