Helmet Weanling Tops Day Two Of Great Southern Sale

Dr Napthine presenting Leading Small Breeder trophy to Glen Bailey This impressive colt by multiple group 1 winning stallion Helmet (Exceed & Excel), wowed prospective buyers at Oaklands Junction this week and topped today's sale at $100,000.  The popularity of the colt, who looks remarkably like his sire, was evidenced by the number of repeat inspections leading up to his sale and for such a young horse, thrust into an unfamiliar environment, he did everything asked of him and more. The colt, bred by clients Ken & Jenny Breese is only the second foal out of their city winning mare Take All Of Me (Jeune).  Born in the Hunter and raised at Basinghall we thank Ken and Jenny for the opportunity to consign such an outstanding example of Helmet's first season foals.
