I will be attending both the Patinack Dispersal later this month at the Magic Millions on the Gold Coast as well as the Keeneland Breeding Stock Sale commencing November 4th in Kentucky.
PATINACK FARM UNRESERVED DISPERSAL
September 28th to October 1st (Magic Millions - Gold Coast)
Next week I travel to the Gold Coast for the complete dispersal of the Patinack Farm breeding and racing operation to be conducted by Magic Millions Sales. I have inspected all broodmares and most of the race fillies and mares on farm in the last two weeks and can offer unbiased advice on values and conformation of the stock. I continue inspections on site at Magic Millions from Thursday 25th September of Broodmares, race fillies, yearlings and foals.
There will be a multitude of opportunities for shrewd buyers in this sale with some 550 lots on offer including foals, yearlings, race fillies and mares, broodmares, stallions and racehorses from some of the finest families in world. I believe there will be excellent value with the sale being held into the southern hemisphere breeding season and so many horses to get across for buyers. Our team has thoroughly researched the catalogue and cross referenced our physical notes so our clients get the best opportunity to be prepared come sale day.

KEENELAND NOVEMBER BREEDING STOCK SALE
November 4th to 14th (Kentucky)
The Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale is the world's largest and arguably the best sale of breeding stock held anywhere in the world annually.
More importantly for Australian breeders, Keeneland is the most relevant international sale for our industry, with American mares producing Australian bred stakes horses the likes of Aerobatics, All American, Alverta, Foxwedge, Gallant Tess, Hot Snitzel, Irish Lights, Lovemelikearock, More Strawberries, Northern Meteor, Run For Naara, Scissor Kick , Smart Missile, Soft Sand, Super Cool, Theseo and Zululand to name but a few in recent times.
Due to the size of Keeneland's November mare catalogue, Australian buyers looking in both the middle and top end of the market CAN successfully purchase quality stakes performed or stakes producing mares at value, and at a comparable exchange rate in US dollars. If you consider yourself a serious breeder aiming yearlings at Magic Millions and Inglis Premier sessions, you must consider quality American mares to boost your broodmare band.
