That concludes the NZB Karaka Yearling Sales for 2024! Team Te Akau is overjoyed to have secured 29 yearlings, with 10 already sold, and each is poised to excel under the Te Akau banner in New Zealand and Australia. We are elated with the high calibre of horses that will grace the track in the tangerine!

We are proud to offer shares in promising young horses for every budget - this sale holds a special significance as we set our sights on the future 2YO races we cherish, aiming for our 8th Karaka Million 2YO in 2025 and targeting Group races in New Zealand and in Australia from our Cranbourne stable.

Don't miss the chance to be part of the excitement, both on and off the track! Join Team Te Akau today!

Securing a share in one of our stunning yearlings has never been easier. Our online system simplifies the process, allowing you to conveniently purchase shares in any of our new yearlings. Additionally, you can delve into more details about our new horses, including videos captured on the sale ground, photos, and other relevant information.

Our dedicated team has once again showcased its expertise by meticulously selecting the very best from the extensive catalogue of young horses at Karaka over the past three days. We are confident that among this exceptional crop, potential champions are poised to emerge - and we’re still going to be active in Book 2 that kicks off tomorrow.

What distinguishes this year is the remarkable diversity achieved across all price ranges. Numerous lots have come in under our budget, providing an added bonus for our ownership family when it comes to value. From affordable options to high-calibre prospects for racing purists, we have worked hard to sort the best - and are proud to now have the most impressive array of yearlings anyone could want.

We are eager to welcome owners to join our team, and we are actively pursuing the $200,000 New Owners' Bonus. This bonus will be awarded to the first horse across the finish line in the $1 million TAB Karaka Millions 2YO, with 50% or more of the ownership held by first-time owners.

Designed to introduce newcomers to the thrill of racehorse ownership, new owners can purchase a share in this yearling and be racing for $1.2 million only a year later.
The New Owners' Bonus presents an incredible opportunity for those who haven’t owned a horse before to immerse themselves in the thrills of racing a thoroughbred. Success becomes even more rewarding if their yearling sales purchase performs well in the 2025 TAB Karaka Millions 2YO.

Join us for an exhilarating journey on and off the track! Treat yourself to the thrill of ownership and become part of the dream team that is Te Akau Racing! Check out our Yearlings & Shares here:
