April 2009 - Carry On Cutie's first foal heads Bylong Park Draft at Easter
In a sale that could only be described as an extremely tough one for vendors, Bylong Park Thoroughbreds were fortunate to enjoy some solid results throughout both sessions of the William Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. In a buyer’s market, Bylong Park averaged over $130,000 for their draft, happy to meet the market in the ring. Leading the way was the well admired Redoute's Choice filly out of juvenile group one winner- Carry On Cutie. Carry On Cutie was the flag bearer amongst More Than Ready's outstanding debut crop of youngsters back in 2005, saluting in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick, beating the likes of Fashions Afield in the process. Carry On Cutie's run at the sales is far from over.
