NZB Standardbred’s class of 2019 will take important steps towards the inaugural running of the lucrative Harness Million Sale Race Series when they take to the track across New Zealand this weekend.  All eyes will be on star colt Krug (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight) when he steps out, alongside a host of his fellow National Yearling Sale graduates in a heat of the Garrard's Sires Stakes Series (1700m) at Alexandra Park on Thursday night. The $155,000 Christchurch purchase swept all before him before the national lockdown hit and has continued that brilliant form with three sensational wins for trainers Nathan Purdon and Chrissie Dalgety since racing resumed in June. The Bettor’s Delight pacer, from former star racemare Champagne Princess (NZ) (Soky’s Atom), goes in to Thursday night’s race after confirming his star status by downing his arch rival It’s All About Faith (NZ) (Captaintreacherous) at Addington. Purdon told media this week Krug should strip a fitter horse for that outing when he starts on Thursday night. Krug’s tricky barrier 12 draw gives his key rivals American Dealer (NZ) (American Ideal) and Hot And Treacherous (NZ) (Captaintreacherous) an excellent chance to test him and boost their prospects ahead of the $200,000 Listed NZB Standardbred Harness Million 2YO Colts & Geldings (2200m) for last season’s two-year-olds held at Alexandra Park on 25 September. The Ray Green trained American Dealer comes in to Thursday night’s race after ducking and diving his way to a good win over older horses at Alexandra Park last month. The Brian and Gareth Hughes trained Hot And Treacherous, who starts from barrier 6, comes in to Friday night’s race after running strong wins in two of just three career starts. The All Stars quartet of NZB Standardbred National Yearling Sale graduates in Delightful Dude (Bettor’s Delight), Nevada (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight), Stag Party (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight), and Aladdin (NZ) (Sweet Lou) add depth to Thursday night’s exciting race. It’s All About Faith will also continue his build up towards the NZB Standardbred Harness Million in a minor event at Addington on Friday night. Though beaten, the Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen trained pacer was far from disgraced in his last meeting with Krug when running scintillating sectionals in his second placing. The three-year-old should dispatch a lower grade field with ease on Friday night. Despite her brilliant deeds before lockdown, Passion And Power (NZ) (Art Major) has not yet been rated the favourite in betting for the inaugural $150,000 Listed NZB Standardbred Harness Million for (last season’s) 2YO Fillies (1980m) at Addington on October 12. That could quickly change when the Robert Dunn trained pacer lines up in heat two of the Magness Benrow NZ Sires’ Stakes Series (1980m) for 3YO Fillies Pace at the same track on Friday night. Dunn told media this week the filly was fit and ready for her first post-lockdown assignment after having three workouts. Starting from barrier 2, Passion And Power has a major draw advantage over the current favourite for the NZB Standardbred Harness Million fillies race in La Rosa (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight). The speedy Mark Jones trained filly must overcome starting from the outside of the front line comes in Friday night’s race. La Rosa comes in to the event after running third to a serious contender for the 2YO colts and gelding’s division of the Harness Million series in Shan Noble (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight). La Rosa has made her way to the top of early betting for the Harness Million 2YO Fillies’ event by showing plenty of high speed in four placings from just four starts. Passion And Power and La Rosa will clash with several Harness Million aspirants in Braeview Kelly (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight), Get Back (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight) and Avana (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight). Harness Million Series 1 eligible graduates will also have the opportunity to contest their three-year-old races set to be ran in the new year. The incentive scheme incorporates an easy one-time qualifying fee and one-off entry fee, with a total combined purse of $1 million to be raced for.   Garrard's Sires Stakes Heat 3 Pace for 3YO Colts & Geldings Pace (1700m) Thursday 3 September HORSE DRAW DRIVER TRAINER American Dealer   1 David Butcher Ray Green Captain Nemo   2 Andre Poutama Ray Green Delightful Dude   3 Brent Mangos Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen General Montana   4 Zachary Butcher Barry Purdon & Scott Phelan Cya Art   5 Shane Butcher Steve & Amanda Telfer Hot And Treacherous   6 Maurice McKendry Brian & Gareth Hughes Alta Wiseguy   7 Benjamin Butcher Steve & Amanda Telfer Nevada   8 Joshua Dickie Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen Stag Party   9 Natalie Rasmussen Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen Wavethebill   10 Todd Mitchell Derek Balle Aladdin   11 Mark Purdon Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen Krug   12 Blair Orange Nathan Purdon & Chrissie Dalgety   Magness Benrow NZ Sires Stakes Series for 3YO Fillies Pace (1980m) Friday 4 September HORSE DRAW DRIVER TRAINER Lifes A Beach   1 Sheree Tomlinson (J) Tony Barron Passion And Power   2 John Dunn Robert Dunn Darling Me   3 Mark Purdon Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen Bettor Twist   4 Tim Williams Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen Itz To The Macs   5     Braeview Kelly   6 Blair Orange Tony Stratford Ariella   7 Robbie Close Dean Taylor What's Your Secret   8 Natalie Rasmussen Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen La Rosa   9 Samantha Ottley Mark Jones Get Back   10 Jim Curtin Murray Edmonds Avana   11 Olivia Thornley (J) Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen   NZB Standardbred

