I’m the first to admit I have never meet Liz Birnie from Alabar Farms, however if I ever do, l will congratulate her on presenting what could be one of the best looking colts I’ve seen going into a sale.
Her Lot 165 a Shadow Play – Miss Saxony colt is a ripper.
To me the industry needs more people like Liz. While she only breeds of only a couple mares a year, the way this colt has been turned out is a credit to her and the team at Alabar.
Alabar in my view have been able to lift the standard of yearlings this year. When looking over their large team of yearlings, you’ll see they are all at a very high Standardbred.
While Liz’s Shadow Play colt is a standout, yearlings like Lot 58 are appear perfectly prepared like yearlings should.
Another colt that has plenty of people talking about him is the half-brother of Goodtime Sammy – Lot 106. This colt had people’s attention from the time he entered the sales complex. I don’t think a Colt was walked for clients more than this stunning son of Restpro yesterday.
Can I also take the time to thank the three outstanding stars APG had as there expert panel last night. They featured: leading trainer – Nicole Molander, respected veterinarian -Virginia Brosnan, and industry expert – John Coffey. All three did a wonderful job and the feedback was extremely positive. The two ladies were brilliant and the old boy, John Coffey had the room captivated every time he spoke.
Well done to all l say.
