Strong Results for Online NZB National Weanling Sale
A solid afternoon of trading on Sunday has concluded New Zealand Bloodstock’s first-ever National Weanling Sale conducted on Gavelhouse Plus. The dedicated weanling session saw 60 lots sell for a total turnover of $1,044,051. The average reached $17,401 while the median closed at $8,250 and the clearance rate settled at a healthy 75%. Running on the enhanced online platform, the Sale caught the attention of an international buying bench with the top lot of the session, a weanling colt by Proisir out of Pennacchio (Lot 19), secured by Sydney-based trainer Anthony Cummings at a $107,500 price tag. Bred by Greg Tomlinson's Nearco Stud, whom Cummings also purchased Hong Kong Champion Beauty Generation from, the Curraghmore-consigned colt who is a half-brother to Hong Kong group performer Full of Beauty, surpassed last year’s top priced weanling at the Karaka May Sale of $95,000.
