Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling Sale 2021 Exceptional Breeding Continues

As we continue to look through the sale entries for our 2021 sale, we have found yet another stand out pedigree with Harvey Kaplan’s Harshell Investments entering the full brother to the great “Bling It On” into Nutrien’s inaugural sale.

Bling It On is the winner of 48 races including 6 Group 1’s and amassed an impressive $1.8 Million in stakes earnings, with a record that boasts winning both the Hunter Cup and the Victoria Cup as a 9-year-old. He was also Aust 2 & 3-year-old Horse of the Year, plus 2017 NSW Horse of the Year, running a career best time of 1.50.2.

From the dam Alldatglittersisgold (Caprock USA), who now has progeny earnings of over $3 Million with 123 race wins including 2 full brothers with 16 wins and both running under 1.59 with a total of 8 winners from 9 foals of racing age. The Stud will also offer a son of Bling It On out of the dam Alashell who is the dam of Single tree road (7 wins 1.55) and the ill fated Sheshell Rock (1 win from 2 starts at 1.57.1 

When we take a look at Trotters we are also looking forward to offering the Father Patrick colt out of the NZ bred mare Aldebaran Merry This is the mare’s first foal who is a striking type and sure to turn a few heads looking to select a candidate for the Haras Des Trotteurs three-year-old incentives in 2023.

Harvey Kaplan has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most successful vendors and breeders in the past decade. He was awarded the  Ian Daff Memorial Breeder of the year in 2013, topped  the 2020 sales with a $160,000 yearling and is a former treasurer and committee member of the Victorian Harness Breeders Association.

We are excited to have these wonderful horses in our catalogue and can’t wait to showcase these and more horses to you all in April 2021.
