ONE in every 10 horses purchased at last year’s Capricornia Yearling Sale has already won on the race track which is a glowing endorsement for the Rockhampton sale.
A week out from the rich Capricornia Yearling Sale 2YO Classic (1200m) at Callaghan Park and no less than 11 juveniles have been victorious at race tracks across Queensland.
In no particular order they are: Tycoon Flyer and Rocky Poet (Fred Smith); Hezhome (Craig Smith); Patches (Michael Nolan); Jelviss and Good Humour (Ben Currie); Woohoo Girl, Flying Crackerjak and Pound For Pound (Tom Button); Tiger Love (Chris Munce) and The Sinner (Natalie McCall).
They above-mentioned horses are trained far and wide – at Rockhampton, Roma, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
Needless to say that this year’s Capricornia Yearling Sale 2YO Classic race will be one of the strongest on record in terms of quality.
The Sale Carnival continues to gather momentum on the back of the race track feats of sale graduates and recent boosts to prize money for sale races.
The good news for owners, trainers and buyers looking to find their next winner is this year’s Capricornia Yearling Sale has 99 lots catalogued and is generally regarded as one of the best on paper in terms of pedigrees and quality.
