It could be a case of the early bird getting the worm, at this Sunday's Shepparton Sale, when St Fort puts its promising youngsters on show in the early-morning pre-sale workouts.
The stud's quality offerings (lot numbers 72, 73, 73, 74, 77, 78, 79 and 88) will all be strutting their stuff on the track from 8.30 on the morning of the sale.
It offers the opportunity for new and experienced owners to watch the workouts and possibly spot a future star.
All of the St Fort youngsters are broken in, gaited and well-mannered and, importantly, all for genuine sale.
"In the past few weeks we have bowled these youngsters along a bit and I'm really happy with the way they're all coming along," Tony said.
"But none of them have had a genuine preparation so far, so their potential is only just starting to emerge," Tony said.
The offering includes youngsters by quality sires Elsu NZ, Shadow Play USA, Altana Christiano NZ, Gold Dust Beach CA, Yankee Boy USA and Tin TIn In America NZ.
Phone bids will be accepted, providing a buyer registration is in place. Further information is available by contacting Shepparton Club Manager Ian McDonald 0428 231 403.
Live streaming of the sale will be available on the day. More information and sale catalogues are available from Shepparton Harness Racing Club's website. http://www.sheppartonhrc.com.au
