Following the first dedicated weanling only sale held last year, New Zealand Bloodstock has announced the decision to hold a physical sale at the Karaka Sales Centre for the 2021 National Weanling Sale on Friday 14 May.

Headlined by Group One Tarzino Trophy winner Callsign Mav (NZ) (Atlante) and New Zealand Oaks winner Jennifer Eccles (NZ) (Rip Van Winkle), a $3,000 and $5,000 purchase in 2017 respectively.

For investors and pinhookers, the Sale offers a happy hunting ground for those searching for their next pinhook success story or racetrack star with the likes of Group One winners Gingernuts (NZ) (Iffraaj), Yourdeel (NZ) (Dundeel) and Puccini (NZ) (Encosta de Lago) all initially going through the ring as weanlings.  

Weanlings offered in the Sale will be eligible to enter in the Karaka Million Series featuring two $1 million races available for graduates as two and three-year-olds, plus the $100,000 CollinsonForex Karaka Cup for the duration of their career.
