The adrenaline kicked in, the hand kept going up and Tom Hogan walked away the much-coveted sale topper, whose talented family inspired the late bidding frenzy. The hammer dropped at $130,000 on lot 229 at Sunday’s Australian Pacing Gold Melbourne sale, when 250 lots were offered and sales averaged $32,713, up 16 per cent on the 2018 staging. It was a full-brother to brilliant Victorian filly Petacular who prompted the bidding war, the Durham Park bred Somebeachsomewhere colt catching the eye of Hogan and Clayton Tonkin, partner of trainer Emma Stewart. “Breeding was the main thing,” Hogan said. “Clayton and I had look at him, walked him up many times with his farrier and vet, and then went back and had another look at him. They couldn’t fault him. “His breeding, he has great conformation, he’s a yearling but you could have passed him off as a two-year-old. He was the clear pick of the sale. Clayton had no hesitation in recommending him.” His full-sister, Petacular, sadly had to be euthanised in November 2017 after breaking a cannon bone while spelling, prematurely ending a career that yielded 19 wins and $454,083 in stakes for trainer-driver Michael Stanley. “Petacular and Miss Graceland had some battles but she was number one,” Hogan said. “If she didn’t break down she would still be number one. It’s unfortunate she is gone early, she was going to be a household name. “We went overboard (at the sale), but that can happen when you are waiting two and a half hours. The adrenalin gets you going. I’m hoping for a big two-year-old season, because the family and friends are not going to be happy with me if I’m wrong.” His partner, Sue Murray, will hold 20 per cent of the horse while her brothers-in-law and their three sons will also grab a slice, the first time the latter trio have ventured into trots ownership. Hogan said former Bulldogs footballer Mark Hunter, Maori Time’s owner Fred Crews, Darryl Edwards, Russell Condie and John Wilkins would also be among those sharing in the colt’s career. “I’ve been going for the last 10 or 12 years and buying horses at the APG for family and friends and fitting them in and they all get a kick out of it,” Hogan said. “I’m really happy. All of the owners are excited, in footy terms they’ve walked away with a number one draft pick.” For a more modest $35,000 Hogan also snapped up a Bettors Delight colt by The Waratah, having the previous year brought his half-brother, who was sired by Art Major. “His brother will trial in three weeks and he goes all right,” Hogan said. “He’s the pick of the two two-year-olds we bought last year.” Durham Park also delivered the sales topping filly courtesy of an Art Major yearling out of dam Hawiian Hottie, a full-sister to gun two-year-old Kualoa ($176,760), who fetched $120,000. They stole the headlines but there were many dreams pursued on Sunday as owners chased the next big thing only a day after watching Tiger Tara claim the Del-Re National A. G. Hunter Cup. A Somebeachsomewhere colt out of Dreams Of Heaven drew $95,000, with his new owners hoping a similar career to full-brother Menin Gate, winner of $574,758. David Moran and Laura Crossland’s in-form stable was prolific purchasing four, including a $70,000 Captaintreacherous colt out of Always Target, a half-sister to Milly Perez, and a $50,000 Rock N Roll Heaven colt out of Timely Loch. The latter is a half-sister to Just Irish Lock, the dam of Rock N Roll Heaven filly Shez All Rock ($426,350), who had a breathtaking three-year-old season. 