2024 National Online Yearling Sale Entries Open
13 February 2024
The catalogue will be available to view online from Wednesday 3 April, with bidding set to open on Friday 12 April and close from 6pm (NZT) on Wednesday 17 April.
A significant benefit of the digital catalogue is that all lots offered in the National Online Yearling Sale are eligible to be nominated for the lucrative Karaka Millions Series.
Just nine short months after they make their virtual sale-ring debut, graduates of the online sale can compete for a share in the 2025 $1m TAB Karaka Millions 2YO (1200m), followed by the 2026 $1.5m TAB Karaka Millions 3YO (1600m).
Graduates of the relatively new sale have already had multiple successes on the racetrack, with the inaugural 2021 sale graduates already claiming a 44% winners to runners strike rate, including stakes performers such as Bolshoi Star (NZ) (Russian Revolution) and Karaka Millions contender Time Ruler (NZ) (Time Test).
“The Sale offers breeders and vendors a cost-effective and straight-forward opportunity to sell their yearlings to a wide audience,” commented NZB Bloodstock Sales Manager Kane Jones.
“In its third year, it has already proven to be a great source of genuine racehorses and the attraction for buyers is only strengthened by the Karaka Millions Series eligibility.”
