Little Avondale Excited About Online Weanling Sale
New Zealand's Little Avondale Stud believe the New Zealand Bloodstock National Weanling Sale will be another success for online auctions, with a select line-up of youngsters available for the sale, reports racingnews.co.nz. Little Avondale will offer two weanlings from the first southern hemisphere crop of their shuttle stallion dual Gr2 winner Time Test (Dubawi-Passage of Time, by Dansili). "It hasn't been easy to part with them," Sam Williams said. "I gather a lot of breeders with his (Time Test's) foals have held onto them, but I really need to showcase our first season sire. Both our colts are from stakes-performing mares, and they're well grown sorts with plenty of strength." Little Avondale will also offer several weanlings by their resident sire Per Incanto (Street Cry-Pappa Reale, by Indian Ridge). "We had an abnormally high amount of Per Incanto fillies in 2019 so we can't take them all to the yearling sales," Williams said. "His fillies are very popular, they've averaged $85,000 over all the books at the last two Karaka yearling sales, so there's plenty of upside if you can pin-hook a nice weanling." The Little Avondale weanling draft will be available for inspection from 10am Friday 19 June at Waikato Stud.
