    I have only gone through the fillies in the Melbourne sale so far

    An obvious is Lot 142 the full sister to Heavens Trend being a Rock N Roll Heaven x Trend Setter (Perfect Art)

    Overall I was attracted to the Rock N Roll Heaven's with a similar cross ie Art Major mares - who happened to be young unproven broodmares at this stage but all from good 2nd dams

    Lot 67 Rock N Roll Heaven x Manellira (Art Major)
    Lot 148 Rock N Roll Heaven x Tuscan Breeze (Art Major)
    Lot 169 Rock N Roll Heaven x Artistic Pleasure (Art Major)
    Lot 172 Rock N Roll Heaven x Arty Chick (Art Major)

    Other filly lots I found interesting were 130 (full to Ideal For Real) plus 184 (half to Lumineer) and 221 (full to Kualoa)
    but there were plenty more that others will like

    It has been pointed out to me that the RNRH x Art Major cross has not got the score on the board of that of his full bro Perfect Art
    I cannot claim to have done thorough research as I am not going to be a buyer (purely fantasy stuff)

    It has been reported that av price was up 16%

    Maybe to be expected as Ray Chaplin's research (Equine Excellence) showed that there were 16% more foals from the top 5 stallions in the sale compared to last year

    It also should be noted Kev that the 16% up is on last years sale, which was significantly down on the year before.

    It's good for breeders that produce foals just for the sales that prices were up but I don't see how higher prices will help attract new owners to the industry. Also disappointing that less than 20 stallions had progeny in the Melbourne sale. Seems that APG have an elite group of stallions that foals must come from. Bad luck for the smaller studs .
    Don't die wondering !

    I think it is more the case that yearling buyers have an elite group of stallions that they wish to select from, and it is much smaller than 20. I don't think you can lay any "blame" for that on APG.

    I think that should read Trevor that under the current distribution of funds collected by APG buyers only want to purchase yearlings by an elite group of stallions, and selected mares. Given that APG is an industry body should it continue to distribute those funds so that only a small group of breeders are advantaged by the preferences of buyers.

    Should APG redistribute race allocations so that buyers are inclined to buy over a wider variety of stock? Should the governing bodies place more emphasis on supporting the production of “raceway” stock rather then a focus on provision of high returns for elite stock. It is about balance but at the end of the day we need sufficient stock to fill race fields for the provision of day to day wagering by the TAB, and is our current industry sales vehicle doing what it needs to to ensure that.
