Goodwood produces a Karaka cracker
30 Jan 2014Goodwood Stud’s outstanding Savabeel colt is headed to Hong Kong with a hefty price around his neck after realising $200,000 this afternoon.
The good-looker was the star turn on the second day of the Select Sale at Karaka with NZB representative John Cameron having the final say.
“I’ve bought a number of horses for the people involved in this particular horse and we have had quite a bit of success so hopefully I can add to that,” he said.
“He is a nice colt with a tremendous walk and has plenty of attributes about him that I like.
“There was a lot of interest in him before and during the sale which was justifiably so given his quality.”
“He was easily the busiest horse we have brought to the sale with so many wanting to have a look at him and thankfully that translated well in the ring,” Goodwood’s William Fell said.
“The mare has done exceptionally well for us at this sale with her first colt by O’Reilly sold to Hong Kong for $187,000 and last year her Pins filly went to Paul Shailer for $100,000.
“She is back in foal to Savabeel again this year so I’m hopeful we can keep that trend going when we come back to Karaka with the full-brother or sister.”
Goodwood completed an excellent day when their Darci Brahma filly sold for $100,000 to the final bid of John Galvin’s Fortuna Syndications.
She is out of an unraced Van Vistelrooy mare and the international family of the Group One winner and top sire Danehill Dancer.
