Elite pedigrees combined with professional horse people
An illustrious record of success in both the sale ring and on the racetrack has been witnessed since the first New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sale draft presented by Valachi Downs in 2008. A record high Select Sale price of $300,000 was set by the stud that year with a colt by Scaredee Cat out of Valachi Downs’ mare My Kinda Girl.
Shortly after, in 2011 and 2012, two Derby winners brought the stud to the fore. Valachi Downs raised and prepared Group 1 Australian Derby winner Shamrocker on behalf of clients and she made $65,000 as a Select Sale yearling.
