Our colleagues who are working very hard at buying horses in Australia, report that they have bought some really good yearlings. Among them are a terrific Galileo colt, a very smart Royal Academy colt from a great international family, and an exceptional Rock of Gibraltar colt. They’ve also bought a quality filly by Galileo and an impressive Flying Spur colt. These yearlings will go into quarantine shortly and will be transported back to South Africa in the next couple of months.

Meanwhile the last day of the sale is on Thursday, and from all accounts it’s been a record sale with the top priced yearling so far, making AU$750,000.
