Bidding was as hot as the weather during today’s Ladbrokes Australian Pacing Gold Sale as the harness racing industry leader once again lifted its average. With a terrific clearance rate, the sale’s average was $34,360 up from $27,929 in 2016. A break down reveals the colts sold for an average bid of $38,891, an increase from last year’s $30,444, while the fillies lifted from $23,589 12 months ago to $25,660 this time around. Pleased with the figures, APG’s General Manager David Boydell stated the bids reflected the quality of the stock on offer throughout the afternoon. “This year’s sale had so many outstanding types go through the ring, which led to some spirited bidding,” Boydell said. “To have the average for both colts and fillies increase from last year is a very pleasing result for all involved.” As for the top end of the spectrum, Lot 100 was the sale topper, with Emilio and Maria Stride Pty Ltd parting with $200,000 for the colt. By siring sensation Art Major, the youngster is from former handy performer Cyclone Betty, which just happens to be the dam of Our Waikiki Beach! Our Waikiki Beach is by Somebeachsomewhere. Clients of astute horseman Jarrod Alchin paid $70,000 for the top filly, which entered the ring as Lot 117. By Bettor's Delight, the leggy maiden is from Group One winning mare Glenferrie Shuffle, which was retired with 13 wins and 16 placings from 39 starts for earnings of $279,839. This is Glenferrie Shuffle’s first foal. Australian Pacing Gold's next sale will be in Sydney on February 26.

Widely regarded for having a ‘good eye’ for harness racing horseflesh, power couple Emma Stewart and Clayton Tonkin are gearing up for Sunday’s Australian Pacing Gold Sale. While we can’t reveal which yearlings the pair are looking to secure, Tonkin has shared their routine as they prepare for the bidding wars. Stewart and Tonkin captured the colts’ and geldings’ division of last season’s APG race series with unbeaten freshman The Storm Inside. The colt’s APG graduate stablemate, Our Little General, was then triumphant in the Australasian Breeders’ Crown. Stating the obvious about a potential purchase’s immediate family, Tonkin explained a yearling’s maternal ancestry is also a key factor. “Naturally if they are related to a star you have a good look at them, but a good maternal family going back is very important,” Tonkin said. “Once we’ve studied that part of the equation, and selected the ones we are interested in, the next stage is to have a look at them in person.” Having already conducted their inspections during the past few weeks, Tonkin stated every possible movement, along with conformation, is monitored. “It’s more than just how good they look standing there,” Tonkin said. “Yes confirmation is high on the list, but watching them move in a paddock offers a few insights to them as well. “Going over them ahead of the sale, and watching them move, can really point you in the right direction.” As mentioned, breeding is close to ‘a must’, but Tonkin surprisingly listed the breeder and/or preparer as another decision-making aspect. “We take into account who is preparing the yearling as well,” Tonkin said. “If the yearling is coming from someone renowned for having them ready for sales, then it just gives you that much more confidence. “There are so many things to consider and hopefully that increases the odds of getting the right ones.” by APG Media

How would you like to own a close relative to one of the most exciting harness racing pacers in the Southern Hemisphere? Along with boasting 20 wins and four placings from 24 starts for earnings of $1,532,504, the star in question is also the raging $1.40 favourite for Saturday night’s Victoria Cup at Melton! If you haven’t guessed the multiple Group One winner, it is boom four-year-old Lazarus. But how do you own a member of his family? That answer is even simpler…via Australian Pacing Gold. APG’s Ladbrokes Melbourne Sale features a filly which can be best described as Lazarus’ cousin. By popular stallion Sportswriter, the yearling is from Idle Spirit, which is a Grinfromeartoear half-sister to Bethany, the dam of Lazarus. The family also includes Stars And Stripes, Light And Sound, Spirit Of Zeus, Davy Maguire, Our Crown Lady, Spiritual King and United We Stand. Bred by and prepared by Benstud, the filly will enter the ring as lot 128 at the Inglis Sales Complex, Oaklands Road, Oaklands Junction on February 5. For all details of the sale click on this link.

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 5 February 2017. All blood samples collected have been subjected to testing by Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) on their steroid screening test, which covers over 40 substances, 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.

