To this end Arrowfield Stud, one of Australia’s most successful and best known thoroughbred farms, has teamed up with to offer 25 yearlings for unreserved sale with bidding already open, the sale to take place on Tuesday May 12.

This is the first time that Arrowfield Stud (a farm that has produced 24 Gr.1 winners within the past decade… including Alabama Express, Castelvecchio, Estijaab, Maid Of Heaven, Shoals, Super Seth, Tagaloa and The Autumn Sun) has offered its yearlings on any online auction platform and its Director, Anthony Gafa is both delighted and proud to be chosen for this exciting partnership.

“We are well aware of Arrowfield’s outstanding history of producing top class performers and what a great opportunity this is for owners and trainers across the country to bid on such quality stock.”

The many advantages of the concept have been well appreciated; the ability to arrange inspection, to bid from the comfort of home on horses who have not had the stresses involved with going to a traditional yearling sale.

Arrowfield Stud is providing comprehensive scoping and veterinary reports whilst conformation videos will give potential buyers every chance to secure just the sort of horse they are looking for.

And what a nice selection of horses it is with the progeny of such superstar stallions as Redoute’s Choice and Snitzel as well as those by such exciting international horses as Animal Kingdom, Maurice, Mikki Isle and Real Impact… Redoute’s Choice’s promising young sons Panzer Division and Scissor Kick also represented as is the proven stallion Smart Missile.

They are from great families too with a daughter of the Gr.1 mare Clean Sweep, a son of the imported stakes winner Restless Soul and relations of the stars Danehill, Lonhro, Alinghi, Yankee Rose, Wigmore Hall and More Joyous.

With five Real Impact yearlings on offer, the win by Japanese son Lauda Sion landing the ¥205 million (~A$2.9 million) Tokyo NHK Mile Cup 1600m G1 yesterday could not have come at a better time.
