JKNR Stable, a subsidiary of Blue Bird Meadows, will be featuring a pair of yearlings at the upcoming Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale. The yearlings will be part of the Blue Bird consignment at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26.
Heading the list of yearlings for JKNR Stable is a Rockin Image colt named JKNR Rockin, who sells early on Friday as hip number 16. The colt is a brother to Virgin Gold and JKNR Liketell, both of which have marks of 1:55.3 and 1:51.0, respectively. JKNR Rockin is out of the mare Guarding the Gold, who is a sister to the great Canadian contender Northern Luck, who made nearly $1 million during his career.
Joining JKNR Rockin is a first foal out of Banderosa named JKNR Yes Express. The colt is from the first crop of JK Endofanera with a lot of black type in the pedigree. Banderosa was a tough race mare in New York and took a mark of 1:55.4 during her three-year racing career before being retired to the brood mare ranks.
Both yearlings may be inspected prior to sale time at Blue Bird Meadows in Middlebury, Ind. To make arrangements to view the colts, call Daryl Miller at (574) 825-7176.
