Pedigree Boosters - Karaka

2 min read

In the build up to the New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale at Karaka, we will pick out three yearlings each day who have had substantial pedigree updates in the past couple of months.

Today, we look at a filly closely related to a top performer in Singapore, a colt whose family has been updated from several contributors and a filly who has been done multiple favours by a quality mare in Perth.

Close relative Elite Invincible (IRE) (Archacharch {USA}) provided a significant addition to the pedigree from afar when he powered to victory in the G1 Singapore Gold Cup.

This filly’s half-brother Stratocaster (NZ) (Mastercraftsman {IRE}) has also been doing his utmost with three wins from his last five appearances with their dam a half-sister to the G1 Belmont Matron S. winner Sense Of Style (USA) (Thunder Gulch {USA}).

Lot 622 Tavistock (NZ) x Capital Diamond (NZ) Offered by Cambridge Stud

This youngster has a pedigree that has enjoyed multiple updates and is a half-brother to the talented sprinter Gift Of Power (NZ) (Power {GB}), a multiple black type winner whose last success came in the Listed Levin S.

Further boosts have been provided in recent times with family members Queen Of Diamonds (NZ) (Savabeel) winning the G3 Eulogy S., Mongolian Marshal (NZ) (High Chaparral {IRE}) claiming the G3 Waikato Gold Cup and True Excelsior (Exceed And Excel) placing in the G3 Standish H.

Lot 682 No Nay Never (USA) x Di Falco Offered (NZ) by Highden Park

Close relative Celebrity Dream (NZ) (Thorn Park) has been doing the business in style in Perth with success in the G3 La Trice Classic and the Listed Jungle Dawn Classic.

Out of the unraced Zabeel (NZ) mare Di Falco (NZ), this is also the family of recent winner Rondinella (NZ) (Ocean Park {NZ}), who is considered by trainers Roger James and Robert Wellwood to be a stakes winner in waiting.
