72 Lots On Offer For Online Auction
Whilst Warhorse is the highlight of tonight's bloodstockauction.com sale there are plenty of other options for keen buyers with 72 lots to go under the virtual hammer. Among the broodmare division there's Lot 1, Autumn Dawn, a half-sister to this season's stakes winner Tried And Tired - topweight and favourite in the Wangoomon Wednesday. Flying Spur is doing the job as a broodmare sire and his daughter Composure is another sale highlight. In foal to the in-form Turffontein whose service fee has now gone up, she is the dam of the stakes placed Cash For Matt and she is a half-sister to the Singapore star Ninetyfive Emperor and the local Gr2 winner Testa My Patience. Tough race mare Loves Long Journey is another bound to attract attention as the three times winner is being sold with a colt at foot by the Melbourne Cup winner Americain, one of Victoria's most popular young stallions. Rory's Jester mare Ora Smytzer, who has a real look of her sire, is a half-sister to one of the very best Australian bred mares, the wonderful Sun Classique - a four times Gr1 winner in South Africa and Dubai. From the family of the legendary Century, Ora Smyzter boasts a perfect record with her first four foals all winners. The tried racehorse market is particularly strong at the moment and tonight's bloodstockauction.com catalogue boasts some enticing prospects.
