After a record breaking day at the APG Brisbane Sale the harness racing world will now fix its attention to the sale that may deliver the next race track superstar.

Insightful breeders in the south have a happy knack of matching the world's best stallions over the correct mares from the leading families in the southern hemisphere.

With a massive $600,000 in local prize money on offer for just 56 colts and 45 fillies walking into the ring, you can see why it is the best time to reinvest into the excitement of harness racing.

The below is what the colts will complete for:

  • $150,000 APG Melbourne Gold Bullion 2yo C&G Final
  • $100,000 APG Melbourne Gold Bullion 3yo C&G Final
  • $50,000 APTS Melbourne 3yo C&G Final

APG Melbourne has the added bonus that fillies have a wonderful series on their own. The below is what the fillies will complete for:

  • $150,000 APG Melbourne Gold Bullion 2yo Fillies Final
  • $100,000 APG Melbourne Gold Bullion 3yo Fillies Final
  • $50,000 APTS Melbourne 3yo Fillies Final

The quality of this exceptional catalogue is on display from the very first lots. Let’s take a look at some more great examples:

Lot 230 Huntsville – Moremi Miss – Blissfull Hall

The first crop of Huntsville went through the Lexington yearling sale in 2020 and to be frank they were a smash hit. Huntsville averages an amazing $62,143 for his progeny (third leading sire on average behind Somebeachsomewhere and Captain Treacherous) and outsold Always B Miki, Bettors Delight and a host of other very good stallions.

Blissfull Hall, the broodmare sire in question for this lot, has already proven to work with sires on the Volomite line through Direct Scooter. A great example of this is J C Onthebeach - winner of $431,750.

While the above is very interesting, take a look at what the mares A4 family brings to the table.

Royal Verdict



Lot 232 Sweet Lou – Murganella – Bettors Delight

I can’t wait to view this lot as it ticks so many boxes. Prepared by the best in the business, Annie Dalton, buyers will be able to bid with confidence as Annie has led the way for preparers for more years than she can remember.

Sweet Lou is a multiple world record holder and exceptional speed machine! Sweet Lou has made a stellar start to his stallion career both in the northern and down here in the southern hemisphere. He was crowned the leading first season sire in both New Zealand and Australia in the 2018/19 season. His daughter’s Sweet On Me and Double Expresso were the two leading 2YO fillies in Australasia.

The Breeders Crown and Kentucky Sires Stakes winner Dancin Lou $1,119,848 has the same cross as the lot above, and is also from a mare who was by a Meadow Skipper through Cam Fella line sire.

Lot 234 Art Major – Nosotros – Albert Albert

A full sister to the Stars Align, winner of $463,225, this cross of Art Major over Albert Albert has had some staggering results over time and we are expecting this lot to generate some serious interest this weekend. Nosotros is from the mighty U30 family, with other family members being:

Holmes DG






Karloo Mick






Im Victorious






Galactic Star



Mach Alert



Dasher VC






Gaius Caesar



Elect To Live



Lot 240 Sweet Lou – Pleione – Village Jasper

The breeder here has nailed it, with seven of the top 15 broodmare credits for Village Jasper mares sired by Adios line sires just like Sweet Lou. This mare, Pleione, is from the outstanding N2 family. Other members are:

Terror To Love



Lombo Pocket Watch



Beaudiene Boaz
