(pictured above is Lot 142 - Umatilla (NZ) x Rhythm and Light Colt)

Yesterday saw the conclusion of the 2011 Autumn Yearling Sale. Blue Gum Farm was well represented with eight yearlings in its draft. It was with great pleasure and passion to see seven of these find new homes.

Amongst our draft were two wonderful stories. The first was Lot 142 whom was consigned on behalf of long term client and supporter of the farm in Rob Harvey. This lovely Umatilla colt is a fantastic individual himself and was knocked down to Aquanita Racing for $40,000. A big congratulations to Rob and hopefully he can aquit himself in a similar manner to that of his full brother in Draconic.

The second of our great stories was Lot 462. This Bel Esprit colt has had an interesting few months with him unfortunately having to be withdrawn at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale the previous month. However he finally got to show the quality he possesses and as a result was knocked down to Mick Price for $52,500. Once again our congratulations to Peter Trowbridge who has also been a long time client and supporter of Blue Gum Farm.
