What's Happening at Glen Eden?
Our draft at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale sold really well. Even though we had a less than perfect draw in the sale we sold all five yearlings. The standout lot was the Cape Blanco ex Athenri which sold for $85,000. Our Reset ex Amy May colt went to Greg Eurell for $60,000. Greg has shares for sale if you might be interested. Other lots sold were Rothesay ex Sharp and Sassy ($47,500) Bel Esprit ex Zumbarina ($36,000), and Toorak Toff ex Layered ($20,000).
Busy time on the farm - all the foals are successfully weaned. It went without a hitch. Our policy of weaning later is definitely successful. It is great for the foal and the mare. Our new nanny is doing really well. Our horse handler is now working with the weanlings to educate them for leading and the farrier.
The weanling sales are in full swing. We attended the Inglis Sydney Weanling Sale on 3 May. The good lots were expensive – same as last year. Purchased a beautiful filly
All Too Hard ex With My
She is a good type and should be a popular prospect at next year’s yearling sales. We also attended the Magic Millions Weanling sale with the aim of purchasing more good types for our yearling draft. This sale was tough going with the prices exceeding what we were willing to pay to make a commercially viable prospect. We ended up buying two weanlings.

Mossman ex Varied Colt
I am very happy with all 3 weanlings. They are all very well bred, nice types, correct, and relaxed, taking everything in their stride. They will all be heading to the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale in 2016.
We will be attending the Inglis Great Southern Sale in Melbourne with the hope of purchasing at least one more.
