Some of the world’s best broodmares and bloodlines could soon be heading to Victoria with Adam Sangster currently at the Tattersalls sale in the UK before heading to Arqana in France.

Recognising current international breeding trends and striving to expand bloodlines available to Victorian breeders, Sangster is travelling to the world’s finest breeding sales to bring home distinguished and proven pedigrees.

“We are aware of how well these bloodlines mate to our Victorian stallions at home and taking advantage of a realistic market, these highly sought-after European families are available at a genuine price,” Sangster said,

“We are partnering with some of the best bloodstock agents in the world to ensure that we come home with a diverse selection of high-quality breeding stock that represent great value.”

“We are excited to introduce black type and blue hen bloodlines into the local breeding pool. We want to support the Victorian breeding community and will send the international sourced mare to the best commercial Victorian stallion mating available to achieve the best outcome.”

To become involved in this breeding and racing opportunity, Sangster is encouraging investment from Victorian breeders at all levels.

“We will be offering partnership opportunities in the breeding and/or racing group as a whole or in individual horses. A breeder can become involved in the concept with up to 25% shares in individual horses, while others may take a broader approach in a package of quality fillies & mares. We can accommodate all budgets and encourage people join us in this global breeding opportunity and share the ride,” Sangster said.

Sangster is currently attending Tattersalls December Mare Sale from the 3rd to the 6th of December. Widely regarded as one of the world’s best international bloodstock sales, it combines the best of British and Irish breeding stock with significant drafts from throughout Europe.

Sangster will then head over to France to attend the Arqana Breeding Stock Sale in Deauville on the 8-11th of December. This sale presents fillies and mares with the finest French flat racing bloodlines. Horses bought at Arqana’s Breeding Stock Sale have shone at the highest level throughout the 2018 racing season, including Group 1 winners in the US and Japan.
