22/03/02 Bhima Pulls the Plug on Easter Sale
The Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney next month has been dealt a blow after the decision of Bhima's Geoff and Beryl White to withdraw their seven well bred yearlings.

William Inglis & Son's Marketing Manager Melissa O'Gorman said last night that the White's made a decision a few weeks ago to withdraw their draft.

"We were told of their decision about three weeks ago," O'Gorman told Cyberhorse.

"It is a shame as there were some well bred horses in their draft this year," she said referring to a group by leading sires Danehill, Woodman, Marscay, Thunder Gulch and Danzero.

"The White's have decided they wanted to retain their horses and race them themselves."

"I guess the fact it's the last crop of Marscay could also be a major factor," O'Gorman added.

Bhima's Greg White, the son of Geoff and Beryl, said a decision was made a couple of months ago.

"It was the day before Yippyio was put down," White recalled.

A major reason behind the decision was the fact that the connections of the horses were keen to race their horses.

"Mum and Dad as well as Jack (Denham, the White's trainer) are all in their 70s now and we have experience a bit of a lean trot in the past few seasons and for the time being we will be retaining the horses," White said.

"It's also the last crop of Marscay and we have decided to keep seven youngsters by him as well."

"Let's just hope we are able to fill the void left by three good horses which we've lost in the last couple of months," White said.

Bhima had planned to sell a select draft which included a full sister to Danglissa, a Thunder Gulch colt from Triscay (making him a half to La Baraka), a Danehill colt and the Marscay half brother to Dandify and Manner Hill from the brilliant mare Mannerism.
