BRT Yearling Purchases Done and Dusted for 2018: Quality, Affordability and Residual.

10 Apr 2018

our sales season


1ST STOP : MAGIC MILLIONS JANUARY


It all started in January at the Magic Millions sale were we secured a filly by Wandjina out of the 1/2 sister to Karuta Queen from the draft of Bowness Stud. We have already developed a successful partnership with John North and his team from Bowness through the purchase of our smart Hinchinbrook filly Snicki Minaj. 

Snicki showed very good promise in her 1st campaign winning comfortably at Doomben before running an excellent 4th in the Listed Inglis Classic and we are sure she will go on to contest good races in the future. 

This filly by Wandjina was similar in build and will race as an All Ladies Syndicate Owned Yearling. 

SECURE 2 AT INGLIS CLASSIC SALE


We were off to Sydney for our next venture for the Sydney Inglis Classic Sale and we came away with 2 quality yearlings. The Al Maher colt purchased on the 1st night was highly regarded and considered by industry experts to be the best of his stock to go through any of the sales this year. 

The Stallion continues to churn out winners and his statistics continue to match that of the more expensive highly regarded sires. 

AL MAHER - SHIRRA NUI COLT

OLYMPIC GLORY - ABSOLUTE FAITH FILLY


We struck again at this sale purchasing a running looking filly by European Racehorse sensation Olympic Glory. Olympic Glory won 4 times as a 2 year-old and also won 4 Group 1's as an older horse. 2 of these wins were scintilating and have to be seen to be believed. 

This fillies breeding is super impressive being out of the Not A Single Doubt mare Absolute Faith who was Group 1,2, and 3 placed. This mare won as a 2-year-old up to 1400m and raced on to get over distances as far as 2200m. 

She is a great value yearling who is showing herself to be very precocious. As this newsletter is being typed with the Inglis Easter sale on in the background an Olympic Glory Filly has just sold for $400,000, a far cry from what we secured this filly for.

OFF TO TASSIE


We then headed off to the Tasmanian Magic Millions sale. We singled out 2 yearlings at this sale by Written Tycoon and we were lucky enough to land one of those. The filly out of Stakes Winner Honey Flower was another incredibly cheap purchase with a page that will mean her residual value can only increase. 

 Written Tycoon this year will stand at stud for $100,000 and is the sire of this year's Blue Diamond Winner Written By.

TEAM GOLLAN AND BRT STRIKE AT INGLIS MELBOURNE PREMIER SALE


Our next stop was at the Melbourne Premier Yearling sale. We secured 2 yearlings at this sale from the best sires in the country. Our first purchase, Pierro - Apprise colt was a star. He was definitely a colt who everyone believed was going to go for upwards of $200,000. 

In the end we secured him for a 1/3 of that price so were totally stoked. It was then deep into Day 2 that we secured a filly by dual hemisphere Leading stallion More Than Ready. His record with fillies and as a broodmare stallion is phenomenal. This filly has pedigree updates aplenty coming in the upcoming seasons and was another yearling we managed to secure at the right price. 

Both of these yearlings were purchased in conjunction with Tony Gollan and he will train them both at his Eagle Farm Stables.

MORE THAN READY - MISS OTTO FILLY






This girl is currently being broken-in and is pleasing breaker Jake Capewell immensely. His final comments this morning were she is a real nice filly. You don't get many chances to get into a More Than Ready filly at this price. 

A truly outstanding stallion who has produced the highest class racehorses as a sire and broodmare sire.

LAST STOP - ADELAIDE 

The last stop of our sales season was to be at the Magic Millions Adelaide sale. We purchased 2 more fillies at this sale.Our intentions were to purchase a well bred filly by an up and coming stallion and the other components we were looking for was buying a pedigree page that has every chance to go early. 

In the end we ticked at least one of those boxes when we secured a filly by one of the hottest stallions in the country, So You Think, who is on the hottest of hot streaks right now. He is really starting to find his feet and beginning to regularly produce high class stock. 

This filly had the added bonus of being out of a mare who won 4 listed races and 3 races as a 2-year-old. Follow the Till is also by broodmare sensation General Nediym. Again we feel we purchased her at unders and even more so now given the hot streak he is currently in. His service fee of $60,000 could rise on the back of his recent success. 


SO YOU THINK - FOLLOW THE TILL FILLY

Our final purchase was from the farm who has produced multiple champions with Extreme Choice the headline act. Bell River built an outstanding reputation in the thoroughbred world and you know this filly would have been raised in a manner that will give her every chance to be a success on the track. 

This filly has speed written all over her being by the producer of extremely early 2-year-old's Dream Ahead out of the very speedy 2-year-old winning mare Meiko's Diamond. She ran Buffering to within 1.95 length in a race in Brisbane so could definitely gallop. 

We will be instructing Matt Dunn to give her every chance of going early. This filly is currently being broken-in and we hope she shows precocity over the next 3-4 months so we can get her up for the early 2-year-old races. 

If she happens to show signs of not being the precocious type we believe we have we will not push her. On the page however this girl should go early and go quick. 

DREAM AHEAD - MEIKO'S DIAMOND FILLY
