The 2020 Ready To Run at Karaka was a huge success for vendors last week, with the sale being much stronger than initially was anticipated. With a clearance rate of 77% and average spend at $95,349, it was nice to see some lit up faces around the complex in what’s been a tough year for the industry.
BP Bloodstock was in attendance where we ended up being underbidders on a number of lots but were able to secure three great types. Lot 132 for Kris Lees Racing, the Tarzino x Alta Floresta filly from Westbury Stud. We also were able to secure lots 274 a Dundeel x Lodore Falls colt from Lyndhurst Farm and 305, the Tavistock x Mourasana colt from Curraghmore. These were both for Sam Kelt who has made an exciting return to the industry. We wish him all the success in the future with these two cracking colts who are being trained by Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott.
