Vicbred shines through at Nutrien Equine Yearling Sales

20 April 2021 | Harness Breeders Victoria

Vendors who are Harness Breeders Victoria members featured prominently at the Nutrien Equine Standardbred yearling sale held this past weekend.

The highest priced pacing (and overall) lot was the Bettor’s Delight– ur Golden Goddess bred and offered by HBV members Benstud Standardbreds, and Peter and Zilla O’Shea and John McGeechan. That colt was bred in NSW at Benstud Standardbreds’ Crookwell property.

However the highest priced Vicbred pacing yearling bred by a HBV member at the Nutrien Equine Standardbred yearling sale was the Art Major–Arms Of An Angel colt bred and offered by Alabar Bloodstock. Purchased by Matt Craven, this stunning colt was knocked down for $110,000 after a spirited bidding duel.
