Fillies in demand and to Aussie buyers.

Fillies amazingly were well sort after at NZB Standardbred’s 2023 National Weanling Sale held at Karaka, with eight lots secured for $40,000 or more and fillies taking top honours at the conclusion of selling.

Standardbred Manager Cam Bray was pleased with the results from the boutique sale.

“It was heartening to see the fillies so well supported, alongside New Zealand’s emerging sires being well received” Bray said.

Three of the top 4 lots sold were fillies, in fact half of the top ten weanlings sold were fillies and four of those were purchased by Australian buyers.

So why the interest in fillies out of New Zealand? When in Australia fillies struggle to get a bid!
