Dynamic Buys Awesome ASTERN Colt from PRIMA PARK on Day 1 NZB Yearling Sale


The 2020 NZ Bloodstock Yearling Sale at Karaka kicked-off on Australia Day and whilst Australians were enjoying our National Day, Team Dynamic were hard at work across the ditch at Karaka for the Kiwi’s 94th National Yearling Sale.

Adam Watt and our contracted veterinarian Dr Tim Roberts had identified an awesome colt being offered by PRIMA PARK as Lot 123 by Darley Stud’s exciting First Crop Sire ASTERN from the ZABEEL mare MY TYPE and the boys were in raptures about the way he presented.

His Dam, MY TYPE was unraced but has been a very successful broodmare at stud.

She has produced Six foals to race – 4 Winners and 1 placed including 2yo Stakes Winner TYPING (by Sebring) who won 2 races, 1 at 2, inc Dalrello S.

She has also produced: British Bulldog (9 Wins), Fairlighting (4 wins), Fly The Coop (Winner) and Prosperous Sun (placed).

MY TYPE (Zabeel) is from the Stakes-Winning mare ON TYPE (6 wins), a three-time Gr2 Winner and as a broodmare she has produced 5 Winners including Stakes Winner SUGAR BABE and Stakes Placed MUSCOVADO whilst another of her winning daughters named Bellevue Hill has produced Gr3 Winner BELLEVUE HILL (trained by GAI and ADRIAN).

Our vet rated this colt an 8+ and placed him within the TOP 5 Colts he had inspected on the sale-ground and then, when that matched clean as a whistle x-rays and a flawless Grade 1 endoscopic evaluation, we went “all-in” committing to making him our must have colt on our list to bring back across the ditch to race in Sydney where he will be best placed to run for our huge prizemoney and he’s also BOBS eligible to run for the big bonus prizemoney in NSW.

ASTERN x MY TYPE Colt at PRIMA PARK 17 December 5 weeks out from saleday

We were ecstatic to have our leading lot when it was knocked down to an unanswered bid from Adam Watt at $150,000, outbidding another determined good judge, under bidder Lee Freedman.

LOT 123 ASTERN x MY TYPE (by Zabeel) after we had purchased the Colt in the salering

This colt has something special about him which you don’t often get in NZ and that’s precocity. He looks like a 2YO, he is strong, very correct, very athletic and ready to go straight into the educators once he arrives home from NZ.

PRIMA PARK were fantastic vendors and presented an excellent equine athlete into the salering. They came over congratulating us on our purchase, and kindly offered to take the colt back to their farm to agist, continuing his excellent start to life they have been providing, whilst we organise a plane trip back to Sydney within the next fortnight.

What initially attracted us to the colt was his brilliant genetic pedigree rating!

Whilst ASTERN was a brilliant racehorse, he is naturally yet to have a runner to compare how he is likely to nick with various mares by different sires.

However, we take comfort in the fact his own Sire is Champion - MEDAGLIA D’ORO.

Whilst our colt’s Dam, MY TYPE - is a daughter of Champion sire - ZABEEL.

We knew this to be a very potent cross when replicated.

On this EXACT CROSS of sire MEDAGLIA D’ORO over a ZABEEL broodmare, there has been:

16 Starters: 13 Winners (81%) and 1 Placed including:
2 Stakes Winners and 1 Stakes Placed:




On the extended RATED CROSS of MEDAGLIA D’ORO (his sons and grandsons ) over ZABEEL (& his sons and grandsons) there has been another 4 Stakes Winners. They are:


If we research further, we identify that SADLER’S WELLS (grandsire of MEDAGLIA D’ORO) over ZABEEL broodmares (and his sons and grandsons) there has been 30 Stakes Winners which includes Gr1 Winners: DUNDEEL – FENWAY – HIYAAM - PRINCESS JENNI – HUMIDOR – WERTHER – TARZINO and HASSELHOOF.

Next, if we did deeper, we identify that SADLER’S WELLS (grandsire of MEDAGLIA D’ORO) over SIR TRISTRAM broodmares (sire of ZABEEL, and his sons and grandsons) there have been 50 Stakes Winners which includes the Gr1 Winners listed above plus two additional Gr1 Winners: PERLIN and SCENIC SHOT.

Therefore, with 81% Winners : Runners and 18.75% Stakes-Horses : Winners, we are aware the odds are heavily stacked in our favour through this mating.

Then when this awesome ASTERN Colt walked out of his box to be paraded, he presented with that elusive “WOW FACTOR” swagger reserved only for high-class individuals.
He was built in the same mould from his own sire ASTERN who himself was a chip of the block of his own sire MEDAGLIA D’ORO.

There is a truism in our industry, a simple quote that says everything; “buy the one you want!” and we did!


B 2013 16.0½ hh

By Medaglia d'Oro ex Essaouira (by Exceed And Excel) Standing at Kelvinside, NSW

Blending the best blood of both hemispheres – by a World Class champion Northern Hemisphere shuttle sire from a High-Class Southern Hemisphere pure speed family.

First yearlings have made up to $725,000. He averaged $178,000 for his yearlings at Magic Millions.

A superb racehorse – a high class 2yo and an elite 3yo

The highest-rated son of Medaglia d’Oro and out Essaouria (Exceed And Excel), she was a six-length debut winner at two.

Astern competed in the top-shelf races throughout his wonderful career with a peak performance when winning the Gr1 GOLDEN ROSE as a Spring 3yo.

Astern graced the racetrack as a pre-Christmas debut winner at 2 at Randwick by 2.5 lengths.

Then he stepped out to win the Gr2 Silver Slipper

At his third race he was unplaced in the Golden Slipper.

And proved his class by backing up and winning the Gr3 Kindergarten before a spell.

He returned at three to win the G2 Run To The Rose first-up.

He followed that with a victory in the G1 Golden Rose.

Next, he was unlucky when runner-up by a head in the Roman Consul

Next time out he was runner-up in the Coolmore Stud Stakes Gr1 in Melbourne and was then spelled.

He resumed in the Gr1 TJ Smith on a Heavy 10 track and broke-down in the run and was immediately retired
