28/03/02 Easter 2002: The Cream of the Catalogue - My Top 100
The Australian Easter Yearling Sale presents what shapes as being its best catalogue next week. A total of 550 yearlings were catalogued for the three day selling extravaganza.

Attempting to select the top 100 youngsters in the catalogue is a huge task, especially when I have seen very few of the yearlings in the flesh. Then forced to rank the yearlings in the order of my preference is another huge task.

The following list will no doubt spark plenty of debate between seasoned breeding experts. Although these youngsters may not be the top 100 priced in the catalogue (which they definitely won't be) this is "my shopping list."
