Lot 556 2022 NZB Karaka Sale

Purchased for NZD$250,000

“We couldn’t leave the sale without a Savabeel. He is one of the best sires in the world and I have had a lot of luck with him. Missybeel, Kiss The Bride and Savvy Valentino are all multiple city winners or stakes performers by Savabeel and they have won $1.4m in prizemoney between them in recent seasons. As a trainer you can’t get enough of them. The pedigree of this colt is outstanding – Redoute’s Choice is arguably the best broodmare sire in Australasia and Westbury Stud are an outstanding farm.” – BJORN BAKER, Trainer

“Although we had to wait until late in the sale to buy our Savabeel, we were lucky to get the one that we rated at the top of the list. I think he snuck under the radar because he is a November foal. He will take a bit of time but the Savabeel breed are much better as 3yo’s and older horses so there is no rush with him. Redoute’s Choice, Royal Academy and Marauding are all outstanding sires and broodmare sirs and this colt has a deep black-type pedigree.” – JIM CLARKE, Clarke Bloodstock
