Similar improvement has happened in the record of the Modern Art mare Fuller Vee Em which is the dam of Lot 59 – a colt by A Rocknroll Dance.
At the first proof stage in October the vendor Brooklyn Lodge as Agent for Lot 59 was sent a proof showing that Fuller Vee Em was the dam of two winners with the best of them Our Money Rocks having ten wins and stakes of $96,373 to his name.
Since then Our Money Rocks has won six races including his last five on a Saturday night at Menangle and he has now won 16 races and $157,565 and has every chance of adding to his record in the opening race on Miracle Mile night this Saturday.
In addition Fuller Vee Em has produced a third winner in Wheres The Money has won its last two starts at Albion Park and taken a record of 1:54.7 in the process.
Lots 7 and 59 are classic examples of the benefit of the Nutrien catalogue innovation of having weekly updates on their website.
The additional innovation of a QR code on each catalogue page means it is easy for potential purchasers to access the updated details for a particular lot.
Using a mobile phone camera to scan the QR code takes a person straight to the on-line reference to the particular lot being scanned and the updated pedigree and any photos and or video that apply to that lot are instantly available.
The days of a static yearling sale catalogue are gone and if you spot somebody on sale day looking at their phone the odds are they are checking for updates and not texting somebody!