For so many great harness racing people, it’s amazing to think it’s almost 12 months since the running last year’s event “2019 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE” that attracted so much attention and excitement for the sport.  The tremendous news is that the 2020 version promises to much bigger and more appealing due to the fact we taken a massive 195 entries this time. With the positive seasonal conditions in most harness racing heartlands in 2020, we are certainly optimistic about the year ahead. When we spoke to a loyal and active breeder in Central Western NSW this week he told us, “this is shaping up as the best season we have ever experienced at this property and for the first time in years we can look at investing into and adding to our breeding stocks.  Modelling suggests that NSW farmers will be able to cut a large volume of good hay and the big grain producers are delighted with the possibilities and prospects of potential massive harvests come later this year.” The positivity is welcomed into the sport at this time and it’s not just restricted to NSW breeders. We also heard today from one of Victoria’s leading trainers/breeders who put it this way, “this online catalogue has exceeded my expectation with 195 lots and I’ve already sent dozens of text messages asking questions on the ones that tick boxes for our family.” The enquiries for the weanlings have been very strong and why wouldn’t they with weanlings by sales favourites like, Always B Miki, American Ideal Art Major and the North American star Captaintreacherous. Also of note is the truly wonderful mare families that are available in this sale. We have some magnificent representation from the very best Australian and New Zealand families and the depth in the North American families is astonishing.

Purchasing Standardbred horses, either privately or at an auction like the up and coming 2020 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE, at one stage in their lives and then reselling them at another stage for profit is considered a pinhook!  The APG National Mixed Sales has thrown up some truly incredible stories of financial gain for the astute investors following the strategy of buying low and selling high.  As was the case with the $16,000 purchase of Lot 16 from our 2019 National Mixed Sale that went on to sell for $50,000 in our 2020 Sydney Yearling. Exceptional profits like this are not uncommon, so don’t think they are restricted to NSW pinhookers. Not so long ago another loyal and much loved APG client from Victoria purchased a weanling for $25,000 and serveral months later sold the same horse for $100,000 in the APG Melbourne sale.  While I acknowledge a solid understanding of the value of the weanling is paramount before jumping in and buying up a large number of weanlings in the 2020 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE, what is clear, is that success stories from the people that have put in effort doing their research, can give enormous encouragement for the smaller consignors looking to build their team of yearlings for the up and coming 2021 APG yearling sales. Please note that all weanlings purchased in 2020 APG National Mixed Sale will have a short window to enter them for the APG 2021 Yearlings Sales.  Although the financial gain is one of their key drivers for pinhooking, another angle is the opportunity for the well-researched followers of breeding patterns to display a canny knack of identifying horses that have a better chance of delivering above normal levels of prosperity on the track.  One quick example would be Border Control who was himself pinhooked and sold through the APG system for $50,000. This son of Bettors Delight who is out of the Artsplace mare Contrapan, has gone on to have a magnificent career for his connections by wining north of $750,000.  What is also abundantly clear is the pleasure you have a chance to witness working these beautiful young weanlings as they grow and develop into something spectacular in such a short amount of time. Shown is a great example (from last year’s 2019 National Mixed Sale to the 2020 Sydney’s Yearling Sale, just months later) of how these 35 weanlings available in this sale could potentially blossom.

Australian Pacing Gold would like to thank all the remarkable breeders, owners and consignors that have come forward to support the recording breaking  2020 APG National Mixed Sale that is about to kick off. Many APG clients/partners are of the view a successful APG National Mixed Sale that supports consignors and investors/breeders looking to strengthen their breeding operation is crucial for the sport going forward. The 2020 APG National Mixed Sale, which will be operated similarly to an Ebay style auction (with the added backing of a help desk), provides the safest and most cost-effective way to trade some of the very finest standardbred families available in this country. APG is thrilled to announce all categories of horses have been accepted into the sale, including broodmares, racehorses, yearlings, and weanlings. APG has been entrusted with a whopping 195 entries (a record for an APG online sale) which promises to give even most conscientious buyers a marvellous representation from the leading sires and broodmare sires available in the sport today, with some from the best families currently racing throughout the Southern Hemisphere. What’s also exceptionally  pleasing is the spread of lots across the different states. When we spoke to Linda Graham (a very successful industry participant and new team member of APG ) she said: "The strength of the sale entries is really pleasing to see, and with these exceptional horses we are forecasting some very spirited bidding. The tremendous news for buyers is that the majority of horses have very reasonable reserves. These low reserves are simply the result of consignors understanding the best way to sell their lots is to put them up for genuine sale with little or no reserves". APG has been commissioned to offer a large draft from some of the best breeders in the country and it can’t wait for the sale to begin. Investors, breeders and owners looking to strengthen their stocks should register early (we will have updates, once the online registrations open this coming Monday at 1pm) for this wonderful event  which will run from Wednesday August 5 through to about 6pm on Sunday August 9. APG will be able to update all investors on the best ways of moving new purchasers interstate.
