Now that the 2013 Inglis Premier Sales have concluded Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm is proud to announce that its draft of 8 yearlings, (7 sold), in the Premier 1 section of the sale topped the overall averages.
This is a great achievement for such a young broodmare farm not only for the quality of the young horses but also for the staff, a fact that was recognised by the Inglis Sales Company when principal, Peter Heagney, announced at the conclusion of sales that Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm had won the Luxbet award for the best presented draft at the sales.
Congratulations to farm managers Paul & Kathy Eden for their dedication and enthusiasm to achieve this wonderful result, but as Kathy pointed out it was a team effort that culminated in the final success. Well done to all!
The outstanding yearlings were the colt from Glimmers by Redoute’s Choice and the filly from Acceleration by Snitzel, both selling for $300K. The filly from Cica Cica by Choisir was also a highlight selling for $180K. Congratulations to all purchasers and may they have much success on the race track.
Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm Tops the Adelaide Magic Millions Sale 2nd. Session.
Having the disappointment of losing two of their draft from the 1st. session at Adelaide, Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm was ecstatic that their colt from Cosmic Express by Domesday topped the sales during the 2nd. session at $51K. Congratulations to Blue Moon Syndicate, (including Dane Swan and Dale “Daisy” Thomas), for selecting this colt and perhaps he is destined for as much fame as the “Magpies” in the months ahead.
The purchase in the 2nd. session by Nick Harnett of the filly from Nova Gen by Teofilo for $44K established Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm as the vendor with the best average for that session providing not only the top colt but also the top priced filly.
Once again, the team at Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm is congratulated on this outstanding result.
With the 2013 sales season behind us, (we chose not to present at the Sydney Easter Sales this year), Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm will be concentrating its efforts on the current weanling stock to hopefully emulate the 2013 outcomes in 2014.
And already the process is underway with young horses adjusting to life without their mums and being taken for daily exercise by humans no less.
This is always an interesting progression in the development t of the young horse and with astute handlers, Paul & Kathy Eden, Warren Diggles and the whole team it can be a most rewarding time and a little frustrating as well.
