It’s with great excitement and pleasure that Australian Pacing Gold can announce that long-time supporter-partners and the elite breeding combination of Lindsay and Mary Vagg will be again leading the way with 100% of their draft featuring at the 2023 APG Gold Coast Sale set down for Sunday the 22nd of January.
The Vagg’s are based at Southbrook, a beautiful rural town on the Darling Downs, 10 km north-east of Pittsworth and 25km south-east of Toowoomba.
This region was traditionally dairying and cropping country however over the last 100 years this high quality country continues to be the foundation on which our sport’s very best are raised. Lindsay and Mary, along with many outstanding thoroughbred breeders understand the benefits of raising livestock on these rich pastures to give their bloodstock every opportunity to develop into an elite athletes. It’s clear the unique combination of low humidity and year-round cooler climates in the Southbrook area compliment the elements in the soil and water to produce well developed and relaxed horses.
Lindsay and Mary’s draft for the 2023 APG Gold Coast Sale looks to be one of their most exciting yet and when we spoke to Lindsay he said: “Mary and l are exceedingly pleased with the way this crop is coming along. Its truly been a sensational season up here in QLD and this draft of horses just seem to have a special look about them. The partnership we have with APG and their outstanding list of exceptional buyers is a special one and we will continue to breed and produce the best yearlings we can going forward. The two main messages we always like to get out are:
A. We breed to sell, no crazy games or high reserves with our horses.
B. Every Qld vendor, large or small deserves the same opportunities to display their exciting Qbred lots “
