Gigantic Boost for SA Yearling Sale

29 January 2019 | Peter Wharton

The results of last Saturday night’s racing at Globe Derby Park has given the upcoming Allwood Stud Farm SA Yearling Sale a terrific shot-in-the-arm.

Firstly, the two-year-old gelding Hesashark, who sat parked before winning the Kindergarten Stakes Prelude on debut, is a product of last year’s SA Yearling Sale. Bred by Ian and Judi Slater, of Goodtime Lodge, near Colac, Victoria, the Shadyshark Hanover gelding was knocked down for $10,000 to a Port Pirie syndicate.

Earlier in the night, the Well Said gelding That Said led throughout to win the Port Pirie Harness Racing Club/SA Botra Pacing Cup Final. A For A Reason half-brother to That Said will be offered by Geoff Easom’s Wyndown Stud as Lot 6 at this year’s sale, being out of Murgatroyd, the dam of six sub 2:00 winners from six starters.

The 2019 Allwood Stud Farm SA Yearling Sale will be conducted on Sunday, February 10, starting at 12 noon at the Magic Millions complex, Morphettville.

Catalogues are available from Globe Derby Park, Port Pirie, all other SA country tracks, Tabcorp Park Melton and Tabcorp Park Menangle. The on-line version is available at or at
