Dormello Stud dispersal at NZ Bloodstock May Sale

Dormello Stud will sell 119 lots on an unreserved basis at the NZ Bloodstock National Weanling, Broodmare and Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Karaka from May 2 to 4.

Dormello Stud is home to Redoute’s Choice stallion Duelled who was a G2 winner of the MVRC AAMI Vase.  He is a three-quarter-brother to G1 VRC Derby winner and successful sire Nothin’ Leica Dane.

“Duelled has sired 10 individual winners to date with his best horse to date being Group 1 performer Shootoff,” Dormello Stud’s Murray Gregory said.  “Endor is another Duelled colt to show considerable promise and he is being set for a Queensland campaign.”

Dormello Stud will relocate Duelled and sell the broodmares that were purchased to support him at stud.  “The decision has been made reluctantly and after much deliberation,” Gregory added.  “His progeny are showing considerable promise particularly over a bit of ground.”

Buyers will have over 45 mares to choose from in foal to Duelled, Savabeel, Keeper and Fast ‘N’ Famous.  In addition, there are 38 weanlings, 28 yearlings, 5 racehorses and one unraced filly.
