With the 2022 NZB National Yearling Sales less than two weeks away, buyers have an opportunity to purchase yearlings by New Zealand based sires whose progeny continue to perform on an international stage. A number of exciting young stallions are also well represented and if the quality of a number of the yearlings we have seen during our first inspections is anything to go by, the future looks bright.
BPB has always prided itself on looking to the future. Being involved in sourcing and securing stallions that they totally believe in has been a big part of that ethos. While Savabeel, Per Incanto and Zed are wonderful ambassador’s for BPB, we are looking forward to the new boys stepping up. Tivaci has already sired a Gr1 winner in Australia and Time Test’s first crop are 2yo’s and are looking promising. The latest stallion that BPB has been involved with from the outset is Ardrossan. His first two yearlings sold at auction made $170,000 & $70,000 at the recent Inglis Classic Sale and after seeing his Karaka representatives, it will be no surprise to see that success continue.
Stallion selection is never easy especially given the incredible demand from Australian Studs, so it is deeply satisfying for BPB to see these stallions succeed and leave their mark on the New Zealand breeding industry.
