Lot 305 : Perfectly Ready - Country Rose Colt sells for $100,000
21 Nov 2014
It's always very exciting when you initially consider the mating of a foal, and as a day old foal you start to see the potential from that combination of the dam and sire of what he may grow in to! This was certainly the case for us yesterday at the New Zealand Bloodstock Two-Year-Old Ready to Run Sale.
His dam Country Rose by Centaine won a Group 3, Group 1 & Group 2 placed and eight wins, combined with our stunning black stallion, Australian Group 1 winner Perfectly Ready, the combination that you were hoping for was a rich dark coloured athletic looking individual. Lot 305 delivered all that we had hoped for.
This colt had taken the eye of Mr. I. Hartono a successful businessman from Indonesia, with his Singapore based Agent Eion Sullivan, he fort off an exciting bidding war to purchased the colt for $100,000.
It was such a thrill and made us very proud of our sire Perfectly Ready, to see in the ring such a stunning individual, and we wish his new owners all the very best of luck with him, and wish to thank all the under-bidders too. It was a very special day for the farm.
Country Rose has returned to Perfectly Ready this season, and has a very attractive Azamour colt at foot!
