Bertolini tops NZ breeze-up sale

New Zealand Bloodstock’s Ready To Run Sale for two-year-olds took place on 17 November with a colt by Bertolini (lot 240) fetching the top price of $400,000 (£177,000).

The handsome bay was prepared by Lyndhurst Farm and is out of the unraced Ebony Pearl, by Grosvenor’s son Ebony Grove. He was bought to race in Hong Kong by agent Willie Leung on behalf of businessman Johnny Ng.

Speaking to European Bloodstock News, Mr Leung said: “We were drawn to lot 240 as he’s precocious and has a beautiful action.”

The second highest priced juvenile of the sale made $240,000.

During Bertolini’s time in New Zealand, he sired the Group winners Puttanesca, Juice, Solvini, Xbert and Medic Power, who was also sold to campaign in Hong Kong where he won the G3 Sha Tin Vase.
