The residual value of mares


Owning a commercial stallion is the equivalent of owning prime real estate in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. The chances of executing that are somewhat small. However, the chances of achieving a broodmare dream are much more attainable. The upside of broodmares is their residual value. We have seen plenty of blue hen mares come from humble beginnings and it’s now easier than ever to own one. With the plethora of ownership opportunities available in Australia, becoming an owner has never been so appealing.

The breeding stock sales are taking place up and down the country and there is no better time to highlight the highs of racing a mare. Let’s look at some mares that came from humble beginnings but repaid their owners in dividends with our syndicators currently listed on our Marketplace.

Darby Racing

Yankee Rose

Darby Racing has always believed in sourcing value, and Yankee Rose was the ultimate blueprint. Purchased for $10,000 at the 2015 Inglis Classic Sale. She had ten starts for four wins. Her wins included The Group 1 Sire Produce, Group 1 Moet & Chandon Champion Stakes as well as second in the Group 1 Golden Slipper and third in the Group 1 Cox Plate. At the end of her racing career, she was sold to Northern Farm in Japan privately for seven figures. Three years later her third foal sold through the ring for $4.48M in 2021 at JRA sale. This is the most a foal or yearling has ever been purchased for from an Australian-bred mare at a JRA sale.

She will Reign

Purchased for $20,000. She had twelve starts for six wins. She won the Group 2 Silver Slipper, The Group 1 Golden Slipper, and the Group 1 Moir Stakes. Accumulating over $3.2m in prize money for her connections. She too was subsequently sold privately to Northern Farm in Japan. Her first foal by Heart’s Cry (JPN) sold for just over $2m.

Blazing Miss

Blazing Miss was 2018 Inglis Classic yearling graduate purchased for for $120,000. She had 31 starts for six wins. She was placed in the Group 3 Widden Stakes, second in the Listed Tatterstalls Classic, and third in the Listed Bright Shadow. She accumulated her connections just under $470,000 in prize money. The mare entered the ring at the 2022 Gold Coast broodmare sale where she sold for $325,000. She has subsequently sold again at this year’s Chairman’s sale for $590,000.

She ran twelve times for Tricolours, five of those were wins including the Group 3 Bell of The Turf Stakes, the Group 3 Godolphin Crown and the Listed Ladies Day Cup. She accumulated her connections just under $500,000 in prize money. That’s ten times her purchase price.

A year later she was offered for sale at the 2020 Gold Coast National Broodmare sale and sold for $560,000. Not bad for a $50,000 purchase!
