Buy­ing Toron­ado at Karaka sale

Waipa Post - - The Country -

Vic­to­rian trainer Richard Lam­ing went to $300,000 for a son of Toron­ado out of the Stravin­sky mare Cir­cus Polka at the New Zealand Blood­stock Ready to Run Sale at Karaka, pro­vid­ing a tidy profit for ven­dors Adrian Stan­ley and Han­nah Ket­tlety of Woburn Farm.

The Cam­bridge-based cou­ple pur­chased the half-brother to stakes per­former Modoc for $80,000 at the Mel­bourne Year­ling Sale

“He was a lovely horse, he breezed up well and he has got lots of im­prove­ment there,” Lam­ing said.

“He’s still pretty raw and there is a lot to come from him. I’m happy with the price.

“There are some good clients com­ing in him and Woburn have stayed in as well, so it’s even bet­ter.

“This is the only one we’ve bought this week, but I am happy with the one I’ve got.”

Lam­ing said he was ex­cited by the start the prog­eny of Toron­ado had made in the north­ern hemi­sphere, where he has five first-crop stakes per­form­ers.

“He’s do­ing a good job in Eu­rope.”
