Selection Is Everything – Easter 2014

With racing being very much a multi-dimension industry, where buying a yearling at a sale to perform on the race track is only one, of many facets. On the other hand, going to a yearling sale to secure a potential "sire prospect" that can go on to compete at black-type level before a successful stud career is what buyers dream about.

Blue Sky Bloodstock can help you secure those dreams – and their record highlights that! With numerous successful colts purchased from the Inglis Sale ring in the past few years, many of these colts have gone on to earn black-type on the track before retiring to the breeding sheds of some of Australasia’s most respected thoroughbred studs.

Putting in the hours of ground work is where the search begins and Julian and his team have been hard at work for many months, inspecting the yearlings on the farms, before analysing their pedigrees not only to see what is on trend at present, but looking for families that produce stallions.

Having spent the past few days at the sales complex inspecting a majority of their “short list”, Blue Sky are confident that there are some high quality stakes-winning sire prospects amongst them.

 “We are delighted with the quality of the catalogue and have a good list of future sire prospects selected and vetted ahead of Day 1 of the Easter Yearling Sale at Newmarket, stated Blaxland.

“Blue Sky will look to build on our past buying record at Inglis yearling sales (BENETEAU, SHRAPNEL, INSTINCTION, WOODBINE, REKINDLED ALLIANCE etc) with colts purchased in 2014 heading to leading trainers Gai Waterhouse, Danny O’Brien and Gerald Ryan.”

With the likes of Exceed And Excel, Fastnet Rock, Flying Spur, Choisir, Encosta de Lago, Al Maher and Reset all having been sold under the famed ‘fig tree’ at the Inglis’ Newmarket Complex at Randwick, it is the must attend sale if your ultimate aim is to secure a potential stallion prospect.

When discussing some of his short list, Julian highlighted that “there are some lovely running types in this year’s catalogue by sires such as Northern Meteor, Snitzel, Stratum, High Chaparral as well as Exceed And Excel to name but a few.

“Hopefully we can secure two or three quality colts within our criteria with future sire potential at the right money.”
