Nutrien Sydney Sale Wrap Up

Nutrien’s Sydney sale was a highlight for our team and we thoroughly enjoyed showcasing our yearlings at the Riverside complex.

Headlining Alabar’s lineup was the Art Major colt from Group 1-producer Snug Harbor (Lot 205 – pictured above). Summit Bloodstock went to $77,000 to secure the half-brother to Three Of The Best, plus Redbank Addi and we look forward to the day that we see him step out in their iconic silks.

The first crop yearlings by Captain Crunch found their way onto shortlists in every corner of the complex, and we were thrilled to see his daughter ex Kept In Play (Lot 94 – pictured left) record the highest price for a filly. Offered by Elite Bloodstock, she sold for $150,000 to the bid of Joel Watson.

Art Major wasn’t to be outdone, with his 13 lots sold averaging $49,230. Danny Zavitsanos won the battle for Benstud & Client’s Art Major half-brother to Group 1 performer Naturally Gifted (Lot 170), paying $95,000 for the blueblooded colt.

A daughter of Alabar’s resident Group 1 sire Rock N Roll Heaven caught the attention of many astute judges, with the Brooklyn Lodge consigned filly selling for $75,000 to Lucky Lodge.

Offered as Lot 202, she’s out of the stakes-winning Art Major mare Sheezallattitude and is a half-sister to Group 1 performer/Group winner Myra Dawn and Group winners Art Series and Saint Veran.

We want to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support and to congratulate those who celebrated success selling their Alabar-sired yearling.

We look forward to following their journey and future successes on the racetrack!