2016-17 Victorian VHRSC owner of the year Danny Zavitsanos swelled his stable with two purchases, including snapping up a Durham Park filly for $40,000. She is by American Ideal out of Camluck dam Magic Z Tam, a half-brother to Tam Major ($125,500). He also topped the bidding at $50,000 for a two-year-old by Somebeachsomewhere, who was the second foal out of Repelem, a half-sister to three-year-old Revolt. Fellow owner Kevin Riseley has enjoyed plenty of good horses and was drawn to Alabar’s Bettors Delight filly, who he purchased for $30,000. She is the second foal out of lightly raced Maid For You Lombo, a Sportswriter mare who’s dam was none other than Tailamade Lombo, winner of $1.3 million The Go Racing Syndicate, which has the likes of Cant Refuse, Hectorjayjay and King Of Swing among its number, put the hand up for a Rock N Roll Heaven filly whose dam, Manellira, is out of Amarillen. The latter’s foals include Nostra Beach ($236,080), Miss Graceland ($224,458), Villagem ($626,585) and Pixel Perfect. While Pixel Perfect was unraced, all five of her foals produced six-figure stakes including Soho Tribecca ($1,103,374) and Carlas Pixel ($475,128). Justin Baker was again prolific at the sales, with his purchases including $80,000 for a Somebeachsomewhere filly out of Perfect Life. Part of Peter Gleeson and Bruce and Craig Cameron’s lines, the filly was a half-sister to two-time Southern Cross Series winner That’s Perfect. The dam, Perfect Life, is a half to Beauty Secret ($425,921) and Major Secret ($464,872). Barker also paid $75,000 for an American Ideal colt out of Smouldering Desire, with the dam a half-sister to Inter Dominion and Hunter Cup winner Smolda. Also prominent were New South Wales based trainers, with Tim Butt, Rickie Alchin, John McCarthy, Blake Fitzpatrick and James Rattray each snapping up lots sired by Captaintreacherous among their purchases. Rhiannon Park mare Slip Slop Slap produced reigning Victorian Horse of the Year Jilliby Kung Fu ($526,710) in 2012 and so her Captaintreacherous colt attracted $70,000. A key juvenile rival of Jilliby Kung Fu was Our Little General whose half-sister, Someone To Love, had A Rockndoll Dance colt sell for $44,000. Florida-based Victorian trots owner Marc Hanover and Gordon Banks purchased lots 130 ($41,000) and 135 ($78,000), the latter a Captaintreacherous colt out of The Baggy Green, a winner of $108,700 in race stakes, whose dam was multiple Breeders Crown winner Lady Waratah. The Kiwis were also prevalent. Mark Purdon snapped up a Bettors Delight colt, out of Arivee, for $45,000 and an Art Major filly, out of Almihata, for $25,000. And Cran Dalgety spent $60,000 on a Bettors Delight colt, out of Breeze On Bronski, and $70,000 on a Bettors Delight filly out of Glenferrie Diva, who is a half-sister to Foreclosure ($807,746).   Michael Howard for Trots Media

The success of the first racing crop of the former NZ and Australian 2YO Colt of the Year Follow The Stars is grist for the mill for the Port Pirie Harness Racing Club. The Club has nominated two superbly bred colts by the Art Major horse for Sunday’s Allwood Stud Farm South Australian Yearling Sale at the Magic Millions, Morphettville. “They’re both really nice types who have been very well reared. I like both of them. They are very easy to get along with,” preparer Pam Hayter, the partner of prominent trainer Lane Johnson, said. Follow The Stars, who stands at Allwood Stud Farm, Bullsbrook (WA), has sired a winner and five placegetters from seven two-year-old starters to date. The first of the Port Pirie consignment, Lot 5, is out of the Perfect Art mare Reign’s Daughter, whose dam, Viking Reign, was one of the best fillies ever produced in Queensland. She won 26 races including the QBred Triad twice and $132,125 in stakes and at the stud left nine including the Queensland Christmas Cup winner Monty Reign, Spirit Of Reign (Racing Minister’s Cup) and the $124,000 earner Maker Reign. The colt boasts a desirable 3x3 cross to Artsplace and carries the blood of top producer Perfect Profile on both sides of his pedigree. Lot 37 is a colt from the unraced Four Flash Pennies, a daughter of the outstanding NSW racemare of the 1990’s, Four Penny Dark. She won 31 races – 10 at Group/Listed level – including the Bathurst Gold Tiara, the NSW Sires Stakes 2YO and 4YO Finals, NSW Princess Mile and J. L. Raith Memorial and $300,174. Both colts are eligible for Vicbred, Southern Cross and The Allwood. Catalogues for the sale are available from Globe Derby Park, Port Pirie, all other SA country tracks, Tabcorp Park Melton and Tabcorp Park Menangle.

