MM: SAVABEEL/NINA FROM PASADENA Colt - $220,000


PROVEN CROSS: This colt is a full-brother to PASADENA GIRL, SAVABEEL’s only Group 1 winning two-year-old. That filly won the Champagne Stakes in Sydney and was the first foal of REDOUTE’S CHOICE mare and three-time winner NINA FROM PASADENA. She has produced three foals to race for three winners with the three-year-old scoring since the sale.

His Cox Plate winning sire is continuing to dominate the Australasian racing scene with 67 stakes winners to date and three New Zealand Champion Sire titles. His progeny include Derby winner SANGSTER, six-time Group 1 winner KAWI and Queen Elizabeth winner LUCIA VALENTINA to name a few.

SAVABEEL has had eight black-type two-year-old winners and with this cross proven at two, and given the athletic nature of this colt, we have high expectations that this bloke will be up-and -running early for his owners.

MM: HINCHINBROOK/HIDDEN MESSAGE Colt - $240,000


NICE TYPE: This colt is by Champion First Season Sire of 2014-15 HINCHINBROOK who has had a excellent start to his stud career. Twice a winner at two himself, the sire has produced 193 runners for 115 winners with 11 stakes winners, including two-year-old Group 1 winner PRESS STATEMENT.

HIDDEN MESSAGE is the dam of this colt, a Pentire mare we trained to multiple city wins during her racing career. She was a gorgeous middle distance mare that has thrown lovely types so far as we had the fortune to see her first foal, a two-year-old named Phoneme, trial impressively at Flemington in the past fortnight.

Having seen the type of horse that the two-year-old had grown into made our decision easy to commit to this colt as he is a lovely looking yearling that looks like he will grow into a sprinter/miler of substance.

NZB: DISSIDENT/ROLLING IN THEDEEP Colt - NZD$80,000


FAMILIAR FAMILY: This colt is out of city winner ROLLING IN THEDEEP, who is half-sister to Group 1 performer and Group 2 winner CENTENNIAL PARK and our own Group 1 WA Derby runner-up and Group 3 winner BALLACK and 2yo city winner Awake in Grinzing. His direct female line includes Group 3 winner PROCRASTINATE, who turn produced South African Champion Sprinter and Group 1 winner LAISSERFAIRE, as well Group winners A TIME FOR JULIA, TIME THIEF, FOREPLAY and PERSONIFY.

The classy colt is from the first crop five-time Group 1 winner DISSIDENT. His sire turned up season after season at the top level having won a Blue Diamond Preview at two, finished runner up in Gold Rose as a Spring 3yo before winning the Randwick Guineas in the autumn. As an older horse trained on to win the WFA features in Sydney (All Aged Stakes) and Melbourne (Makybe Diva, Memsie & CF Orr).

We love this family and this horse really fits the same mould of the performers on his pedigree page which has us very keen on his future given the price we were able to secure him at.

Easter: ALL TOO HARD/RECOINAGE Colt - $75,000


VALUE BUY: As the prices continued to soar at the Easter Sales we were able to snare this son of ALL TOO HARD for just $75,000. The sire is continuing to impress early in his stud career having produced stakes winners VILLERMONT, DEMONETIZATION, ALL TOO HUIYING and CURDLED. As a racehorse the half-brother to the immortal BLACK CAVIAR won four-times at Group 1 level, winning the Caulfield Guineas, CF Orr, Futurity and All Aged Stakes as well as finishing runner-up in the Cox Plate.

The colt's female line is strong with his dam being the dual Randwick winner and Group 3 placed FLYING SPUR mare RECOINAGE, who is a half-sister to Group 2 winner & Group 1 placed SOVEREIGN NATION and stakes placed Houston Benefactor. This colt's granddam SOVEREIGN DUCHESS has produced eight foals to race of which all are winners, and is a half-sister to Champion NZ Filly (2006-07) and Champion NZ Stayer (2007-08) PRINCESS COUP, who won four Group 1s from her 10 career black-type victories and was also placed in the Caulfield Cup, The BMW, Australian Cup, Mackinnon Stakes and Ranvet Stakes.

MM JUNE: BRAZEN BEAU/POKAZI Colt - $28,000


DADDY'S BOY: This colt is out of the first crop of BRAZEN BEAU and is a spitting image of his dad. His sire was a sprinting star winning the Newmarket Handicap as a three-year-old after having won the Coolmore Stud Stakes in the Spring. He took on the Europe’s best in the Golden Jubilee at Royal Ascot finishing second and he also ran second in the Lightning Stakes here at home.
