Waikato property's proud record

published: 18 Feb 2015 in Sale previews

HENLEY PARK may not be a name well known to Victorian buyers, but the well situated farm in the heart of Waikato boasts a proud record of association with such high class gallopers as Dundeel, Norzita, Sangster, Lion Tamer, We Can Say It Now, Midnight Oil, Red Ruler and Solzhenitsyn. Run by experienced couple Marc and Sarah Devcich, Henley brings a quality draft of yearlings to this year's Inglis Melbourne Premier.

The first of the stud’s youngsters through the line is Lot 174, a bay or brown colt by Redoute's Choice from Gabriella (GB) (Cape Cross). Bred on a 3mx4m cross of Danzig, this half-brother to two winners in Europe is out of an imported half-sister to globetrotting dual Gr.1-winning sprinter Cape of Good Hope.

The bay filly, Lot 247, by Pour Moi from Lily L'Amour (Volksraad) is the first foal of a five times-winning sister to the stakes placed Veldt. The bay colt, Lot 251, by Savabeel from four-time winner Mont Fay (Montjeu) boasts a 5mx5f cross of the wonderful mare Special. He is a half-brother to two winners and out of a citywinning daughter of the outstanding broodmare Field Nymph, dam of the Gr.1 winners Field Dancer and Just A Dancer and the Gr.3 winner Blanchard, in turn dam of Savabeel's stakes winner Zara Dancer.

Henley Park is also offering the next lot into the ring, a bay colt, Lot 252, by Street Cry from Oneworld Onedream (Galileo). This is the first foal of a winning mare from a prolific family whose members include the Gr.1 winners Charge Forward and Sydney’s Dream as well as the stakes winners Pepperwood, Georgette Silk, Diamond Cove, Kidman’s Cove, Settlers Cove, Donna Natalia and Marskin. Next comes Lot 534, a bay colt by Master of Design from Sparkling Symphony (Stravinsky). His dam is a winning half-sister to the high class Hong Kong galloper Packing Winner from the family of Gr.1 winner Southern Lord and stakes winners Captiva, Bigelow, Adagietto and Emmalene.

The bay colt, Lot 547, by Fastnet Rock from Suitely (Woodman) is bred on the successful Danehill/Mr. Prospector cross (young sires Rothesay and Stryker are by Fastnet Rock from Woodman daughters). This colt is a brother to the stakeswinning juvenile Casquets and a half-brother to the stake placed multiple city winner Merensky Reef. Dam is a half-sister to the Alister Clark Stakes-Gr.2 winner Flak Jacket, and this is the family of champion racehorse and sire Century.

The stud’s final offering at the 2015 Melbourne Premier is Lot 697, a brown colt by Star Witness from Long Long Ago (Lonhro). Yet another yearling boasting a duplication of Special, this colt is the first foal of a mare whose dam is a sister to the Gr.1 winners Universal Prince and Universal Queen and three-quarter sister to VRC Derby hero Blevic.