The APG Sale at Melbourne on Sunday resulted in a great result for the vendors and buyers, as well as the Victorian Harness Racing Industry overall. With two horses making $100,000 plus and 28 lots bringing $50,000 or more, the average price of around $32,700 was up 16% overall on last year's sale. Seven of the top ten priced horses ($70,000 plus) were by Somebeachsomewhere or his son Captaintreacherous. The other three horses sold in that group were by Art Major, American Ideal or Bettor's Delight. The top vendor of the day was Durham Park who sold 14 of 16 lots for a total of $626,000 including the top two lots. Interesting was the fact that both top price yearlings were from USA bred mares. Top price of the day was $130,000 for Lot 229, a Somebeachsomewhere colt from the race winning USA mare Ideal Priority (Western Ideal) making this colt a full brother to the super race mare Petacular ($454,083). Durham Park was the vendor and Tom Hogan was the buyer. This colt is to be trained by Emma Stewart. Lot 229 a Somebeachsomewhere colt from Ideal Priority The second top price paid $120,000 was for Lot 221 an Art Major filly from another USA mare, Hawiian Hottie (American Ideal) making this filly a full sister to Australian Breeders Crown Champion, Kualoa ($159,090). Hawiian Hottie is a half-sister to many winners including super race horse in North America, Maltese Artist 1:48.3f ($2,322,671). Durham Park was the vendor and Chaulaus Investments was the buyer. Lot 221 an Art Major filly from Hawiian Hottie American buyers Marc Hanover and Gordon Banks secured two horses, lot 135 for $78,000 a Captaintreacherous colt from the good race winning mare The Baggy Green and Lot 130 for $41,000 an American Ideal filly from USA mare Tamara Hall making this filly a full sister to Ideal For Real ($324,600) who won the NSW Derby.

The dominant influence of New Zealand-bred standardbreds during the harness racing season 2017-18 has astute buyers looking to the upcoming APG yearling sales to capitalise on the rich Kiwi bloodlines. New Zealand’s standardbred nursery continues to punch well above its weight both at home and across the ditch, with both pacing and trotting horses raiding the Australian treasure chest during the past season. It’s prompting astute buyers to look at the APG Yearling sales as an “at home” option to tap into the next generation of Kiwi bloodstock. Let’s look at season 2017-2018 in Australia; and we see, incredibly, New Zealand bred standardbreds, incredibly, have accounted for: 14 individual New Zealand-bred Group One winners claimed twenty-two Group One pacing features in Australia Five individual New Zealand-bred trotters claimed a Group One feature in Australia Kiwi horses claimed 32% of all eligible Group One races in Australia Kiwi pacers were a dominant force claiming 71% of all combined eligible Group One races in Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales Kiwi trotters triumphed in 19% of all Group One features in Victoria New Zealand standardbreds laid claim to 41% of all stakes races in Australia Nearly half (47%) of all pacing eligible stakes races in Australia were won by New Zealand-breds 50% of all trotting stakes races in Queensland last season were claimed by kiwi horses New Zealand was the leading source of eligible Group One winners in  Western Australia & New South Wales New Zealand-bred horses won 91% of all eligible pacing Group One races in  Western Australia 10 of the 16 eligible pacing stakes races in Queensland were won by New Zealand-bred horses  67% of all eligible pacing stakes races in Western Australia were claimed by kiwi horses 59% of all combined eligible pacing stakes races in Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales were won by New Zealand-breds Lazarus, Ultimate Machete, Franco Edward and Let It Ride all achieved Group One doubles in Australia This year’s APG Sales provide an unprecedented opportunity for Australian buyers to tap into the NZ bloodlines, with 153 of the 627 lots on offer from New Zealand bred mares. If second-dams are included in these sales that number increases to 234 of the lots on offer from New Zealand bred mares or grand-dams of the 627 lots on offer.

