While the National Weanling Sale is relatively new, weanling graduates are no strangers to success having recorded an impressive score of eight Group One wins and 59 stakes wins in the current five seasons. 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.
