The first Australian born progeny of New Zealand harness racing champions Auckland Reactor and Lincoln Royal (Sir Lincoln) will add an extra dimension to the Harnessbred.com South Australian Yearling Sale to be held at Globe Derby Park on Sunday, February 21.

Auckland Reactor, twice NZ Horse of the Year, will be represented by a filly out of the Globe Derby winner Rivergum Magic, while Lincoln Royal, the NZ 3YO of the Year, has a half-sister to Caroline Bay (8 wins).

Art Major, Australia’s No 1 juvenile sire, has two fillies nominated for the sale, one the first foal of Dungeon Queen (16 wins), a half-sister to the classic winner Android, and the other from a winning half-sister to three winners.

Another NZ superstar, Changeover, is represented by a colt from a successful Art Major mare, while Four Starzzz Shark, the sire of Inter Dominion champion Lennytheshark, has a filly out of a 1:58.6 Artiscape mare.

Promising sire Artistic Fella’s single entry is a half-sister to last year’s Southern Cross 2YO Final runner-up Rockfromcork, being out of the well-related Armbro Operative mare Arm A Corka.

The established sires Blissfull Hall, Grinfromeartoear and Julius Caesar all have single nominations, while another newcomer, Heart Space (a NZ bred son of Artsplace), also has one entry.

The sale will be held at Globe Derby Sunday February 21 commencing at 11am printed catalogues will be available first week in January.
