One of the greatest harness racing stallions of all time in Artsplace is still available to breeders in the southern hemisphere via his frozen semen even though he has been deceased for nearly nine years.

The son of Abercrombie has run up a set of statistics in the northern hemisphere that are truly mind boggling and will surely see him regarded as one of the all time greats.

Winners - 1179        Stakes won $172,974,661     18 Millionaires      48 in 1:50 

Artsplace only has three colts available in this years series of yearling sales in New Zealand and only one in the Australasian Classic Sale in Auckland.

The colt for sale in Auckland is Lot 53, Bobs Your Uncle and he has a strong maternal family to support him.

He is the second foal from the young Bettor's Delight mare Delightful Dale who though she qualified was unraced.

The second dam is the former smart age group performer Dale Elinor 1:57.2 ($60,985) who finished an unlucky second in the Bathurst Gold Tiara Final at two.

Dale Elinor has had a wretched run at stud with Delightful Dale her only live foal old enough to race at this stage.

A full sister to Dale Elinor in Karen Donna left last seasons outstanding two year old filly Katy Perry 1:56.7 ($378,478)

Kate Perry is by Bettor's Delight making her a full sister in blood to the dam of Bobs Your Uncle, Delightful Dale

The third dam is the former star two and three year old filly in Megaera 1:56.8 ($250,646) who won the Caduceus Club Classic and the New Zealand Sires Stakes Filly final at three among her eight wins and was 1995/1996 two year filly of the year.

This is another branch of the ultra successful Black Watch family which continues to churn out classic winners every season.

Artsplace has already proven himself in the southern hemisphere with over 100 winners to date including such standouts as Guaranteed 1:50.4 ($810,772) and Flightpath 1:55.9 ($290,684) 

Bobs Your Uncle has all the credentials on both sides of his pedigree to add to the record of his sire.
