SAD PASSING OF MATRIARCH TUGELA

2101527It was a sad day on Friday 24 October 2014 when the dam of legend Makybe Diva died at the age of 19. Her latest foals include a full sibling to Makybe Diva and the most recent foal is a filly by All Too Hard.

Makybe Diva is the greatest Australian stayer of the current era and possibly of all time and Tugela’s loss is a great loss to the industry. Currently she has La Amistad flying the family’s flag.

Tugela is pictured above with Makybe’s full sister.

I am a Small breeder of Thoroughbred horses for commercial sale and to race. I Started this site to provide a selling and marketing alternative for breeders with weanlings and yearlings to sell. Small breeders in particular can find it hard and expensive to leave their properties to go to the major sales. This site provides us with an online alternative to the major sales. The site can also be used to advertise youngsters being sold at the major sales and, if any youngsters are passed in, the site is an ongoing marketing platform to continue to market yearlings and weanlings after the sales are over. Trainers can also use the site to advertise shares in yearlings that they have bought at the sales.
