8 Centaine Mares At NZB May Sale
The 323 mares catalogued for next month's NZ Bloodstock National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Karaka (May 4-6) include 8 daughters of ill-fated Waikato Stud-based stallion & star broodmare sire Centaine (currently leading both this season's NZ & Australian Broodmare Sire lists). Centaine's daughters have already produced 77 stakes-winners, including 17 Gr1-winners (among them this season's Australian Gr1 Doncaster Handicap winner Vision And Power, Australian Gr1 Toorak Handicap winner Alamosa & dual NZ Gr1-winner MacO'Reilly). Centaine has been crowned NZ's leading broodmare sire over the past 3 years, while in Australia he has not finished out of the top 10 over the past 5 years.
