Bombora Downs’ Christoph Bruechert is excited to present his stallion Warhorse’s first crop of yearlings at the upcoming 2018 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from March 4 – 7 at the Oaklands complex.

A Champion, Group 1 winning two-year-old in New Zealand, Warhorse was the best performed son of outstanding Australian speed sire, General Nediym, and now calls Bombora Downs at Bittern on the Mornington Peninsula his home.

“Warhorse has been well supported by breeders with two good sized books of mares and most importantly, he will not only have the numbers, but also the quality out there hitting the track in the years to come,” Bruechert said.

Bruechert is excited with the quality of yearlings Warhorse has produced for his first crop and is delighted to showcase two of the three lots accepted at Premier.

“It’s such a busy time of year, as we are finishing off the tail-end of the stud season, beginning to handle the weanlings and we have a barn full of yearlings for next week. With the normal everyday jobs and feeding as well, we are certainly a busy operation at the moment,” Bruechert said.

Bruechert took heart at the success Warhorse had at the Tasmanian Magic Millions with his first sales yearling making $45,000 in selling to astute buyer and trainer, John Blacker.

“That was a strong result for the Tasmanian Magic Millions, and with two catalogued in Premier, let’s hope we can build on that with my Warhorse colts.”

Lot 638 Colt Warhorse x Volte – Bombora Downs

“Not an overly big, but a very strong yearling. He is short coupled, powerfully built that will mature pretty quickly and, given that Warhorse’s progeny are all eligible for the VOBIS Sires $1 Million Showdown 2YO race and overall $24 million VOBIS scheme, this horse is a prime candidate.

“Warhorse was a great two-year-old himself, as was his father and grandfather, so this neat, correct well put together colt is a very good prospect.”

“His female line is also solid, being a half-brother to seven winners headed by Group 1 winner Dealer Principal and Group 3 placed Resistor from terrific producer Volte.”

“He is the second foal from a rapidly improving female family. I have very high hopes for this mare, being a half-sister to Group 3 winner Sophie’s Spirit. Everything that she has produced so far has been great. I have her first foal currently in work with Cindy Alderson, and she is very pleased and believes he has the X-factor.”

“This colt is a bigger type of yearling with more scope. I really like him, and I think he will mature into a lovely late two-year-old.”
