The latest edition of the Buyers’ Guide is out but as some of our eagle eyed readers have called to tell us that there is an abnormally high amount of fillies in the data. In fact all lots have been assigned the fairer sex. We have found the problem in way the data was compiled. Every lot was given the sex code of its dam, hence all females. The rest of the information in magazine is CORRECT. This site has the same data as the magazine with the correct gender of each horse.
The eighteenth annual edition of the Buyers’ Guide provides information to assist buyers planning their purchases at the 2014 yearling sales. This publication contains information for dams of all yearlings catalogued in the 2012/13 sales, and in “Major” yearling sales for the last three years. Three years of data for the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale has also been included. From 2012 this sale has been added to the Bluebloods Majors analysis published in July.
The layout of the information is outlined in the Explanatory Table below and remains unchanged since the last edition. The online version has sales results from Australia and New Zealand since 1994, and is accessed via the Statistics link on www.stallions.com.au. This invaluable resource includes sale history and summary reports for a range of major sales. Dam searches also return broodmare sire and covering sire information. Our thanks to Arion Pedigrees, New Zealand for providing the information in this edition.
