Good Judge Chris Ruttan had good things to say to breednet today about the bull point he bought: Rutten was once again active at the Karaka sales in January, attempting to unearth his next star. However, this year was a little different, with Rutten’s expert eye utilised by clients for the first time.

He purchased a Contributor colt out of Mapperley Stud’s Book 2 draft for clients for $50,000, while he also dipped into his own pockets once again to secure a Bull Point colt out of Brighthill Farm’s Book 1 draft for $100,000, and he is pleased with his progress thus far.

“The Bull Point is looking awesome, Jamie (Richards) has got that one and we are very happy,” he said. “He is in work at the moment, so he is going through the motions.”
