Valachi Downs Dispersal x-rays and video scopes available

The x-rays and video scopes for all yearlings and select other horses in the Valachi Downs Unreserved Young and Racing Stock Dispersal are now available in the New Zealand Bloodstock Online Repository.

Hosted on Gavelhouse Plus, bidding on the 52 Lot auction will close from 7pm (NZT) on Friday 1 July.

Having launched on Saturday, early interest has been strong with 46 Lots having their purple reserve met flags up as of Wednesday morning.

All 24 yearlings in the sale have been broken in and have x-rays and video scopes available for registered veterinarians to access via the NZB Online Repository.

As expected Lot 18, the yearling full-sister to Tofane (Ocean Park), has already created an impression with early bidding taking her to $125,000.

Also proving popular having flown past six figures is Lot 21, the three-quarter sister to Zousain.

Valachi Downs General Manager Gareth Downey is pleased with the level of enquiry and number of parades the farm has hosted ahead of the final countdown on Friday.  

“I believe there is something for everyone in this current sale,” said Downey.

“Trainers and syndicators with clients looking to invest that don’t want to wait for the next round of major sales, should definitely be paying attention to what we have in this sale.”