East Rutherford, NJ ---Harness racing trainer Tony Alagna signed the ticket for the sales topper at Monday's Tattersalls January Select Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands, and it won't take the trainer much time to get familiar with the horse. Alagna purchased Dr J Hanover for $280,000. Dr J Hanover, a 4-year-old gelded pacer, spent his first two years in Alagna's stable, winning eight of 19 races and earning $326,773. The majority of Dr J Hanover's success came last year at Yonkers Raceway, where he won six times. On the Grand Circuit, he finished third in the Messenger Stakes, Little Brown Jug, and a division of the Tattersalls Pace. In addition, Alagna bought 4-year-old pacing stallion American Passport for $135,000. American Passport also raced in Alagna's stable at ages 2 and 3, winning five of 27 races and earning $314,656. The two horses were sold as part of dissolving partnerships. "Some partners wanted out, some wanted to stay in; we'll wait until the dust settles and see who's staying in," Alagna said. "It will be new partnerships put together for both horses." One of the new partners on both horses will be Canada's Brad Grant. "Brad and I have had great luck," Alagna said. "He bought Wake Up Peter from me, he bought Sandbetweenurtoes, Revenge Shark, Witch Dali; he's had a great run with horses that we've had. These fit what Brad is looking for. They'll be nice horses for the 4-year-old year." Dr J Hanover, named in honor of Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky, the farm manager at Hanover Shoe Farms, was purchased as a yearling under the name Stepenwolf Hanover for $300,000 at the 2014 Standardbred Horse Sale. He is a son of stallion Somebeachsomewhere out of the stakes-winning mare So Perfect and his family includes stakes-winners Perfectionist, Lifetime Member and Copywriter as well as millionaire Image Of Dawn. Alagna will target the George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series at Yonkers for Dr J Hanover's first test. "He's back training," Alagna said. "We gave him a nice proper break, so he'll be ready for the Levy if everything goes well. We'll play it by ear. If he's getting beat up in the Levy we won't continue and we'll get him freshened up and get him ready for the 4-year-old restricted races. "With the way the races are, and the money they're going for at Yonkers, and if you have a horse that's a half-mile track specialist, why not? Dr J Hanover got so good on the half, and that made him a horse. You normally don't find that. He learned to leave the gate fast." American Passport is a son of American Ideal out of the mare Star Of The Show. He sold as a yearling for $29,000 under the name Rose Run Rascal at the 2014 Standardbred Horse Sale. His mother is a half-sister to both Ideal Treasure, who is the dam of 2015 Canadian Horse of the Year State Treasurer, and stakes-winner Ideal Matters. The family also includes world champion Hit Parade. "I like his speed," Grant said. "He's a very fast horse. I think he's got a lot of upside ahead of him. He's lightly raced. I really think he's got a lot of racing ahead of him." Grant purchased last year's top seller at the January sale, trotter Lindy's Tru Grit, for $125,000. He also purchased then 3-year-old Easy Lover Hanover, who capped last season by winning the Progress Pace, for $70,000. "Brad's already got Easy Lover (Hanover)," Alagna said. "He's got (multiple) opportunities to race for good money in the 4-year-old restricted (races). We'll do the right thing and get American Passport ready for the 4-year-old year. I'm not going to rush him to be ready for the Levy because I don't think he's ready to do that yet. But he's got a lot of upside. "There are a lot of 4-year-old restricted races and then by midseason hopefully he can step up. There's no (Horse of the Year) Always B Miki, no Racing Hill, no Betting Line. You take a lot of horses out of the mix, so he's got a shot to make some serious money." A total of eight horses sold for at least $100,000 at this year's sale, compared to two horses last year. Following Dr J Hanover on the list was 4-year-old pacing stallion Gerries Sport, who was purchased for $145,000 by trainer Josh Green as agent. Last year, Gerries Sport won five of 20 races and earned $187,978 while racing for trainer Richard Moreau. He finished second to Betting Line in the Ontario Sire Stakes championship. Multiple-stakes-winner Katies Rocker, a 4-year-old gelded pacer with $405,069 in career purses, sold for $140,000 to Howard Taylor. The horse raced for trainer Jim Campbell at ages 2 and 3. In addition to the eight horses to top $100,000 this year, 4-year-old pacer Western Fame and 4-year-old trotter Lagerfeld were each hammered down for more than $200,000, but neither reached his reserve price. Cinamony, a 6-year-old mare pacer, was the top seller among the ladies, going for $90,000 to Mark Mullen of Fair Winds Farm. Mullen plans to breed the mare, who won 25 of 89 races and earned $532,404 in her career. Cinamony is a half-sister to stakes-winner Fear The Dragon and her second dam is Dan Patch Award-winner Mattaroni. "She had a good record and she was racy looking," Mullen said. "Mattaroni is a pretty nice family." Below are the top sellers from Monday's sale.

The supplement catalog and updated racelines booklet for Monday's Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale are now available on the Tattersalls website and on the Equineline Sales Catalog app for the iPad.   The January Mixed is billed as the "Winter Racehorse Market" and the 2017 renewal remains true to form. Of the 258 head in the catalog and supplement, close to 200 are racehorses and racing prospects.   "As of Monday (Jan. 10), racehorses in the sale posted 23 wins in just the last two weeks," said sale manager David Reid. "Like always, there are horses racing at every level and coming in from everywhere, but this year buyers will notice that the sale is extremely strong in 2017 4-year-olds," he added.   Those horses include a number of prominent stakes winners from last season, perhaps the most notable among them Breeders Crown elim and Jug elim winner Western Fame p,3,1:50.1h ($453,674), Art Rooney winner Missile J p,3,1:51 ($313,902) and NJSS Final winner Katies Rocker p,3,1:50.3 ($405,069).   Other 4-year-olds certainly on buyers' radar are multiple stakes winners Lagerfeld 3,1:53.2f ($668,621), Dr J Hanover p,3,1:50.1f ($326,773) and Gerries Sport p,3,1:49.2 ($217,246).   "Seven of the 4-year-olds in the sale have each earned more than $300,000, so for those in the market for open class and top-condition horses, they'll fit the bill," Reid said.   The sale will get underway in the Meadowlands back paddock at 11 a.m. on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Horses will be in and available for inspection either on Sunday, Jan. 15, or the morning of the sale.   First paragraph "supplement catalog" links to:   First paragraph "updated racelines booklet" links to:   Tattersalls Sales Co.  

