Orca Half-Sister At Magic Millions National Sale
A half-sister to weekend stakes-winning 3YO colt Orca (Carnegie-Slightly Conceited, by Centaine) is listed to go under the hammer at June's Magic Millions National Yearling Sale at the Gold Coast. Despite missing the start & racing at the tail of the field, Orca finished powerfully to swamp his rivals in the closing stages & win the Listed Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick. His yearling half-sister by multiple Gr1-winning Arrowfield Stud stallion Starcraft is part of the draft from Royston Stud for the National Sale. The filly's dam Slightly Conceited is a full-sister to 6-time Gr1-winning former champion filly Slight Chance (dam of group winners Salgado & Dane Shadow).
