Many of New South Wales' leading stud farms have thrown their support behind this year's Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling Sale with quality harness racing stock.

The sale, to be conducted by Davidson Cameron & Co Dubbo, will be held at the Bathurst Showground on Sunday, March 25 during the annual Bathurst Gold Crown carnival.

Golden Gait Stud, Canowindra, of Wayne and Anne Lamb, will offer the biggest draft of 18 yearlings including 10 from the first crop of the Breeders Crown champion Flightpath and three by the US 2YO Colt of the Year Major In Art.

The highlight of the Yirribee Pacing Stud consignment of 16 will be four yearlings by the exciting US import Stonebridge Regal and two by former Victorian pacing standout Robin Hood.

Doug and Janet Moore’s Brooklyn Lodge will offer eight yearlings including close relatives of Lady Euthenia and Hezgotattitude, while the Carmody clan of Maitland has a draft of 11, eight of which are by Smoken Up’s sire Tinted Cloud.

Medowie Lodge’s seven-strong draft is headed up by a half-brother to Run Albert Run and the only colt in the sale by the Inter Dominion champion and Little Brown Jug winner Mr Feelgood.

Ray and Anne Grubb, who sell under the banner of Sutton Lodge, will put five youngsters under the hammer including a pair of fillies by Armbro Operative and a colt by Village Jasper.

Andrew Daniels, of Calderwood Farm, has a draft of four yearlings, while Ken and Sue Smith, of Mimosa Banks Stud, also have four headed up by a Grinfromeartoear colt from the same maternal family as Rocknrolla and Sky Tower.

A number of leading interstate breeders are represented at the sale including Victoria’s Alabar Bloodstock with six entries including a ‘Grin’ colt from the Bathurst Gold Tiara winner Donna Lombo, and Cold Mountain Stud from Brisbane whose eight-strong draft contains five by the 1:49 US import Gold Dust Beach.

Kevin Newbound, a long-time supporter of the Bathurst sale, has entered four yearlings for this year’s edition headed up by a Kenneth J filly out of the multiple Group 1 filly My Cherie.

Grenada Park’s Helen Head will offer two fillies, one an Art Major half-sister to Derby winner Lively Exit and the other a Christian Cullen half-sister to Garnet River, also a Derby winner. Both look certain to attract keen competition by buyers.

Other prominent Victorian breeders represented at the sale include Brian and Graeme Gourley, Peter Gleeson, John Nalder, Jane Hearn and Ross Simpson.
