Breednet - Media Release - Sunday, 11 April 2010

Owner Lloyd Williams’ latest sale of racehorses are all featured on the Gavelhouse website and boast some superbly bred types and opportunities for the astute buyer.

Historically the horses that have been sold out of the Williams stable have proven to be successful.

Horses such as Hume that ran second to Shocking the weekend before Shocking won the Melbourne Cup. Recast, the Singapore success story and winner of the Singapore Gold Cup. Simplest who went on to win six in a row for his new trainer Barry Baldwin and World Champion six time Group One winner and highest stakes earner in Hong Kong winning over HK$75 million, Vengeance of Rain.

The group of horses currently on offer are no different in the opportunities they present.

Beautifully bred examples such as Mews, the three year old Pins – Gin Player gelding is a half to the Multiple Group winner Zarita.

Last week at the Inglis Easter Yearling sale in Sydney the Zabeel half sister (pictured left) to Mews sold for a staggering $1.3Million.

Others include Instructor, the Group placed Pins – Excelo gelding a half brother to multiple Group One and Derby winner in Xcellent. Warbucks, the half brother to dual Group One winner Perlin and Billson the lovely three year old Redoutes Choice – Tangerine Dream colt that from four starts has won two and run second twice.

Interlocking and Thames are wonderful examples of their multiple champion sire in Zabeel and show they are indeed destined for positive staying futures. Testa Rossa is also well represented with promising listed winner Tindal, recently gelded and looking forward to a bright future.

The horses have all had the benefit of recent preparations at the world-class facility in Macedon Lodge with the very best of care, handling and facilities available.

The decision to make the horses available through the Gavelhouse website had been given much thought.

Nick Williams stated, “We felt it very important to make these horses available to the widest possible audience and Gavelhouse seemed the perfect medium to achieve that aim.

“We have horses in all price ranges and they are priced to meet the market, we look forward to watching their careers with their new owners.”

Horses listed are as follows:

Billson (Redoutes Choice-Tangerine Dream)
Forecast (Falbrav-Rainbow Roll)
Impend (Redoutes Choice-Orderly)
Instructor (Pins-Excelo)
Interlocking (Zabeel-Give It A Whirl)
Mews (Pins-Gin Player)
Oblaque (Delago Brom-Clouding Over)
Selbourne (Testa Rossa-Unzipped)
Thames (Zabeel-Carnegie Hikari)
Tindal (Testa Rossa-Indian Spice)
Warbucks (Van Nistlerooy-My Midnight Madam)

Details of all the horses for sale are at www.gavelhouse.com  or contact your preferred bloodstock agent.

Why would you recently geld a horse and then want to sell it?

Option better left to a new buyer.

Random observation - horses he has owned & named all appear to have single names - who was the last horse HE named that had multiple words in it's name??

Too far back.

My knowledge of Victorian racing is pathetic.

One thing however.....if he was so adamant in "one word" naming, he could have easily applied for a name change for WaN

The Inghams ( or at least the woman who named their horses) were like that- all one word names.
The Whites with all their seven letter names.
Maybe there is something in it chin

Oh and I think Cest La Guerre was a tried horse from NZ Beachy

The White's formula is a stand out.

So why didn't the White's change their own surname.

 Might have brought even better luck.

Qld forumites will know this. What is the name on an ex Lloyd Williams middle distance horse that has been racing in Brisbane for about the last 2-3 seasons? Might start with the letter "L" Not sure on that.

Thanks in advance.
