Oakland Park Unfurls fillies in Melbourne

Oakland Park Stud led WA breeders at this week’s Inglis Premier Yearling Sale with fillies by Street Boss (USA) and Pierro making a combined $300,000.

Both yearlings were part of the Blue Gum Farm draft that led the Melbourne Sale with turnover of $5.20 million.  The Euroa nursery also topped the overall leader-board with a $1.10 million Written Tycoon colt sold as agent for breeder Rob Crabtree.

Blue Gum topped the 2020 Melbourne Premier with a $725,000 Snitzel colt on behalf of Oakland Park breeder Neville Duncan.  Subsequently named Bruckner, he finished third on debut in the Black Opal Preview (1000m) in Canberra on February 19.

Oakland Park’s Street Boss – Unfurl filly (Lot 417) was bought by Victorian-based Rich River Meat Exports for $190,000 on Monday.  Her dam is a Melbourne-winning half-sister to NZ stakes winners Inferno and Ortem Fire.

Unfurl (Raise The Flag) was purchased by Oakland Park carrying a PPT to Street Boss for $75,000 at the 2019 Magic Millions National Sale.  She has a Sessions filly on the ground and was bred back to him in November.

Oakland Park’s Pierro – Ready On Time filly (Lot 276) made $110,000 to Melbourne trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young on Monday.  She is from a More Than Ready winning half-sister to No Wine No Song (G1 Sydney Cup) and Cappo D’Oro (LR Towton Cup).

Ready On Time also has a filly foal by Sessions and was bred back to the Oakland Park resident late last year.
