Realta, a half-sister to last year’s Group One Queensland Oaks winner Provocative, has changed hands in a deal negotiated by Adrian Clark.
“Nearco Stud bred and sold both Provocative and Realta, only to lose their mother Betwixt, so this mare was an attractive proposition to buy back,” said Clark from his Cambridge NZ base today.
“I am on the outlook for further quality young mares off the track for Nearco Stud. We’ve had success in the past with the likes of Alagant Satin, Floramour, Mill Duckie and Miraculous Miss – they were all bought at the end of their respective racetrack careers,” he added.
Realta has been retired and will be based at Gordon Cunningham’s Curraghmore operation. Her initial mating is yet to be decided.
