Imperatriz Sale Spotlight

Imperatriz Sale Spotlight

The Magic Millions' National Broodmare Sale commences today - and the 'mare of the moment' will be our own Imperatriz.

Today we will see our wonderful 'Berri' go through the auction ring 'virtually' - she will be offered for sale to dissolve her racing partnership - whilst being happily ensconced in her paddock at the farm!

We have been asked by many people about how they can watch the sale - so if you are keen to follow the action, here is the link to the live sale coverage.

Imperatriz is Lot 587 and is estimated to go under the hammer sometime between 6.00pm - 6.45pm NZ time - it is hard to be precise, as much depends on how the actual sale itself proceeds today.

Berri (as we know Imperatriz) has brought such joy to so many, and as this chapter closes on this  part of her life today, we have very mixed emotions - pride, sadness, excitement, anticipation, respect, and love.  To reign supreme on the global stage, as she has done, is a remarkable achievement and we are so proud of all she has accomplished.

Here is the link to her catalogue page:

Remember, Imperatriz was the final yearling to sell in her year.  Looking back, it is incredible to believe that her shares were not in high demand - beautifully bred, a wonderful athlete - as we always say, there is no rhyme nor reason - last to sell is definitely not least.  

Other examples of 'last to sell' in their year are Group 1 winner Avantage who was Champion 2YO and sold for $4.1 million as a broodmare, and also Cool Aza Beel who was also a Group 1 and Karaka Millions' winner, and likewise Champion 2YO - he now stands at stud!

So do check out our remaining shares - their is a huge amount of quality and class still available!
