BC3 Thoroughbreds was delighted with its Future Stars Sale at Geelong last Friday week.
Standout gallops among the Ready to Race 2YOs were a Fastnet Rock colt co-owned by trainer David Hayes and colts by Ready’s Image and Tale of the Cat.
This year’s major purchase was the half-sister to Black Caviar which heralded the strength of the BC3 Ready to Race selling model. The Redoute’s Choice filly is also a half-sister to All Too Hard and Moshe.
BC3 is well known for producing high-quality readymade racehorses which this year includes major Melbourne Cups assailants Sanagas – to be trained by Bart Cummings and Val Champ who is currently in work with Anthony Freedman. Ownership opportunities are still available in Val Champ.
The BC3 programme is the brainchild of John Brocklebank who was at Geelong to oversee the gallops. He reminded those present the BC3 programme results in more than 90% of the yearlings purchased making it to the racetrack.
BC3 has built up a 70% winning strike-rate over the past three seasons topped by 56 winners in 2011.
BC3’s major ownership vehicle is the VIP Owners Program. It allows prospective owners to invest before the best of the BC3 graduates emerge from the programme fit, sound and ready to race. The key benefit is that those owners get first option to decide in which horses to align with.
BC3 Thoroughbreds contacts are Iain Nelson (0409 043 871) and Simon Marshall (0415 816 816).
