the Hunter Valley and Woodside Park in Victoria.

Zoustar had his first season at Widden, then a year at Woodside before
returning to Widden last year and is headed back to Victoria this spring.
Coolmore's Epsom Derby winner Camelot (GB) only had one season here in
Australia but made a real impression at this sale with eight youngsters

Attitude that made $280,000 for Mill Park when purchased by Heywood Bloodstock/
Mayfair Speculators of South Africa.
Arrowfield's Dundeel and Darley's Epaulette were solid at this sale as they
have been right through the sales season.

(IRE), Fighting Sun, Unencumbered and War all having yearlings sell for
$150,000 or more.
