New Zealand Bloodstock’s Karaka May Sale has played a leading part in the recent successes of Group One winners Yourdeel (NZ) (Dundeel) and Gingernuts (NZ) (Iffraaj). Not only has the Sale been a source of top performers, but also a commonplace for the practice of pinhooking.

Yourdeel and Gingernuts are just a couple of the golden opportunities that have been realised by astute buyers who have made a return on investment, followed by bright futures on the racetrack.


Proven Record of Success at Karaka May Sale

Dual Group One winner and Karaka May Sale graduate Yourdeel (NZ) (Dundeel).
45 individual Karaka May Sale graduates have scored 79 stakes wins in the last five seasons.

Karaka Million 2YO placegetter Yourdeel (NZ) (Dundeel) is now a two-time Group One winner having stormed home from near-last for a brilliant victory in Saturday’s Group One Sires’ Produce Stakes following a win in the Group One Sistema Stakes three weeks ago. He joins a substantial list of Group One champions sourced from New Zealand Bloodstock’s upcoming Karaka May Sale.

The two-year-old gelding was on a fast track to success after impressing with a win on debut. Quickly earning black-type in the $1 million Karaka Million 2YO, Yourdeel claimed the Group Three Slipper Stakes before landing the Group One feature at Ellerslie.
