There's been action on and off the track while we were at the Karaka yearling sales last week. On the track we saw Attivaree win impressively at New Plymouth making it 3 wins from her last 4 starts. This win gives her exemption from the ballot in the Taranaki Cup and a shot a some valuable black type for the Go Racing guys and an in-form O'Reilly mare.

After inspecting yearlings for the last 10 weeks we were lucky enough to secure 4 lovely fillies for the stable, the first being this filly who was knocked down to Te Akau Racing. She will race in our colours in partnership with the Chittick family at Waikato Stud. This yearling is from a very strong family being out of G2 and 8x time winning mare Singing Star, she is a half sister to G1 NZ Oaks runner up Miss Selby.

Lot 171 - No Excuse Needed x Singing Star 13f

Also from Karaka we managed to knock down this filly by leading NZ 3yo Sire Iffraaj. She's a cracking type and will be raced with Wellfield Stud and Max Whitby. She was high on our priority list and we are very happy to be taking her home.

Lot 756 - Iffraaj x Tinkerbabu 13f

The third filly we purchased was selected as a great entry level opportunity for Vermair members to get involved. She is by Champion Australian stayer- Shocking and out of the winning Lion Heart mare- French Lion. She holds good residual value being a half sister to a stakes winner and smart current 3yo Caduceus. Shares are available in her at a very affordable rate, we are retaining a share as we do in all our horses so get involved and enjoy all the thrills and spills of racing!

The final selection is a lovely type of filly by the son of Shamardal- Shamoline Warrior. She is out of the good producing mare Blue Lady who has left 6 individual winners of 29 races including Australian black type performer Humma. She was really good buying from the K3 sale and we may look to give her a R2R preparation.
