Woodside Park Takes Sale Honours

The weanling catalogue of the 2018 Great Southern Sale concluded with a total of 436 weanlings sold and leading Victorian stallion Written Tycoon topping the sire’s list.

Written Tycoon’s 10 Lots all sold for an aggregate of $931,500 at an average of $93,150.

Woodside Park’s unreserved reduction of 18 weanlings made them the leading vendor by aggregate, grossing $948,500 at an average of $52,694.


Glenelg Park led the vendors by average, selling all six lots offered at an average of $89,667.

Woodside Park’s General Manager Commercial James Price reflected on the stud’s sale results.

“It’s great to be the leading commercial stud in Victoria,” Price said. “It’s equally satisfying to see the progeny of Written Tycoon in high demand not only Australia wide but also internationally.

“Offering 18 weanlings unreserved certainly created a lot of interest around our product.”

Paul Willetts was the leading weanling buyer, signing for 10 horses and another in partnership.

The broodmare section got underway with Aquis Farm going to $380,000 for the stakes-winning filly Yulong Xingsheng.

Aquis CEO Shane McGrath was thrilled to be taking the filly home.

“She is a beautiful quality mare who is by one of the best sires in the country. We loved her and she was our pick of the sale,’’ McGrath said.

“I thought $380,000 was a very fair price. When you buy these A-grade physicals with the proper race form, that is what you have to expect to pay.”
