Dear Breeder, The major yearling sales have concluded and the new breeding season is fast approaching. The Australian yearling market remains vibrant due mainly to the growing strength of the $100,000 to $400,000 zone. International interest is adding to domestic demand and driving the strength of this section of the market. Australian horses continue to do well internationally which should see this growth in demand continuing. It is difficult for smaller breeders to access the bloodstock that can produce yearlings to suit this market as mares are expensive and the standard of production and presentation is of the highest caliber. Blue Gum Farm is making it possible for all those interested in breeding top class thoroughbreds to get involved.
We have acquired three mares that we have great faith in. A Stakes winner from America in foal to Fastnet Rock’s exciting son Wanted, a Group 2 performer with a foal by the Group 1 producer Charge Forward and a young city winning half sister to a TJ Smith Stakes winner in foal to the Golden Slipper winner Sebring.
The mares will be mated to the most appropriate commercial stallions wherever they may be within Australasia with the view of producing highly appealing sale yearlings. An annual review of each mare will be undertaken to establish mating plans and other strategy, including the potential sale of the mare, if it maximises returns to the investors. Maximising investor returns is what this exercise is all about.
Attached is all the information on the mares. We hope you will join us in this exciting venture.
