Welcome to

Clarke & Croft Bloodstock

"RAISED AT ALTITUDE"

Why fly to New Zealand when you can have all the benefits here in NSW.  Clean fresh air and automatic altitude training at your back door.  The property is located near the highest city in Australia and is ideal for the raising of horses as there is little to no risk of ticks, bats, itches, mosquitoes, sand colic etc, as well as no neighboring mines.  The added benefit is these horses are bred tough, not on the soft wet ground of NZ.  No short cuts are taken in their raising, care and nutrition.  Horses receive two well balanced hard feeds a day, customized for the individual.  Babies are rugged from the moment they can stand and all horses are rugged through out the colder months.  Personal care and attention to detail is what sets Clarke & Croft Bloodstock apart.

Stryker/Dinkum Star Filly: This filly is out of a Gr3 mare who has produced stakes winning Strykum, her full sister, and is a replica of her sprinting Gr3 winning sire Stryker. A very strong 2yo type that matches her 2yo pedigree. Dam won 4 races, 3 as a 2yo, all over 1000m. She is a ripper of a type with attitude to spare, works like a machine and loves her food; everything you need in a good racehorse. It's a no brainer to come check this powerhouse out! She can be found at Barn B, Row 3. X-rayed and scoped, Super Vobis Nominated.

Canford Cliffs/Flying Dialogue Colt: Beautifully conformed colt by Canford Cliffs, 7 wins, 2 at 2. Dam a duel winning Fu Peg mare who is from the family of Diatribe, and is a half sister to Group placed Unannounced. Fu Peg is really kicking goals as a broodmare sire, his daughter's being responsible for horses such as Capitalist, Algeria etc... Big and scopey with plenty of bone - born and raised on fertile lucerne country near Mudgee, NSW. This colt has a wonderful temperament, like that of a gelding; his stride is long with a great overstep. Well worth an inspection, he can be found at the MM Adelaide Yearling Sale in Barn B, Row 3. X-rayed and scoped, Super Vobis Nominated. (See MM's online catalogue for a different photo)

Host/The Gem Filly: Out of a tough stakes mare who is a full sister to Gr2 winner Market Price, and has produced one runner for one winner. Great bloodlines include Marscay, Sadler Well's and double Mr Prospector; 2 dams to the page. By Host, a very underrated stallion, who has produced multiple group winners and performers and has well over 60% runners to winners; a stat that is unmatched by the majority of big-time commercial sires. This filly is a real runner; very athletic and fluent, long efficient stride, straight moving; natural muscle definition; lovely balanced conformation and faultless shape. Like many Host's she is not big, but at 15.2 on the hindquarter with plenty of leg still under her she will surely mature into something quite special. X-rayed and scoped, Super Vobis Nominated.

Hinchinbrook/Huiskes Colt: Out of a Stakes Hussonet mare who has had one foal to race for one winner. Her 2yo Snitzel colt is with Gai Waterhouse. This colt would be ideal for the ready-to-run market or those chasing a neat strong 2yo sprinting type. Double cross of Snippets and by one of the hottest young sires in Hinchinbrook, sure to be an early speedster.

Nicconi/Miss Electra Filly: Out of a stakes producer and half sister to Gr1 winner Kenbelle (dam of BOBAN). The family just keeps on running and running... This filly would suit those wanting real bang for their buck, a horse that could race on for years with considerable residual value after that. Beautiful sprinting bloodlines of Nicconi, Zeditive and double Star Kingdom. Scopey yet strong, long slopey shoulder with great front leg reach, very kind and willing, gives 110%. Due to being awkwardly bum high at present, she might just go under the radar.

Duporth/Pacific Belle Colt: Out of a winning half to Gr2 winner Street Smart. The family is full of speedy runners and winners.

Eats and works like a machine; tough, never had an 'off' day in his life. Sure to please his future owners and trainer!

Charge Forward/Capricious Lady Filly: From a great family full of black type, dam has produced all winners. This filly is quite possibly the best athlete we will ever breed. Pure athlete, huge over-step, very light on her feet, fast, covers a lot of ground, strong but not too heavy, powerful, solid medium squat 2yo type. It's a shame she will only be judged at the walk, if only people could see all she has to offer and how effortlessly she does it! Probably not the most perfect yearling at the sale, but definitely one of the best athlete's on offer! We envy the person who buys her!