Catalogues for the 2017 Ladbrokes APG Yearling Sales are now available, and every indicator points towards this crop of harness racing yearlings being another outstanding crop. “Put simply, the 2017 Ladbrokes APG Sales Catalogue features siblings to more $100,000+ winners and the progeny of more $100,000+ earning dams than any previous Sales Catalogue,” explained David Boydell, APG’s General Manager. And in a boost for the sales, APG has increased the prizemoney for its two-year-old finals from $322,000 to $350,000 and tinkered with the qualifying conditions to enable horses to qualify for the $350,000 without having to leave their home state. Under the new format, heats will be conducted in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia, with heat winners progressing straight through to the $350,000 Final.  Other heat runners will still have the opportunity to qualify for the final via a repechage, while horses that fail to progress to the $350,000 finals will have the opportunity to nominate for $30,000 consolation finals in their home state (NSW & Victoria to host both colts & fillies consolations, while Queensland & WA will host mixed sex consolations). As if that wasn’t enough, there will also be stand-alone sales races attached to the Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne Autumn Sales, collectively adding over $400,000 to the prize pool available for graduates of the Ladbrokes APG Yearling Sales. Art Major, who has been in the headlines this week as the sire of sensational 3yo winner, Vincent, who broke the NZ record for the 2700m standing start, is blessed with perhaps his strongest ever crop of yearlings.  In total, he has 80 progeny catalogued for the upcoming sales, 20 of which hail from $100,000+ winning dams, and 20 of which are half-brothers or sisters to $100,000+ earners such as Our Waikiki Beach ($793,319), Lettucerockthem ($698,258), Ima Spicey Lombo ($483,686) and Beauty Secret ($425,921). Other sires with 20 or more progeny in the sales include Sportswriter (52), Rock N Roll Heaven (47), A Rocknroll Dance (44), Bettors Delight (44), Mach Three (38), Pet Rock (32), Mr Feelgood (27), Auckland Reactor (21) and Roll With Joe (21). Catalogues are due to be dispatched by priority post on January 5 to the majority of trainers, as well as anyone that has registered to bid at the APG sales in recent years, however, anyone else that is interested in ordering a 2017 sales catalogue can do so by clicking here.

One thing in harness racing in Australasia has remained pretty constant  in the last thirty years and that is the influence of the champion broodmare Black Watch on the yearling sales in New Zealand. Her descendants have continued  to churn out the topliners year after year and while other maternal families have their day in the sun every now and again, Black Watch is still the benchmark by which maternal families in New Zealand are judged against. Sandy Yarndley has long since retired to the background but his wonder mare has kept him in the spotlight for close to thirty years. Every year there are numerous yearlings consigned to the sales that trace back to Black Watch and without fail each crop produces that elite level colt or filly. Last year it was the brilliant two year old Kate Perry 1:56.7 ($378,478) who kept up the long term trend that Black Watch started. These days Black Watch is starting to drop down to the fourth or fifth generation of a lot of the yearlings for sale but one yearling  at this years Australasian Classic Sale who does have her close up in his pedigree is Lot 89, Nova's Delight. Nova's Delight has Black Watch as his third dam and for good measure he has the best daughter of Black Watch in Aberfeldy as his second dam. Both of these two mares have won the Broodmare Excellence award over the years and they are responsible for a lot of this families major winners. The dam of Nova's Delight is the Dream Away daughter of Aberfeldy in Milagro  who has already produced the filly Christian Miracle 1:55.2 ($47,539) and Fusion Power 1:56.2 ($30,312) as well as this years smart three year old filly Better Rose 1:59.7 who ran third to the brilliant Linda Lovegrace 1:54.4 ($163,878) in a Sires Stakes heat in December. Better Rose is a full sister to this years yearling Nova's Delight. Black Watch has created such a successful family that you sometimes feel it must start to wane eventually. What the results show is that this family continues to evolve and strengthen and you can be sure there is a jewel or two amongst her offspring this year. Harnesslink Media

Throughout December 2014 and January 2015, Harness Racing Victoria Stewards and veterinarians have been collecting out of competition blood samples from yearlings scheduled to be sold at the upcoming Australian Pacing Gold (APG) Sales in Melbourne on Sunday 1 February 2015. Samples have been collected from approximately 1/3 of the 210 lots to be sold at the sales. All blood samples collected have been subjected to testing by Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) on their newly expanded steroid screening test, which covers over 40 targets, and is understood to be the most comprehensive screening test in operation in Australia. RASL report that all of the analysed samples are clear of steroids. HRV wish to acknowledge the significant support of APG in assisting HRV’s efforts to ensure compliance with the national harness racing rules, introduced in May 2014, which banned the use of steroids at all times.  Harness Racing Victoria
