On day one of the NZB Ready to Run Sale Lot 148 Contributer - Bella Carolina sold to Mark Newnham Bloodstock for $150,000. The striking individual turned heads at the complex all week and his stylish breeze up in 10.64 ensured there was fierce competition in the ring to secure the son of Contributer.
This colt is out of the stakes producing O’Reilly mare Bella Carolina. A winner of 3 races between 1200-1400m, she is the dam of 2 winners, making this colt a half-brother to the 2yo stakes winner Tennessee. His 3yo full-sister was super impressive at the Auckland trials on Thursday for the team at Te Akau Racing and looks a progressive filly.
