30/01/02 Newlands Buy Viking Ruler's Brother for $800,000
1030vikingruler.jpg (11667 bytes)Newlands Thoroughbreds have paid $800,000 for the full brother of promising Group One winning three-year-old Viking Ruler, the highest price on the final day of the New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale at Karaka today.

Walteri Alteri, who owns Newlands with his wife Kathy, indicated the colt would ultimately be Newlands first stallion, on a property which until now had not housed a sire.

Bidding for the colt began at $200,000 and the hammer fell when Alteri held the bid of $800,000.

The Danehill colt from the Group One winning mare Tristalove was offered by Sir Patrick Hogan's Cambridge Stud and Hogan was forced to drop his original reserve which was reported to be $1 million.

Hogan said after the sale he dropped the reserve to $800,000 when he discovered that some of the "big gun buyers" were not there to buy the colt today.
