NZB Standardbred has announced a revised schedule for their National Standardbred Yearling Sale held in Auckland and Christchurch from Saturday 13 to Wednesday 17 February 2021. The refreshed schedule will allow international buyers to actively participate at a local time that is beneficial for them, and accommodate the bumper catalogue of entries received. “Our main focus is to ensure that our schedule fits in with our international buying bench and provide them with the optimum time to purchase,” said NZB Director and Operations Manager James Jennings. “Our domestic buying bench will also be just as important as ever and we will be working with them in the preceding months to ensure they are able to inspect as many horses as possible.” “We believe a number of them will be called upon by their Australian counterparts to act on their behalf.” “We have been extremely pleased by the support we have received from vendors and owners with the catalogue this year and look forward to hosting another successful Sale in January,” Jennings said. NZB Standardbred has taken into account the unlikely prospects of the borders opening in the first half of next year. “While both New Zealand and Australia are working hard to get on top of COVID-19, the landscape has changed significantly in the last six months,” said NZB Standardbred’s Cam Bray. “Although it is everyone’s hope that trans-Tasman travel becomes a reality, we have to plan for the situation to remain unchanged,” he said. Parent company New Zealand Bloodstock’s recent announcement regarding the build of their new online bidding platform, adapted from their proven online auction subsidiary gavelhouse.com, describes the access buyers will have to a real-time stream of the sale broadcast and ability to bid with ease from laptops, tablets or mobile phone devices. “The market is now much more receptive to online bidding as the results of the All Age Sale attested,” Jennings said.    “Technology will play a large role in the Sale next year and we are looking forwarded to the completion of our online bidding system which will be thoroughly tested in operation at preceding sales.” “We will have of course the advantage of having all of our domestic buying bench at the sales, so it is another level up from an online sale.” NZB Standardbred’s National Yearling Sale revised the sales format as follows: Auckland Sale to be held at Karaka: Parade Day on Saturday 13 February from 1pm to 4pm (NZT).  The Sale of both Trotters and Pacers on Sunday 14 February commencing at 12pm (NZT). Christchurch Sale to be held at Canterbury Agricultural Park: Parade & Sale of Trotters on Monday 15 February. Parade at 1pm (NZT) with the Sale starting at 3pm (NZT).  The sale of the Pacers will be conducted on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 February commencing at 1pm (NZT) each day. Parades will be held from 10am (NZT) of the horses to be offered on each prospective day. For more information about the 2021 National Standardbred Yearling Sale dates and format, contact the NZB Standardbred team here. The 2021 National Standardbred Yearling Sale catalogue will be online and arrive in letterboxes late November.   NZB Standardbred

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.
