    Nutrien Sales 2023

    The first is Sydney on March 5
    I have started my window shopping (only for stallions I favour)

    The first crop of Captain Crunch has 20 in the sale
    It will be interesting to see what they fetch
    Obviously by the all conquering Captaintreacherous
    and from an excellent dam line which has already produced sire Sweet Lou ( sis of dam)
    I being super careful don't include first season sires on my list even when pretending

    Ann will be looking forward to seeing 5 Poster Boy's in the sale but it is the 8 Melbourne lots that will create the most interest in him

    I should have mentioned other first season sire McWicked - a couple of his later lots may create a bit of interest

    These are the ones from Sydney that I could be enticed into taking a share in and pretty much don't require justifying

    7 Captaintreacherous Lots 33, 51, 142, 145, 183, 197, 203

    Only 2 Bettors grabbed me Lots 44 and 107

    Only 1 Art Major = Lot 132

    3 Sweet Lou's Lots 13, 73, 206

    and 1 Somebeach while he is still around Lot 192

    Downbytheseaside is somewhat lucky to be on my list of Sires and only because of his US results (He only had 24 2yos on the ground in Oz with 3 winners from 10 starters)
    But I could not find a Sydney yearling whose pedigree I loved.

    Always B Miki is also on my list more so for US results (although not so much '22 2yo's) but it is hard not to be tempted by Lot 90 from a Bettors daughter of Tailamade Lombo. Miki x Bettors has 2 US millionaires
    While Lot 91 is a full sister to Joyful and dam Joyfuljoy has been very hard to get in foal.
    Lot 153 has some appeal but there is nothing to go on for this cross but I have always wondered whether Soho Lanikai might have been something special (will we see any of his in a sale - he sired 13 for this season)
    Lot 172 which does have Tricky Miki to support the cross and
    Lot 215 is from quite a strong US damline
    I must have been feeling a lot more generous when I got down to Always B Miki as that is 5

    ps What is with Breeders naming yearlings - buyers want to name their own horse

    Poster Boy has left good types of foals , very similar to himself. Surprisingly , there is the odd chestnut and others with some white markings. The third dam of Aston Villa: Village Secretary was a chestnut sired by Armbro Omaha ( chestnut) .He was an outstanding performer on the track winning The Little Brown Jug amongst prestigious races in the US. He was inducted into the Canadian Hall of Fame in 2005. I hope he passes on his ability as well as his colour.
    We have retained 2 by PB, a colt out of Pistol Abbey and a filly out of Kabbalah Karen B. Fillies out of KKB will no longer be offered to the market. She had a Captaintreacherous filly this year.

    Now the Queensland Sale - short and sweet

    Some will be attracted to Always B Miki's 273 and 333 because of the 2nd dams

    and to Captaintreacherous's three lots 256, 337, 351 because of their 2nd dams

    Same again for Downbytheseaside 2nd dams might entice a few for 241, 276

    and again for Somebeachsomewhere's only lot 342 which could be a very tempting last opportunity with the 2nd dam a Broodmare Of The Year

    Lot 274 by Sweet Lou and you don't have to worry about 2nd dams - this lot is from the dam of My Hard Copy

    This sale is on March 12 (the week after the Sydney sale)

    I have moved this thread here as it is virtually the only forum anyone visits - I will eventually move it back to Breeding

    I have started on the Melbourne catalogue

    I will happily have any of the 6 Captaintreacherous

    The standout of the Bettors is 485 on the golden cross
