21 Downbytheseaside progeny at NZB Yearling Sales

Media Release : Woodlands Stud 

It was a rocky start to the 2021-22 Australasian breeding season for young sire Downbytheseaside, after suffering a bout of colic shortly after arriving in New Zealand from North America back in August.

The champion son of Somebeachsomewhere had to undergo lifesaving surgery while in quarantine where they removed a small portion of his bowel. He ended up missing the first month of the season, but he healed well and exceeded all expectations when he eventually got the green light to resume his stud duties in the middle of October.

With glowing reports from trainers and breakers on his yearlings in Australasia and after a hugely successful season with his debut crop in North America, Downbytheseaside is a sire in hot demand in the Southern Hemisphere. At the closing of the breeding season last week, he has served around 340 mares across Australasia with a full book of 150 in Australia and just under 200 in New Zealand.

He was the leading first season sire in North America and second overall on the 2-year-old leader board after his first crop set tracks alight. His son, Gulf Shores was crowned Ohio 2-year-old of the Year.

Due to his popularity, his progeny in the upcoming yearling sales are sure to be sought after. At the NZB Standardbred National Yearling Sales starting this weekend he is represented by 21 lots across the three days of sales.

He has 13 progeny entered in the North Island sale being held at the Karaka Sales complex on Sunday, 13th February. It is a stellar bunch of yearlings that includes a half-brother to 2021 New Zealand Cup Winner Copy That, a half-brother to recent Australian Performer Bettor Call Me and a close relation to Harness Jewels winner A Bettor You.

The pacing sale then moves South to Christchurch on Tuesday, 15th February where eight lots represent the sire. There is plenty of depth to the pedigrees here also including a very close relation to recent performer South Coast Arden and the first foal out of a sister to Sir Lincoln.
