Mungrup Stud confident of strong yearling sales

Cameron NewboldAlbany Advertiser

Mungrup Stud are confident of a successful sale rate at the 2017 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sales which commence tomorrow, which will feature the first progeny of dual Group 1 winner Playing God.

Located in Narrikup, Mungrup Stud transported more than 40 yearlings, the most of any stud in WA, to Perth last Thursday ahead of the sales which start tomorrow and end on Tuesday.

This year will see the first of Playing God’s offspring on sale from Mungrup Stud along with yearlings from Oratorio and Dick Turpin.

Mungrup Stud’s Ann Croucher said they held a parade to prospect buyers on Friday night in Perth and had further viewings over the weekend ahead of the two-day sale at the Belmont Park Sales Complex.

“This is a very intense period for us but at the same time exciting,” Croucher said.

“We’d hope to sell quite a few but you always bring some home.

“We are feeling really confident with our Playing God types and we also have a beautiful group of Oratorio’s this season.”

Croucher highlighted lot 135 which is Oratorio – Zabore Loch filly that is a full sister to Karrakatta Plate winner Motion Pictures and lot 167 an Oratoria – Bantry Bay colt which is a brother to four winners already as a couple of highlights amongst their stock.

Cheval Stud in Mt Barker will also take two yearlings to the sale and Clare Downs Stud, also situated in Mt Barker, has a Trade Fair - Around Jindabyne filly up for grabs as their sole yearling.
