$900,000 purchase, Lot 155 (Pierro x Our Squeezer) from the draft of Westbury Stud.

After an action-packed week of selling, final results have been accumulated from the 94th National Yearling Sale Series at the iconic Karaka Sales Complex.

Karaka 2020 kicked off at Ellerslie with two million dollar races, in what is the culmination of breeding and raising a foal, the hard work it takes to get the horse ready for the sale ring and the training it takes to have a runner on the richest night of racing in New Zealand. In what was a historic night, Te Akau Racing saddled the winners of each feature and it was the fourth consecutive year the stable had won the two-year-old race.

Over the next six days of trading, 858 yearlings sold for a combined aggregate of $78,458,188. The averaged reached $91,443, the median closed at $55,000 and the clearance rate settled at 76%.

The highlight of the week was the $900,000 purchase by Garry Carvell Lot 155 (Pierro x Our Squeezer), a colt from the draft of Westbury Stud, the highest priced yearling ever sold by the Karaka based operation.

Buyers from all around the globe flocked to Karaka with international buyers making their presence felt.

All yearlings purchased at Karaka are eligible for the lucrative Karaka Million Series with two $1 million races available for graduates as two and three-year-olds, plus the $100,000 CollinsonForex Karaka Cup for the duration of their career. Nominations must be received by 5pm Tuesday 3 March 2020.
