Despite heavy interest from a strong international buying bench the Cambridge based father and son duo of Ginger and Bryce Tankard struck a blow for the locals during the early stages the annual Ready-To-Run sale of two-year-olds at Karaka on Wednesday.

Under their Waikato Bloodstock banner the duo purchased Lot 2, a colt by the US Breeder' Cup Juvenile winner Uncle Mo from Japanese mare Uno Sayuri. The colt breezed up in a comfortable 10.92 for the 200 metre journey and was offered through the Curraghmore draft.

"He is a lovely colt and we thought he would be a difficult one to buy," admitted Bryce Tankard.

"We loved his breeze up and the underlying strength of his family pedigree. The tough nature of Japanese racing is well known and the performance of his extended family in that environment makes him an attractive proposition."

Bought for a local client, Tankard is keen to see how the colt develops before any further plans are made for him.

"He will go home now and we'll bring him along with a view to getting him to the trial stage in the autumn, he said.

"Once we see how he is progressing we will make some firmer plans for him then." – NZ Racing Desk
