Mark’s Mail – 22 March, 2019

Mark Chittick

Our stallions are all red hot with Savabeel leading the charge with his daughter Concert Hall becoming his latest Group winner and my old friend Pins was represented by Emily Margaret, who beat the boys at their own game in the Gr.2 Wellington Guineas.

Ocean Park has had another top week with his 80th individual winner and we were also rapt to see WS bred and raced Monkey Shoulder show his quality with a smart win at New Plymouth – many thanks to Allan Sharrock and his team!

The weaning process is going well and it’s very encouraging to see so many lovely looking foals and weanlings on the farm.

This year, we will be making a couple of changes to the way we sell our weanlings and broodmares and, instead of offering them at the Karaka May Sale, we have made the decision to offer them for sale through the online sale platform Gavel House.

We will be offering a great line up of weanlings by proven sires that will give pin-hookers, and those looking to buy a young horse to raise and race, the opportunity to access some of our top bloodlines.

Our aim is to offer buyers a mature, well-raised product they can take through to the next stage in their career and the horses offered will meet a range of budgets.

At this stage, we will be looking to offer around 20 to 30 weanlings for sale from mid-June onwards and the mares will be offered shortly after.

We are in the process of fine-tuning how we will make the horses available for viewing and look forward to providing you with more information in the lead up to the online sale.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cheers
Mark
