Last year Michael Costa Racing landed some of the nicest yearlings on offer at the Easter Yearling Sales, Inglis Classic, Adelaide and Gold Coast Magic Millions.
At each sale I put together a short list of yearlings that are my stand outs of the sale. None of my stand outs include the higher end of market as they are not included in my shortlists. I also did not attend any of the non major sales where there are some great types to be found.
Whilst I would love to come home with all of my standouts some of yearlings go for way over market value, don’t pass x-rays or are by non-commercial stallions or mares making them hard to syndicate.
Below is a list of yearlings that made my short lists and are worth following over the next few years in racing.
