NOVEMBER 17, 2016: The first day of New Zealand Bloodstock’s Ready to Run Sale of 2YOs saw another first-crop son of Bullet Train (GB) fetch a six-figure purchase price when Lot 66 was sold to NZB as Agent (Hong Kong) for NZ$100,000.
The bay gelding was presented for sale by Sanderston Park Ltd of Matamata and had breezed in an impressive 10.53s — one of the fastest times recorded by any of the 552 Lots catalogued for the sale.
The seventh foal of the four-time winning Night Shift mare Auspicious Day, the Bullet Train gelding is a half-brother to four individual winners including Group-placed Inauguration (2 wins; 3d ATC Carbine Club S.-G3). Second-dam is the Group 3 AJC Gimcrack Stakes winner Dandolera (by), a super precocious daughter of Kaoru Star bred and raced by George Altomonte’s Corumbene Stud.
