Big profit margins achieved for supporters of our 2019 Great Southern mare draft

01 Feb 2021

In 2019, Willow Park presented a draft of broodmares at the Inglis Great Southern Sale for the first time. With the resulting foals from these mares now yearlings, we’re starting to see them head to yearling sales and some pleasing results popping up!


Tarragon (NZ), was sold by Willow Park for $58,000, carrying her first foal by first season sire, Invader. Purchased by Aquis Farm, they went on to sell the Invader colt at the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale for $500,000! 


Another huge result at Magic Millions was the first foal of Amansara, by Nicconi. Amansara (pictured) was purchased for just $35,000 at the Great Southern Sale and her Nicconi colt went on to make $250,000 for Mill Park Stud in January.


The results aren’t just limited to Australian sales, Astrid (NZ), was sold to Berkley Stud in Christchurch, New Zealand, for $50,000. She was in foal to first season sire, Churchill (IRE), carrying her first foal and that filly has gone on to sell in Book 2 at Karaka 2021 for $200,000-topping Book 2 of the sale! 


Stakes placed Alamosa (NZ), mare, Aquamosa (NZ), was sold for $87,500 in foal to So You Think (NZ). The resultant foal made $130,000 as a weanling and the mare was re sold the following year for $180,000. 


We offer a number of mares at the mare sales annually, of which a high percentage are maiden mares carrying their first foals. It gives us a huge thrill to see these foals bringing such fantastic returns for their new owners!
