Day 2 NZB National Sale – Written Tycoon mare bought by Curraghmore

After the weanling session of NZ Bloodstock’s National Sale concluded on Thursday, attention turned to the mixed sessions which was topped by Prestigious Miss at $80,000.

Offered by Oxford Thoroughbreds, the G2 performed daughter of Written Tycoon was purchased by Curraghmore Stud.  “She’s a lovely, quality mare with good performance, and I thought she was great value,” commented studmaster Gordon Cunningham.  “She’s going to visit Pierro in the spring.”

It capped off a highly successful two days for Curraghmore.  The Ohaupo based stud was the leading weanling vendor for the 8th year in a row.  Their Savabeel – Skeena colt is the top lot of the sale thus far at $115,000.

In total, 58 of the 81 horses on offer during the afternoon of Day 2 sold for $277,950 at an average of $4,792 and clearance of 78% providing total turnover of $2.81 million across the past two days of selling.

The Broodmare session (Lots 430 – 658) will complete the National Sale at Karaka on Friday.
