New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Premier Sale
Lot 150 - RIP VAN WINKLE/ MY FUNNY FACE colt

From the first southern hemisphere crop of Rip Van Winkle, a winner of the Group One Sussex Stakes, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and the International Stakes at York, Blue Sky Bloodstock have secured Lot 150 from the draft of Trelawney Stud at the 2014 New Zealand Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale for $80,000.

From the same sale ring as Blue Sky Bloodstock secured Super Easy – a three time Singapore Group One winner, as well as Keep De Rose – a Group Two performer in the Danny O’Brien stable, our colt is out of the Marscay mare My Funny Face, the dam of five foals to race for four winners highlighted by the stakes winning pair of Gondorff (Montjeu) and Princess Annaliese (Van Nistelrooy).

Marscay mares have produced over 150 stakes performers including 21 Group One winners such as Eremein, Elvstroem, Catbird, Defier and Camarena.
