Friday, 31st January 2020

The 2020 edition of New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale Series – its ninety fourth – ended on Friday, with the final day of Book 2 Lots going under the hammer, followed immediately by Book 3 yearlings at the iconic Karaka Sales Complex. At the conclusion of Book 2, 282 Lots had sold for a turnover of $9,873,500. The average and median reached $35,012 and $25,000 respectively with the clearance rate closing at 69%. Bloodstock agent Guy Mulcaster topped the last session of Book 2 when he went to $120,000 to secure Lot 1097, a Preferment colt out of Excellent Art mare Essayez, from Hallmark Stud’s draft. All horses purchased at Karaka during the week-long sale are eligible for the lucrative Karaka Million Series with two $1 million races available for graduates as two and three-year-olds, plus the $100,000 CollinsonForex Karaka Cup for the duration of their career. Nominations must be received by 5pm Tuesday 3 March 2020.
