Almanzor continues to shine on the Coast

Almanzor continues to shine on the Coast19 May 2021

The momentum Almanzor's first crop yearlings created in the sale ring has flowed over to the first offerings of his second crop.

Following a sale topping price of $145,000 at the New Zealand Bloodstock National Weanling Sale earlier in the month Almanzor followed up with another profitable result in Australia.

At the Magic Millions' Gold Coast National Weanling Sale a colt bred by Guy Mulcaster and Di McDonald sold for $180,000. Offered by Bhima Thoroughbreds, the son of stakes placed mare She is Stryking was purchased by Lionrock Bloodstock and Andrew Williams Bloodstock.

Williams had already shown an affinity for the bloodlines earlier this year when he teamed up with trainer Liam Howley and fellow bloodstock agent Bevan Smith to purchase the yearling brother for $360,000 at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale in February.
