Following a record-breaking Book 1, a quickfire day of selling saw 118 lots go under the hammer at the opening session of New Zealand Bloodstock’s Karaka 2024 Book 2 Sale.

Book 2 has been a happy hunting ground for Karaka Millions contenders over the years, highlighted by this year’s $1.5m TAB Karaka Millions 3YO runner-up Pendragon, who was a $110,000 purchase by Paul Moroney Bloodstock and Ballymore Stables at Karaka 2022.

Fittingly, the top lot of today’s session was Lot 790, a half-brother to the Karaka Millions performer by Time Test from the young Pour Moi mare Kerre, also knocked down to Moroney in conjunction with Catheryne Bruggeman and Toowoomba trainers Tony and Maddysen Sears for $220,000.
