Launceston To Host Tassie Sale Tomorrow

The cream of Tasmania’s latest yearling crop will go under the hammer tomorrow at the 2012 Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale.

The Inveresk Showgrounds in Launceston will host the sale where 115 quality lots have been catalogued.

The sale, despite being annually small on numbers, is big on results – sale graduates regularly filling the winner’s stall at tracks around the country.

These recent graduates of the sale include star mare Lady Lynette, last season’s outstanding group winning juvenile Triple Asset and recent Derby winner Methuselah.

One of the leading vendors at the sale will be Armidale Stud with 17 lots in the catalogue.

The Whishaw family’s operation scooped the pool at the Tasmanian Awards for the 2010-11 season with the Two and Three-Year-Old of the Year, Racehorse of the Year and Filly and Mare of the Year.

The McCulloch family’s Grenville Stud have another quality draft at the sale and they will present Lot 1 – a filly by Incumbent from Safe Haven.

Aceland Stud, the breeder of last week’s Tasmanian Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Tiger’s Cub have another top draft including his half sister by Hay List’s sire Statue of Liberty.

Among the lots catalogued in the sale include stakes winners Classic Marco, Dream the Dream, Nuclear Free, Brief Embrace, Braequest, King’s Scholar, Radha Rani, Testamarriage and Twenty Grand.

Stakes winning mares with progeny catalogued include Dream of the Danc, Angel’s Jewel, Cattle Kate, Di’s Angel, Escapada, Galvanized, Gehenna, Genuine Girl, Private Nip and Wavishing.
