Soho Burning Love became the fastest harness racing mare ever bred in Australia after she clocked 1:48.2  winning at The Meadowlands, New Jersey  (June 19), and just happens to have a stunning Art Major Sister in this weekend’s Neds-APG Melbourne Sale. The six-year-old, who was bred by Robert Watson, has powered past the $530,000 mark in career earnings and looks set to build on that in 2022.

With more than $2.25M in local NSW & VIC Neds – APG prizemoney, it’s almost inconceivable to think 4 Victorian Fillies  & 4 Victorian Colts will progress through to the massive 2 x $750,000 Menangle Final.  For the first time in the history of Harness Racing, the very best Fillies & Colts out of the Neds – APG 2022 Sales will get to compete with the nation’s best on a phenomenal night of racing that can’t be missed.

The opportunities for investors in Harness Racing right now has never been better and with fillies like Lot 147 , this weekend’s sale at Oakland Junction promises to be taken to the “Neds Level”.

The Filly by Art Major, out of the wonderful producing Western Terror mare, Soho Bordeaux is set to have the sales ring buzzing come Sunday. Reports are that the interest in this filly is almost unprecedented this far ( 4 days ) out from the sale.

With a total of 17 Lots by the Hall of Fame Art Major listed to be sold this weekend, he looks to be a stallion very much in demand.

As a stallion, Art Major has sired winners of over $200,000,000 with 12 millionaires, including world champion Art Official p,3,1:47 ($2,082,885), winner of the 2008 Meadowlands Pace, Hoosier Cup and Cane Pace; 2014 North America Cup winner JK Endofanera p,3,1:48.2 ($2,049,580); world champion Hypnotic Blue Chip p,4,1:47.2 ($1,787,311), winner of the 2010 U.S. Pacing Championship; and 2007 Breeders Crown and Governor’s Cup winner Santanna Blue Chip p,9,1:51s ($1,666,701).

As a broodmare sire, Art Major is clearly leading the way with an incredible 19 stars that have won north of $500,000.
