Sales Season Kicks Off Soon
Dec 26, 2018
If you thought Christmas was the busiest time of the year, spare a thought for those that work in the racing industry! Not only is Christmas Day the only day there are no races, it's also a sign that the major yearling sales are just around the corner.
Starting with the Gold Coast Yearling Sale on January 10-16, there are ten major sales events from then until the Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney on April 8-10, and for anyone that's been to a yearling sale as a buyer, it's not all seafood lunches and champagne!! Many hours are spent studying the horse's pedigrees, conformations and attitudes as buyers try to sort the wheat from the chaff.
Grand Syndicates will again be targeting most of the major sales, looking for the next bargain that will have you in the winners circle!!
With previous sales success stories such as Khutulun ($16,000 buy, 8 wins and $500,000), Tykiato ($6,500 buy, 7 wins and $240,000), Man Of His Word ($10,000 buy, 6 wins and $450,000) and rising star Behemoth (pictured), who has won 2 from four and $90,000 (and been the subject of significant offers from overseas!), Grand certainly has the runs on the board when it comes to turning cheap purchases into racetrack success.
So if it's a bargain racing experience with a company that has a proven track record that you're after, watch this space as we will keep you posted with our purchases as we make them.
