WS bred and sold Pins filly, Pin Me Up (ex Brampton Loco) produces a superior performance to claim the Listed Karaka Million 3YO Classic for Jamie Richards at @ellerslieraces and give her sire his 86th stakes winner. She was a $270k @karakachat National Sale buy for @awbloodstock and owners Konj P/L. Congratulations 🍾
With yearling prep in full swing ahead of the 2022 @karakachat Sales, these two handsome Ardrossan & Tivaci colts are keeping a watchful eye over the yard this morning making sure everything is running smoothly 😍
It was an early start on Sunday morning as we loaded up our babies to head across the ditch to @sledmerestud for the final few weeks of their @inglis_sales Classic Sale prep 🤩. Some future stars among them, with progeny of Savabeel, Tivaci, Ocean Park and Sacred Falls 🌟
By our G1-producing sire Tivaci, Lot 837, a solid colt out of the well-bred mare Caramel Sundae, sells for $350k at @magicmillions 💪🏻. Purchased by Bahen Bloodstock, we look forward to seeing him follow in the footsteps of his sire’s stakes-winning progeny 🙌🏻
