Andrew Williams has made an instant sale ring impact on his return to New Zealand.

He has recently established his own bloodstock company in Sydney and he enjoyed a successful maiden buying foray to Karaka during the opening session of New Zealand Bloodstock's Weanling Sale on Monday.

Williams went to $170,000 to secure the Nearco-bred Savabeel colt (Lot 30), the first foal of the multiple stakes-winning Tavistock mare Aristo, from Currraghmore's draft.

"He's a really athletic individual and I'm very happy to have got him on my first trip to Karaka under my own banner," he said.

"I've bought him for a new client of mine and he'll be heading straight over to Australia.

"Savabeels are doing extremely well, they are extremely popular in the marketplace."

Originally from Waikato, Williams graduated in 2007 from the University of Otago with a Bachelor's degree in Commerce, Accounting & Marketing and he subsequently earned a place on the 2007 Darley Flying Start programme.

He gained work experience at the Keeneland Sales in the United States and with renowned trainer Michael Jarvis, followed by a stint with Roger Varian in Newmarket and David Hayes in Australia.

This was followed by four years with Darley America in Kentucky, a stint with the international agency Blandford Bloodstock and a spell with Arrowfield Stud in Australia. – NZ Racing Desk.
