Major Stallions Feature In Online Auction
While racehorses are popular year-round, broodmares and stallion nominations are more seasonal. This is reflected in bloodstockauction.com's latest catalogue, which is currently live, culminating on Tuesday (21st) at 7pm. All-up, 41 broodmares are on offer, including mares in foal to Camelot, Choisir, Eurozone, Magic Albert, Equiano, Al Maher and Casino Prince. To complement this are 2015 nominations to 14 individual stallions including proven sires Duporth, Pendragon and Dane Shadow, young sires such as Tickets and Dreamscape and debut stallion, Rock Hero. Many of these nominations are unreserved. Two stallions are also offered for sale in the form of The King's Cross (a Redoute's Choice half to Charge Forward) and Keano, a stakes-winning son of Pins out of a half sister to O'Reilly. A robust and well bred weanling by Choisir out of Listed and Group 2 placed mare Ma Chienne is the only baby in the sale. Meanwhile, the 21 tried racehorses include several Provincial winners, and the unraced section offers some really interesting stock. It includes beautifully juveniles by Medaglia D'Oro and Commands, as well as a filly by Hinchinbrook and an Encosta De Lago three-quarter sister to Smokin' Joey and Our Smokin' Joe.
