NZB National Yearling Sales Series Begins Today
The hammer will fall on the first of over 1300 of the finest thoroughbreds on offer at today's opening session of the 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale Series at Karaka. Last season 20 Group 1 races were won by 15 individual Group 1 winning graduates of NZB's National Yearling Sales Series. These Karaka alumni captured some of the most coveted races in Australasia - the Melbourne Cup, Emirates Stakes, Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Victorian Derby, Australian Derby and Australian Oaks. The National Yearling Sales Series has been the source of 82 Group 1 wins in the past four seasons - the most of any auction house in Australasia.
