LOT 52 Alta Louisa0002ALTA LOUISA – Lot 52

Bay filly by Art Major/Alchemist, D.O.B. 1/11/16

From a very influential family both on the racetrack, and subsequently the breed barn, this filly represents the next generation whereby inherited toughness is crossed with modern day speed. Her dam Alchemist p.3, 1.56.4 with 16 wins $322,870 performed well with credit against her peers both in N.Z. And W.A. culminating in a win in the W.A. breeders Stakes (G3).

LOT 52 Alta Louisa0001
LOT 73Alta Charade0002ALTA CHARADE – Lot 73

Black Colt by Sunshine Beach/Alta Panache, D.O.B. 24/11/16

LOT 73Alta Charade0001
LOT 130 Alta Redeemer0004ALTA REDEEMER – Lot 130

Bay Colt by Alta Christiano/La Joconde, D.O.B. 22/11/16

A lovely colt with all the right breeding credentials to go with his good looks as well. He is a half-brother to Alta Orlando p.2,1.56:2 $197.372, who was N.Z’s leading stakes earner of his 2 yr old season. Myeyesadoreya also has vastly improved her record in the USA with 3 wins already and a new black type mile rate of 1.55:7 P.6. This is an enduring family as evidenced by a win in the Hunter Cup by Sir Reilly p.1.57:1            

LOT 130 Alta Redeemer0003
LOT 173 Alta Endeavour0001ALTA ENDEAVOUR – Lot 173

Bay Colt by Somebeachsomewhere/Princess Arts, D.O.B 31/10/16

A very correct colt of medium size with an attitude suggesting an early juvenile career on the race track. His pedigree backs up this presumption, being littered with many winners and black type performers, such as Franco Nelson p.2, 1.57:4, $615,469 and Spanish Armada p.2 1.55.7, $787,471.