Tattersalls Sales Co. reminds harness racing horsemen that entries for the main catalog for the Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale will close Monday, Dec. 5. The popular winter sale will be held in the back paddock at the Meadowlands on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 16. Sale manager David Reid said that despite the racehorse population not being what it used to be, the numbers for the mixed sales that are held at the Meadowlands have continued to stay strong, and he expects the January sale to hold true to form. “There are two ways to look at the shortage of racehorses,” he said. “On the one hand, there are plenty of racing opportunities and purses are strong, so many find it hard to part with a good horse. “But on the other hand, that smaller population of racehorses has sent demand through the roof when a good one does go to auction. Nearly every horse that sells these days--that’s competitive and winning--brings every penny it’s worth, and many times a whole lot more.” With breeding season just around the corner, the sale has also become a target for those selling race fillies, in-foal broodmares and stallion shares. “Our ‘Magnificent Mares’ section has really picked again recently, and we expect that trend to continue,” Reid said. “With the yearling market like it was this last fall, there’s big money to be made selling high-end fillies and mares.”

The format of the upcoming harness racing Garrards Horse and Hound Ready2Run Sale in Sydney is reverting back to how it has always been run. Official time-trials will be held at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Sunday November 27, 2016, and shortly after the auction will take place. Directors of the New South Wales Standardbred Sales had announced they were changing the format by conducting the time-trials two weeks prior to the Sale but this has been changed according to Chairman Peter Green. "We have made the decision to revert back to how the trial was previously run and have the Sale component on the same day," Green said. "We will accept late entries and if any vendor or preparer that would like to put a video up of heir horse or horses they need to contact Karen Kemp." Karen can be contacted at   AMANDA RANDO

There are 47 2-year-olds in the sale that include a number of winners and stakes caliber youngsters, as well as some that are just getting their racing careers underway. “That number of 2-year-olds is the most we’ve sold in the spring or summer. Horsemen should take a good look at them, as they’re going to be impressed at their overall quality and the strength of their pedigrees,” Reid said. Tattersalls Sales Co.

Harness Racing Victoria’s (HRV) Pryde’s Easifeed Australasian Premier Trotting Sale (APTS) and the Australian Pacing Gold (APG) Melbourne Autumn Sale will be conducted on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at Inglis, Oaklands Junction. This will be the first year the APTS has been held away from Tabcorp Park Melton. “The move to Oaklands Junction will provide opportunities for further growth in sales numbers as well as providing a superior and safer experience for horses, vendors and buyers,” HRV CEO John Anderson said. APG will also work with HRV to conduct a race exclusively for pacing yearlings catalogued for the Melbourne Autumn Sale and presented in the ring on April 2. “The Pryde’s Easifeed Australasian Premier Trotting Sale continues to grow and develop since its inception in 2013, coinciding with the terrific racing opportunities that exist for trotters in Victoria,” Mr Anderson said. “We believe it is an important step that the Australian Pacing Gold Autumn Sale and the APTS be run at the same venue on April 2 next year to create a high-quality catalogue of trotters and pacers, which will no doubt carry great appeal for buyers both locally and abroad. Oaklands Junction is a dedicated sales complex which provides a great environment for buyers and allows vendors to present their yearlings in the best possible condition.” APG General Manager David Boydell said: “I’m thrilled to see APG’s Melbourne Autumn Sale and the Pryde’s Easifeed Australasian Premier Trotting Sale sharing the same sales date and venue.  I’m confident that the new format will be warmly received by both vendors and buyers, and should result in increased attendance and a more vibrant atmosphere. I’m also really excited about HRV’s commitment to work with APG to develop a standalone race exclusively for graduates of APG’s Autumn Pacing Sale.  I have no doubt that this new Sales Race will help to attract buyers and drive demand for Autumn Pacing Sale yearlings.” Trots Media

Yesterday marked the 1st leg of the Annual Autumn Weanling and All Age Sale, which was held at the Canterbury Agricultural Park. With a clearance rate of 91% and several handy lots reaching good figures, the sale has been deemed a success by most people involved. While the well bred weanlings, yearlings and mare sold well as expected, other's struggled to get bids, or were basically given away for less then their service fee. The question has to be asked, is it time to move the sale online? With the evolution of the internet and auction sites like Trademe and EBay, maybe it’s time some of our smaller auctions were shifted online. Keep the Yearlings Sales as live auctions, because nothing beats seeing legendary auctioneers like Steve Davis work the crowd for bids, plus with the large number of yearlings it would create chaos. But for smaller auctions like these, surely it is possible to move them online. With most vendors already providing a different range of photos and videos and a raft of different information available, would it be such a big issue to sit down at your computer or jump on your phone and bid? Feel free to comment your thoughts below. Take a look at for all of yesterday’s sale results. Andrew Fitzgerald
